zarc- I'm with you on the TV. The sound is very weak. I recently took out the CD/DVD player and tried all the cable connections and could not get the sound to go thru the speakers. There is a special cable with a coaxial end that I will try to find at Radio Shack and see if that works. Otherwise, I have not found a solution. I hope someone posts the answer here.

I have replaced all my lights with LEDs. They give off no heat at all and use far less battery if you are boondocking. I have some that are the brighter blueish white and some that are the softer yellow light. The yellow lights do not seem bright enough. I have put one of each in the light fixtures to try to get the best of both. Still experimenting.

I am really enjoying my 2109S. So far no problems at all.

I used an RCA cord from the TV audio out to the Aux in on the radio to get my sound thru the built in speakers. There are several sets of wires hanging back there(from the radio) just keep trying till you find the right ones.

Thanks, Bob but as I recall - there is no audio out on our TVs. (It's been a week since I played with this.) That's our problem. I have been reading some of the old posts on this issue and will try some of those ideas. Appreciate your input.

Is yours a Konka brand? That's what came with our 2306. There should be a plug coming out from the stereo with a yellow end on it... It will have a "aux jack" style plug (headphones type), not an RCA type plug. There's only one place it will connect to on the back of the TV. Then on your stereo, you have to keep toggling through the input selections until you find the correct one. I think mine is "Aux1".
Also... I recently purchased a Vizio so we could have one out one inside... It also has the different style input jack, so I'd think most of them should have it.

Thanks KDHfan. Yes, mine is a Konka. I will try that.

Now that I think about it, it might be the AV1 input option on your stereo, not Aux1.

Would you mind posting the model number of the bulbs you took out and the number on the LED's you replaced them with? I have a Surveyor 220, and I'm betting we have the same interior light fixtures, which are pretty standard. If you have that info, I would appreciate it. My bulbs get so hot that I'm afraid they are going to melt the lenses.

mjones12, the bulbs are 921 "wedge" bulbs. When purchasing the LEDs just look for the wedge connection. They are pretty common. Put a LED on one side of the pancake fixture and leave the OEM bulb on the other side. Then you can see just how hot the OEM bulbs get. I have replaced all of my bulbs with LEDs except the 2 reading lamps over the couch.

Those are 2 of the 4 bulbs that I wanted to replace. Why didn't you replace them? Are the LED's to dim to read by?

1) I got the TV to run thru the Jensen DVD sound system. I found a short cable, coaxial on one end and RCA on the other, sitting in the box where the TV plug is located. The coaxial end plugs in to the TV. I needed an extension RCA cable, yellow, white and red, because the coaxial cable is not long enough to reach the Jensen DVD player. I then removed the Jensen system from the wall and plugged in the other end of the RCA cables into the Jensen box. I used aud2. Now I can listen to just the TV sound (real weak) or listen to it thru the 5.1 sound system and speakers thru the Jensen box.

2) The bulbs over the couch have to be bright at the end for reading. The LED lights do not have enough of the little light chips at the end of the LED bulb, it seems to me. I read a lot and haven't been comfortable that the LEDs will be bright enough. I haven't tried anything yet. I figure if all the other lights are LEDs, I can keep these two reading bulbs. Just my thought process.
