Can not tell you exactly on how to do it, but it is in the 'tv' menu somewhere. I let the wife do it and just sit and smile while she gets it going. As a reminder, when you do get it going to the inside stereo system, make sure that the outside speakers are not on (unless you are outside). Watched half of a movie before we realized that our neighbors could hear it too.

Is it a Jensen system?
Our Jensen won't play through the sound system unless you hard wire the TV into the jack on the front of the audio system and use AUX.

Smile TV not Playing through Sound System

Well, I figured it out. The TV is a Jenson and it had AUdio Output jacks. The wires were installed from the TV output to the AUdio unit output. THat will never work. WHen I installed a new cable from the output of the TV to the input of the audio unit and went into the setup of the TV and turned the TV speakers off and turned the audio output to fixed. IT worked. They tried to make the three wire video and sound work for both TV and the DVD player. That would never work.

I also changed out one of the fans with the Heng's Vortex fan. Easy exchange. Instructions are not great, but if you have a knack for mechanical stuff it is very easy. Works like a charm and is a GIANT upgrade from the trashy little fans that are in the unit. I have another one for the kitchen area.

I also want to get a vent hood that vents to the outside. The area over the stove has to be open, so it should not be hard to vent it horizontally out the side of the unit. My Rockford Travel Trailer had this. If I work it out I will let the forum know about the outcome.

Outside TV

Does the 377 BAR come with the TV support to hook a tv on the outside. IF not, what works with the hardware that is attached to the outside over the passthrough storage area? Thanks, KF

Yes..both the TV brackets have the ears that will attach to the outside bracket.

Smoke Detector

Anyone have any problems with the smoke detector? Every time my wife cooks sausage even with the exhaust fan on, the smoke detector goes off. I took it down. I think I will replace it and maybe the new one will not be so sensitive. Any other suggestions??

My lincpad worked a couple of times on all my sliders. Now it only works on the bedroom slider. I wonder if I am doing something incorrect. I know the linc is active per the wifi manager. ANy ideas??? It is handy when it works. Especially for dumping water off of the slide out covers. I am working on a solution to keep the water off all the time.

A few days into our maiden voyage with the new bar...no complaints. Trailered well, even through some God awful mountain pass that the GPS sent us across. No leaks, no failures, no faults..except the fact that the awning is about 12 ft off the ground. Does the job but being so high, even a light rain can wet more than half way under. Happy with our choice...
