Crusader Audio/Video Question

Hello all,
First time poster here, just looking for a couple of answers. I'm thinking about purchasing a Crusader but I have some unanswered questions about the A/V system. Does the Crusader have any surround sound speakers in the main living area? I can only find the ones below the TV. (I'm looking at a 320RLT model). Secondly, can you hook up a TV to the speakers in the bedroom and/or the ones on the outside of the unit?

We currently have DirecTV HD receivers and dishes we take with us camping, so I'm trying to figure out what I would need to do to be able to watch 2 different channels in the front & back rooms or outside with a couple different receivers. The salesman I've been dealing with locally hasn't had many answers. Just looking for some help here from any owners with a setup. Thanks in advance for your time in answering this question. It looks like a great 5th wheel in my price range.

The speakers in the living room are 110v speakers just for front sound and tv in that room. The speakers in the bedroom are separate from the livingroom speakers. It's a Sound bar not surround sound nor dolby digital.

The bedroom stereo and speakers are not able to be hooked up to the tv for the bedroom either.

Hope this helps...

speakers in living room under the TV are driven by the RCA DVD/cd/am/fm player. Mine didn't come wired to play sound from the TV, I added the RCA cables to make it do that...no biggie. From what I see the Bedroom TV can't be hooked to the radio/speakers in the bedroom/outside. All 3 cable connections (living room/bed room/outside are all hooked together via a splitter by the Living room TV.

I have Dish Network. I added a HDMI Splitter and distribute the output to the bedroom and outside TV via HDMI Cables. I only use one receiver (HD DVR) as my DW likes what I do or reads. The DVR has a UHF Remote so I can get the guide and change channels at each TV location. The best is I get all the channels I get at home including the HD Channels. I mounted a Wingard Carryout on the rear ladder and ran the cable directly to the entertainment center, not through the sat hookup at the docking center. I can still use that input in the event I have to take the sat off the ladder to get a clear signal.
