TV Sound through RV Speakers

I have a 2013 Rockwood Roo. Is there a way to get the sound form the TV to play through the speakers in the trailer? The stereo has an A, B, C switch but none of them seem to allow the TV sound. I've looked in all the manuals and found nothing referring to this. The TV volume seem very low even when turned all the way up. Thank you for any advise.

Have you looked into changing the source on the stereo?

Make sure your audio wires are connected to the tv and to the stereo

I'm assuming it's a Genesis unit. Stereo needs to be on AV1 (not AU1...) using the Mode button. You should have some RCA cables on the output side of the TV going into the input of the stereo. Check that if the mode doesn't work. You A B C buttons turn sets of speakers on/off. My C channel is for the outside.

I have a Roo 183 with an iRV unit. There is a "TV" input on the radio. Just hit the "Mode" button until it says TV in the display. TV audio should come through your Trailer speakers. This assumes all of your wiring is correct. There seems to be a lot of issues with that from the factory.

Mine is a 2016, not sure if it's the same with your 2013...

Agreed. If it's not the settings then check your wiring. I finally got tired of ours not working as advertised and pulled the stereo and found the TV audio wasn't hooked up and the surround sound speakers were all wired together giving us mono. Plugged all the wires into the correct connections and now it sounds GREAT!

There should be a red/yellow pair of RCA cables running from the TV audio out to the back of the iRV unit. When I purchased my trailer, the cables were on the wrong TV ports.

Yes, and the SRC button should be set to TV AUDIO if the unit is the iRV66

Does anyone have issues with the volume control on the exterior speakers?
