In the process of moving the TV I discovered that the Audio out jacks are plugged into the wrong jacks in the back of the IRV unit, getting only the left channel. They were plugged into the input (wrong) jacks on the tv to begin with....WTF are the qualifications for someone to work at FR doing the wiring....and doesn't say much more for their QC dept neither.
Plus the antenna cable was 6" to short for the outside....But have 18" of slack inside.
There have been several of the same issues experienced by different owners...That in its self shows that FR needs to address this.
I will be pulling out my IRV, Unhooking EVERYTHING and start from scratch. I'm not a trained electronics installer but I'm sure I can do better.......


The HDMI Mod was on here someplace, I have given up looking for it....He ran a HDMI cable over to the outside antenna hookup, and that gives you the outside speakers since the one in the TV itself are worthless outside.

Rockwood Roo

I owned a 23SS Roo for six year and experienced minimal leakage through the tent ends, even through heavy thunderstorms. Wettest that encountered was generally along the hinge. If water does not run out of the gutter fast enough, water can wick up along the hinge.

On the Genesis radio in my HTT, they wired only the left channel to the internal speakers (A) left and (B) left were used. Since the radio doesn't have a fader, they used the L+R balance for inside and outside speakers (Outside was attached correctly to the (C) channel).

That antenna cable is so goofy. I was fortunate that I had extra cable with me but it is such an easy thing they could address.

I found that I have lines running along the screen if I pass the hdmi through the irv33. I am not looking forward to taking it out to verify its not just a cord issue so may try and tackle several mods at once. I sure notice a lot of hiss from that thing at low volumes as well.

I returned to close up the dried out tent ends today. It definitely was not as smooth doing it alone. I am still getting a feel for how far the mattresses need to pull forward. I do appreciate the short tongue...moving back and forth shoving stray canvas in while closing it is much easier. I don't know how you front deckers keep from smashing your knees. I did smash my head on the overhead shelf finally. It felt like a rite of passage.

So I was thinking today about my pugs and I have an idea I might try. Why not take a couple really strong suction cups with hooks and place them on the camper sides or in the opening where people place Velcro. Then, use awning deflappers or tarp clamps on the gizmos (optional step). Finally, take a couple bungee ball things and connect the two together in order to keep the pug snug and eliminate the dreaded slide down the canvas. Optionally just bungee around the pug cords.

This probably made no sense. I am a little off after the overhead shelf assault. I will try it and if it works snap some photos.

RooVader-On our old PUP, the pool noodle (one straight split cut into it) would stay up between the roof and the canvas with nothing else to hold it. The noodle just diverted some of the water that cascaded off the roof as we kept it pitched a little forward to promote drainage. I was thinking of several differet options to secure the PUGS. One is just to run the PUG between the noodle and the canvas and see if it held along with the side clamps and bungees. Second idea is to clamp (standard large office paper clamp-also called a binder clip) the PUG to the noodle on the side that is closest to the interior. Third idea is to velcro the PUG to the pool noodle. The first three ideas leave the noodle as a rain gutter. The last idea is to run the PUG between the noodle and the camper roof and then let the PUG flow out over the bunk end. This would not allow the noodle to act as a gutter anymore, just a wedge with no hard edges. I'm not keen on the last idea, but I thought I would throw it out there. I need the DH to try these ideas, as I am vertically challenged. I won't be able to get pictures for a week or so.

That would mess with the stereo recordings.....would hate to have to run in and out to listen to Skynyrd.

Thanks, great explanation! I think I might try my suck-a-pug trick first, then when that inevitably fails I will do a little noodle testing.

Roo crew that described the shelf incident perfectly. I had a moment where I had to take inventory on whether I was in fact still alive. I had visions of not being discovered until years later when a future family purchased the roo and opened the slide. Of course at that point I would be named RooZombie and I would totally ruin their shakedown cruise.

Let's be careful out there team roo!

I warned you about the shelve...But I still find mine on occasion.
Good thing we were at home, had an extra cable.
Closing...did you use the fans? Ours is a breeze to close up. It is a stretch to step around the hitch though.
