Jensen TV and Audio System

We have a 2014 Cedar Creek 32RL. Our TV does not play sound through the audio system speakers only through the TV speakers when watching OTA channels. DVDs play sound through the audio system speakers. How do we get OTA TV channels to play through the audio system speakers?

Second question: We know there are speakers next to the audio system and think there might be other speakers but do not know where they are or how to make them work.

Thank you for any and all assistance.

Here is a link to your manuals on-line: Manuals & Guides
You will need the model numbers for your specific units.
You may need to add an "audio in" cable to the DVD/Radio. Im thinking the speaker selection will be found in the setup menu.

Your stereo unit should have rear speakers in the ceiling over the seating. There is probably a sub woofer under the cabinet by the TV.
If your unit has a fancy sound bar, you may not have any other speakers.
Hope this helps.

I have the manuals and cannot find anything that helps. There are no rear speakers in the ceiling and no sound bar. The tv is one that goes down into a cabinet behind the fireplace and audio system. I can see that the tv has RCA cables in the audio out, but cannot determine what they are connected to. I do have two outdoor speakers, but cannot find any other speakers than the ones beside the audio system inside the RV.

The audio system is the AWM968. I have the manual for it and for the Jensen TV 14 series.

OK, According to the manuals for your electronics, you must connect the Audio Out left and right RCA plugs on the back of your TV to the Audio In left and right RCA plugs on the back of your Radio/DVD player. Then, by selecting Aud on the radio remote (button 25) you should be able to route the TV audio thru the radio speakers. You can then use the audio set up on the TV to turm off the TV speakers.

Your radio has 3 speaker pair selections. A,B and C. You do not have center speaker functionallity nor do you have surround sound. You can connect rear speakers and wire them to the existing harness on the radio. You can then use the built in fader to adjust speaker pair volume. However, it appears that you can only select one of the 3 options at a time. So, assuming your inside speakers are on A, you must wire rear speakers to the A circuit. B is probably your outside pair and C would then be unused. The radio would most likely have to be removed to wire additional speakers or connect the audio in on the back if you cannot get to it.

If you want real sound you might want to take a look at this:
Concertone ZX800
Its a 12v system for that real "Boondocking" experience.

Duckogram,

Thanks so much. The audio out on my TV menu is greyed out. There are audio out cables that run into what appears to be the cabinet which contains the fireplace. I would have to remove the radio to access the back of it. It sounds like trying to get the TV to play through the stereo might be more trouble than it is worth.

TV audio

The previous reply is almost corect. All you need is a patch cord with RCA plugs on one end to attach to TV out sound and a 2.5 mm stereo plug on the other end that plugs into the front jack on the Jenson unit. You will need to cyle to Aux 3 input and then you will have TV audio thru the house speakers!

Yep. That should work however it is very "UnCreeker Like". You would have to unplug to lower the TV as well. (well, maybe not if you don't mind smashing the patch cord.)

If you already have audio out cables then it may already be connected. Have you tried the Aud button?
