Cruise lite radio help

Howdy all,

So, just picked up my 2017 Cruise Lite 201bhxl and am testing it out at a campgeound on my way back home. So far, it's awesome! Just having a couple small problems hopefully someone can help with.

The radio/dvd player works, but will not output to the rca cables. I can here the movie, but the TV says no signal... also, anyone have any info or manuals for the radio pictured?


Thanks!

I have the exact same thing. I can't get the radio to time AM stations. Looks like the radio is a European model.

Have you found a manual? Is the brand really "Drive"?

I have the same "Drive" Stereo. Nearly impossible to find anything about this thing. Looks like it could be a Jensen "knock-off"!

Finally.....I did find a PDF Manual posted from another Forum Member. Look at posting #22 for the link to the PDF Manual.

In the context of this post, TV refers to "Television" and not "Tow Vehicle."

The "No AM Radio Reception" is a common problem, it seems these RV radios in TT's, Fifth Wheels, etc. are connected to the TV Antenna and as such, are not seeing any AM signal. By the very nature of the TV Antenna system, it will provide little to no coverage of AM broadcast radio.

These radio receivers were intended to be connected to an "automotive" style AM/FM antenna, which would provide the intended AM and FM reception.

That said, the "TV" antenna connection will provide excellent FM performance when the antenna/amplifier is turned on; that performance will be "directional" to an extent, as the antenna is pointed. FM Radio used to lie between old VHF-Low and VHF-High stations; while FM has not moved, TV is fruit loops now with the advent of "Digital." For the sake of simplicity, much of TV lives up in what we used to call UHF-TV land.

Many radios have a switch hidden on the back for, lets call it "Euro" versus "US" frequency standards, if your FM stations work then it is set correctly for FM and AM.

Here's a link to the manual:

Pressing the silver knob provides access to option settings.

I fixed my radio tuning problems, it was set to European model. The station scan works now.
