27RR - Furrion DV3100 DVD problems

I picked up my new 2016 27RR a couple of weeks ago and just got around to putting a TV in last night. There is an issue with the Furrion DV3100 DVD player outputs.

I hooked up a coax cable and can receive a few TV channels with no issue, but when I put a DVD in the player I am only getting the audio through the ceiling or outside speakers. I do have an RCA cable connected for the DVD.

It seems like the outputs from the DVD are not connected to the RCA jacks, as I have tried numerous inputs on the TV, along with trying another TV as well. No go.

After having read other threads where the jacks have been wired incorrectly or not connected at all, I am beginning to think this might be the case.

Any suggestions?

The same thing happened to mine. There are rvs connections in back that have caps on them these are the ones that it needs to be connected too. Especially the yellow video cord. The casing on front of DVD pulls off and then there are screws holing it into cabinet. You can pull it out and rewire. I went in from the side which was tricky without busting up the luan. Good luck

Thanks Ron. It probably is something like this. I will have to pull that unit out when I get out chance to check.

Because mine is a 27RR (it looks like yours is a 26RR) I'm not sure if I can get in there to run wires if I need to. The newer 27RR's have the shelf above the DVD player where the TV is located. No empty cabinet like the older ones where you could get into to run cables.

If that is indeed the issue it may not even be worth running new wires, but would be much easier using a separate DVD player.

Why would Forest River even bother to have an RCA connection plate if they are going to wire the thing? Bad form.

You don't have to run new wires just change rca cables to the ends that have a cap. Should be able to see fine to do this once you pull DVD Click image for larger version

I accessed through shelve space beside DVD after removing small piece of luan separating the shelf and back of DVD compartment.

The first thing I would do is contact your Dealer. Your warranty could be voided on the DVD player if you accidently short something out, of course your dealer would never accuse you of such a thing. I had my dealer give me written permission to remove and replace my DVD/CD/Radio, also extended warranty on unit.

When I contacted Forest River about the same problem, he told me it was a fairly common issue. For mine, I just pulled the front cover off the DVD unit (it snaps off) then had to change the video connection to the correct place on the back. After you pull the cover, there are a couple of screws holding the unit in there.

Already fixed on my 26rr I brought home yesterday. You really have to put the unit to see what is going on behind. For mine all I had to do was move the yellow on the back over one connector. They had it plugged into the port for the subwoofer? Also the ceiling jacks are weird how they are setup. The red and white are wired to aux in on the back of the unit. So you have at least two options.

Option #1 - leave red and white as wired and from audio out on tv run to the red and white ceiling jacks. Yellow from ceiling plate goes to video in on back of tv (DVD video out on unit) This plays all sound through ceiling speakers both dvd and when using antenna.

Option 2 - As others have suggested you switch all 3 in back of unit to DVD out. Ceiling plate then gets wired to yellow white and red video in on back of tv. Sound for DVD would also then play through ceiling speakers and tv speakers but antenna will only play through tv speakers.

Really don't understand why it was wired wrong to not work in either configuration to begin with. I also don't understand why one video out connector has an adapter from an rca yellow video to a coaxial cable. I didn't mess with it but something I have never seen before.

I wired mine for option 1

Thanks for all the tips guys. I was able to pull the unit out of the cabinet over the weekend and it ended up that FR did have the plugs in the wrong jacks. Just moved them to the correct ones and all is good (at least with that problem).

My big question is, how does a mistake this simple happen over and over again? It seems from the posts on this board that this is a pretty common problem. Exactly what kind of workers do that have at Forest River assembly and where do they find them?

Right after I corrected this problem I went to use the folding door handle on my NEW toy hauler and it came right out of the side of the unit. This is what I saw behind the lower handle bracket; looks like they had some trouble with screws at the factory.???

Yeah looks like they butchered that. Is there any wood left behind there to get a grip on with new longer screws?

You might need to run bolts through with a backing plate inside.
My last rig I had to keep upgrading the attachment of the sink and stove to the wall.
I finally got 1/2" bolts and heavy duty L brackets and bolted them to the wall.
Never had a problem again. Yes, it hurt me to put a hole in the wall but had to be done.
