TV Antenna

I have a forest river FR3. Just purchased it. No manual came with it. My questions: the king jack antenna inside on the ceiling..can it be adjusted to get better reception? Also I cannot get my DVD to play. What is up with that?

Contact your dealer that you bought your FR3 from. You should have received an owners packet with all the info you are asking about.

My DVD did not work either, took it back to dealer, not properly connected at the back of the Control Center. One of the easier fixes for the dealer.

Make sure you adjust the source on the TV it's self.

Tried mine today. To play a DVD, turn on the Kitchen TV and press the Source button on the Furrion remote control. Use the down arrow button to change it to AV. Then stick the DVD in the Panasonic player in the dashboard, it will read the disk and play it by itself. When the menu comes up use the PANASONIC remote control to select play or scenes etc. It's weird getting used to pointing the control at the dashboard to control to TV. Also, only the Kitchen TV is connected to the Panasonic, it does not play on the bedroom or outside TV's.

For over the air TV, turn it on and set the source to TV as described above. Then turn on the power antenna located above the broom closet next to the stairs. When we did our PDI, I asked about how to go about pointing the antenna and he told us it does it all automatically. I've only tried it near Chicago and all the stations come through perfectly. Now I noticed a King/Jack control on the bedroom ceiling and couldn't remember what it did, there was no book or reference to it in my package. On the internet I found out it is a meter for aiming an antenna, below is a link to the directions. I haven't played with it because I didn't know what it was but I'll explore it when I go out to the boonies over the weekend.

Just sweep it up and clean it with a damp cloth. We got some throw rugs down.

So you don't have a DVD player near the TV in the wall stereo? We have a 2015 and ours is next to the TV. But we didn't have a DVD in the dash. I did update the in dash with a touch screen with a GPS and moved the camera screen up on the dash so I don't have to look down at the screen when I want to see it. What do they have next to the TV now?

fpo1123 No wall stereo at all on mine, everything runs off the Panasonic in the dashboard.

I just looked up the 2016 and noticed that. It looks cleaner, but not sure if I would like having to use the dash radio for all of it.
