Television & TT Speakers?

Does anyone know if the TV can be plugged into the TT built-in speakers?

I have a 2011 Rockwood 1809s. The sound quality of the TV by itself is weak and I'm sure would sound better if I could easily utilize the TT speakers...

More info will be needed to make a determination. What is the TT sound system? You need to figure out if the current sound system is capable of audio inputs and also if the TV has audio outputs. If the answer is yes to both it could be as simple as installing a audio cable between the 2 components.

Exactly, there are a few possible methods of connecting tv audio to your speakers. My tv can hook to my speakers thru my genesis/concertone sound system via RCA's, Aux cable or optical audio cable. What sound system do you have? What type of audio outputs are available on your tv? Are you getting your tv signal via satellite?

I was able to do this with a custom jumper. I ran the RCA audio out on the TV to an RCA to 3.5mm adapter. Then I used a regular 3.5mm jumper wire (IPOD adapter) to go to the stereo in for the IPOD on the front of the Genesis. Turn on the input and you have TV thru the stereo.

If your TV only has a digital output, a converter is needed to convert the fiber optic output to L/R (white and red) RCA analog for the TT system.

Sewell A-BLOQ Analog to Digital Audio Converter on eBay!

This one works just fine. You will also need to buy the cables.

A good source for inexpensive cables is:

You could use a wireless transmitter, the kind that you would use to play an MP3 player through your stereo. It simply plugs into you cigarette lighter outlet, connect the TV audio outs via an RCA to 3.5mm stereo jack cord, and your tv will play through the stereo. You can buy them for around $20.00. I recommend looking for one that offers the ability to change the transmission frequency. If your TV doesn't have RCA outs you can use the headphone output.

Pictures or model numbers would be helpful.
Every camper has different equipment in it.
We can be more specific if we knew what you were dealing with...

I guess I'm not understanding this post all together.
Both my tt and 5er I was able to play sound through the speakers
By simply putting entertainment center on aux1.
Its a must when the air is on.
what am I missing about this post?

Apparently not all campers were hooked up this way. I have had to help several other folks over the years where the outputs of their flat screens were not connected to the AV system of the camper.

The TVs are shipped to the dealer in a box. They are installed at the dealer as part of the prep. Not all dealers have an "AV Department" to figure it all out.
