Just got back from a weeklong trip. Still no solution on the stereo sound issue.

Sorry. Works great with built-in cd/dvd player.

We are experiencing a major cold snap with near freezing temperatures. Therefore, I went to the camper to partially winterize it as we will be using it for a week long trip in two weeks. I drained all the water and then blew out the city water using a screw in fitting. The problem came when I tried to blow out the fresh water tank using the fill insert (plastic tube on the end of a female threaded connector). The plastic tube came off. I tried to retrieve it with my pinky finger without luck. Down into the fresh water tank it went.

Question – how do I get it out?

If I can't get it out, what are the potential problems?

Looking for knowledgeable help.

Hisense tv has digital audo out via wired cable
Samsung home theatre dvd system has digital audio in via optical cable.

You need a digital audio to optical audio converter box AND the input output cables.
Funkyjunk explains this a few posts up.

I saved this message from a previous post in another thread..............

I am pleased to report that using a digital coaxial audio cable out of the HiSense TV to a coax in to fiber optic out converter and then using a fiber optic out to the Samsung entertainment system will give you surround sound.
You will need to go into the Tv menu select audio-select s/pdif-select
dolby digital and then exit. On the Samsung receiver select source as digital-in. Remove the rca to mini plug for headphones from the Tv.

Try "coax to optical converter" in your favorite search engine. If you like PM me and I will send you a link. The bigger expense may be the cables. You will need one coaxial audio cable and one toslink/optical cable. I also added a surge protector/power strip so that I could plug in the converter wich has a built in power supply, tv and reciever all behind the tv.

I would go the way Redfinafict is going:

Digital coax cable to converter from Hisense "audio out jack"

"Digital Audio Coaxial
SPDIF Coax to Toslink Optical Digital Converter" (Amazon)
Converter needs power, plug available next to the TV, left side.


Using digital audio fiber optic cable, Converter to
Samsung "audio in".

How long is the tube? We had a 4 year old girl diligently drop each one of her plastic horses into the black tank of our old Class A (45gallons). Each was too big to fit through the valve, and we quickly found on a molded plastic tank the only way to get into it is to remove it, and cut a hole, then fashion a gasketed entry "door". Which we decided NOT to do for many reasons. We lasted a year with those horses down there, and they never caused a problem.

I don't see how this could possibly cause a big problem in the fresh tank, even if it occludes a drain line it will only do so momentarily. The worst/best case scenario is that it blocks the outlet line to the pump. If that happens you can break that line, remove the pipe, and re-plum flex hose. All pretty easy, and cheap. Iíll look at my system tonight and see if there is a better way.

Smile Retrieving Plastic pipe in fresh water tank

Thanks.

I was thinking the same thing (letting it be). The thought crossed my mind today about giving it a "colonoscopy" if I could find a flexible line with a camera and something to grab the tube. (Being over 60 I am acquainted with colonoscopies.

I used the digital audio cable going from surround sound system to satellite feed. It worked great. For air channels we have bought a sound bar!!! I almost like it better than the surround sound for satellite. Will probably get one over the winter for the bedroom!!! Yes I liked it that much!

Sounds like a great opportunity to get another object stuck in the tank. We do have borescope here if you're in the northern MN area . Then at least you can see the tube, outside of a surgical instrument, I'd be surprised if you found a borescope with a claw. Then if you find one, and get the tube out, 60's or not, I'll give you a job right now.

where/how did you mount the sound bar? What kind of sound bar is it? Have you moved with the sound bar yet, and if so did it stay put?

It is not mounted I store it when we move. It is an RCA from WalMart ---about $60.00. Here is a picture----
