The door struts are a great idea, I'm getting them. Thanks for the link Clint.

Your welcome gentlemen. Like I said, I used cargo door latches before considering another option. I still might do the struts since it is a one-hand operation. Let us know how the installation goes D and R.

I want to run this by those on this thread first (since you know the 29hfs) and will include it in a new post on more of a generic forum. Not sure yet.

I would like to accomplish a couple of things with sound and video. I am not happy with much about what I have now.

EDIT: I should have added, I will do all the work and the budget is $800 - $1000

*Build an overhead cabinet at the TV wall
*New bluetooth radio
*Amp or Amps
*New speakers in cabinet (w/small sub)
*Upgrade existing inside and outside speakers (possibly later time)
*Rewire to existing speaker locations
*Extend radio antenna to new cabinet
*Probably run wire to and add speakers in garage
*Probably run wire to and add speakers at the head of the bed

Of course, the TV will still be below the cabinet and the Dish receiver and blu-ray player will be in the cabinet. I would like to do some LED lighting step it up a notch or two.

I can't get the .png to upload showing the floor plan??

Installed a paper towel holder (exciting isn't it?) but kind of a twist. Inside upper cabinet over sink but I can pull off towels with the door closed. Also, I am in the process of swapping all hinges to self closing and with that removing the factory catches and adding Phlip-It latches. I also made some pull out drawers for the deep cabinet next to the fridge, but that's all I'm saying for now.

Not sure whaz up, but I can't attach photos... thought it might be my phone, so I tried with PC. Next I will try my digital camera.

I have an Alcatel android that I really like, and have added memory card, but almost nothing on it, while the phone memory is about 90% full. I need to find out how to move things to the SDI, or delete apps that I seldom use. Frustrating!

Not really sure how much the RZR weighs (we thought 1000#) but it must be heavier. Third time, DH got wise and decided to try it with the RZR backed in so the engine would be at the back (towards the bathroom door). In these things the motor is in the back, make sense? Tows much better with the front of the RZR facing the ramp. We are towing it with our F250 and it's fine - it's just that you can feel that "tug" when she's loaded up. Love, love, love our toyhauler. Still feel giddy when I see it.

I back my 800 in and then fill the front grey tank with about 15 gallons of water. It helps with the sway caused by the RZR in the garage.

Tow with a dodge 2500 HD diesel.

How will you run new wires?

Last month I took the trailer to the guys who did my truck stereo system because I couldn't play sound only inside or out with the crap system that came with the trailer - you could always hear it in both places.

I had them put in a Kenwood AM/FM/CD blue-tooth head unit with an auxiliary jack that I can plug my TV or mobile XM radio into. Can be paired with my phone and tablet, and has a remote. Also had them put in an amp, subwoofer, and two dials (mounted on cabinet) to control the inside or outside speakers. The sub is an enclosed box that I can unplug and store when travelling, I couldn't fit it into the entertainment cabinet in my 27HFS. The amp is tucked away in the cabinet so well, I can't get pictures of it.

It has really good sound and I can totally control where the sound is now. I used the existing speakers and wiring (other than power), but was wondering about replacing both at a later date. May require special depth speakers - not sure how much room we have to deal with.

Last time out I played movies on the tablet plugged into the 40" flat screen (HDMI) which was plugged into the Kenwood - sounded great! We're really roughing it eh? LOL

On #1 post I mentioned adding a Sony amp to the radio, but its a 2 channel and driving the inside 6x9s... not bad actually. The outside speakers are a joke. I can actually use fader to control inside / outside volumes... PITA.

I ran a #10 for power and ground from the batteries.

Steve, what model is your head unit and subwoofer? I could put the sub in the bottom of the pantry and replace a door panel with cloth, if it would fit.

On the 29hfs, the radio is in the pantry cabinet and the receiver and TV across the living room on the bedroom wall. This presents obstacles for sure.

With everything together on the bedroom wall means a lot of rewiring, which would be either under the floor, which would mean taking off the belly pan (again) or possibly fishing it across the ceiling including the antenna lead.

As nice as it would be all in one place. I think with a remote control, bluetooth head unit (like you have), a decent 4 or 5 channel amp with cross over, a sub, simple volume controls, plus bluetooth adapter on the TV audio (transmit) to bring audio to the head unit would be okay.

I also like to listen to the TV on a wireless headset. With AC running it is the only way to go; when I am by myself.

I still have to deal with the crappy way I mounted the Dish receiver above the TV on a homemade bracket / shelf. I would still like to close it in and I also need to lower the TV mount. Maybe I can mount it flat rather than sticking out 18". More research to see if the remote will work like that.
