Played with it some more ......I mean ' I worked on it" and it seems only to work in this sequence !

Jensen stereo on first and set to HDMC-ARC Mode. Then TV on !

There is a few seconds of delay after turning on the TV before the stereo sound kicks in !

Hope this helps!
I think you mean HDMI-ARC mode. That setting takes the audio info from the HDMI cable coming from the TV. That's how I have to do mine, and yes, it does take 4-5 seconds for the sound to start.

I am not sure about the 303 on the tires. Tireman posted something about NOT putting some stuff on tires...it may have been petroleum prods?? Maybe he will notice the tire stuff.

According to Steeljag the beer is all that you need to get the speakers working. Quote: Had a beer and figured out how to listen to the TV through the stereo speakers! Then had another beer and just listened to the stereo !

I had them on my Roo 19. I replaced 2 of the 3 before I traded it in on my Mini Lite. (But I was prepared to replace the 3rd one if necessary!)

I had the 2015 Roo 23ikss and didn't have them on mine? Was it older ones they used them on? I had Plastic ones on all my Lines, and threaded brass fittings from lines into HWH.

My 2010 Roo had plastic valves and I didn't have a problem with them. I figured the brass valves would be better but apparently not.

Installed a new 32" flat screen TV and have it playing through the Furrion stereo. Been packing the camper for local trip for this weekend. Also installed new showerhead for hopefully better pressure.

Ladder to success

New to the Forest River Forums... I posted this in the Coachmen board, but today I built a ladder for the kids to get in and out of their bunks. I am still curious as to how the manufacturer planned for people to access the top bunk.

They planned for YOU to figure it out!

Ha. It's a mix of a few things. Apparently I have a "big head", and I did like to play staging games early in my drag racing "career". It stuck.

Roof leaked in the middle of the night. Had a nearby repair shop seal the some spots. Hopefully that will keep water out. Now I a trying to wick the water out of the foam in the soft touch ceiling. I sure hope I don't end up with rot or mold.

Going up?

As for the lack-O-ladders, you missed the button on the wall that beams you into the bed-while the lesser models use an inverted slide to lift you up there....lol.

About as smart as "them" not putting toilet paper holders in most of the bathrooms!

I can see the no paper holder thing. No matter where they put it 90% of the wives will make us reposition it.

At some point during every day you suddenly realize nothing else productive is going to happen the rest of that day. For me, it usually occurs around 9 am.

Towed the 5er over to Magnum Trailer for the annual inspection, then towed it back to the storage lot. Climbed up to the roof and resealed all of the dicor. I'd noticed it was cracking like crazy.
