Heritage Glen DVD player question

I have a new 2017 Heritage Glen 27bh with the dvd player/radio combo. It has a usb port on the bottom left corner. Does this unit play movies from a flash drive? If so, how? Mine doesn't seem to recognize when a flash drive is inserted. Any help would be appreciated. thanks!

Regretfully it does not... at least the 5070/5090 Jensen's that come in most trailers do not.

Do you happen to know the model number?

Not that it matters just sharing to give you ideas:
We have a TV in ours that we can broadcast to with and IPAD, HDMI w/DirecTV, HMDI w/Fire-Stick, HDMI w/WII, and a PC connected to it. MIFI Verizon Jet-Pack for Internet, PLEX Server at home that we sometime stream movies from to the Fire-Stick.

Bummer. Thank you for the info though. Is there an aftermarket radio/dvd player combo that fits in the travel trailers with superior functionality? It would be nice to play blurays and play movies from usb. Thanks!

For the money you'd be better off buying a BluRay/DVD player with built in USB from your local electronics store. To answer your question yes there are stereo's out there that would somewhat fit, you would have to maybe add a back-plate unless you bought a radio specifically for an RV. Our TV will play MP4's and a couple other formats off a USB drive, check your TV. Keep in mind we replaced our TV with a larger residential model with more inputs to fit our wants and requirements... I'll add some pictures soon of our installation.

Can you provide the make/model of the player and the TV that is currently installed? There is not much our there on the 12V side in hi def but you might be able to use a small inverter to power a 120V blue ray player and then run the sound to the radio inputs if available. Need to understand your present components ins/outs to make a proper recommendation.

I am having a difficult time locating the model number and manufacturer info for some of the accessories in my camper. The touch screen remote for example, I had to call the dealer to find out who made it so that I could look up how to change the pin. The radio in the camper doesn't have a name brand on it, let alone a model number. I didn't see any literature on it in the documentation they provided. I suppose I can call the dealer again, but I thought it would be more apparent than that. Even if you go to the forest river website they don't give specific details for the accessories in their units. Thankfully the TV says Jensen right on it so I have a starting place. I don't know the specific model number for the TV, but at least I know it's a 32" Jensen. It does not operate unless I'm plugged in so it either does not operate on 12v or it is not hooked up to switch seamlessly. I'm still a noob to the RV scene so I'll learn as I go. Thanks for all the help.

OK, it appears I have the Magnadyne 5090 Linear Series 120 Watt AM/FM/CD/DVD In-Wall Receiver w/ Remote Control & Bluetooth Audio. When in doubt, search RV radios on Amazon.... https://www.amazon.com/Magnadyne-RV5...words=rv+radio

Interesting it says it has bluetooth. I'll have to download the manual now that I know what I have. It wasn't obvious it had bluetooth from just playing around with it.

My jensen tv doesn't run on 12volt in my Heritage Glen.

I saw that was one of your questions
