Sound Bar under TV

Can anyone with a 2013 or 2014 with a TV sound bar like this tell me what is the manufacturer or model?
Is it any good?

Don't have one in the camper yet, but recently purchased a Vizio with wireless sub-woofer and satellite speakers for home and it is great. Will probably get a smaller version for the camper in the spring.

it looks like mine. its a I-trak. I will replace it soon. Low sound quality. I have a fireplace and therefore did not come with a sub. The sound in my whole Berkshire is really low quality. I will be replacing the speakers in all the audio and probably be putting amp and some wireless speakers throughout.

Thanks for letting me know its a waste of time to get one like that.
I plan on upgrading my TV as it is a bare bones Toshiba and I need better sound. The surround sound system in the Georgetown MH is garbage and looking at a good sound bar to go with my future Samsung LED TV.

All depends on the brand! The one that came in my berkshire was not good at all so I replaced it with a good samsung sound bar and wireless subwoofer! I have the same one in my house and love it. There are plenty of good brands out there that will make the inside of your coach sound like a movie theatre! Again I have the Samsung in my coach an house and love them!!! Hope this helps!

I have a 14 Berkshire 390bh and it looks like mine is an RCA RTS635. Seems OK but haven't used it that much.

my 2014 has the RCA. There's also a sub wired into all that mess somewhere, and there's a switch up on the right inside the cab that powers it on and off.

Our Legacy has the itrak sound bar and is definitely not adequate especially if using tv for family while driving.

I bought a Polk 5000iht which sounded great and came with a small wireless sub. The itrak if I'm not mistaken is only 2x 10 watt speakers. I may try to put the itrak in the compartment with the outside tv.

When I swapped my 14 berk's sound bar out with the samsung soundboard with wireless sub, I used the optical digital cable and plugged it into the digital output on the back if the tv. This way I always have sound going to the sound bar no matter what input on the tv in using.

We replaced our RCA soundbar in our '13 Berk 360QL with a Bose Solo $399.00. No sub woofer needed. What a difference it makes. Really rocks the coach with great surround sound, including deep base.

We just got our RV. I had read about the "home theater" and sure enough it lived up to expectation. It would be better if they just pre-wired the thing and let the customer choose how to proceed. Some people really don't care while there are those of us who do! My wife is in the first camp and the reality based likely usage, I should be too.
That said, I have a tentative plan for if/when. The outside, bedroom and mid RV TV's are likely going to be morning news/casual viewing so not too concerned. I put an HDMI cable on each TV for a decent input (PS3 or iOS device) because that Clarion is pretty poor, just like the Jenson in other units.
The "primary" TV though is where the "theater" is laid out. For this I think the best approach is a good sub-less stereo set up. It will depend on the TV's ability to have variable volume in the headphone jack. Assuming the TV does have that, this plan should be good. I'm a bit torn but the Bose Companion 2, M-Audio AV-40 or Definitive Incline. I'm thinking for ease, putting the speakers in the cabinets may be easiest. I believe all those speakers are directional anyway so should work out well. I'll try to report back if/when this goes down!
