RE: replace factory dvd/stereo in trailer

Pull it then get whichever brand/model you like. Course depending on opening you might have to make it larger or get cover plate to install. Audio shops have LOTS of choices and installation options. I like Clarion and JVC brands I put a JVC in my last truck. I liked that unit. I put a Jensen in my current truck. It's OK. Both are double din DVD/ Stereo. Either one as well as many others would work. I was asking more about the fit in the cabinet face. I should have searched the internet first. I just found a bunch of them. They are referred as "wall mount" rv stereos. they look to be the same size as the cover plate on the stock one. So... has anyone replaced theirs with a recommended unit that is "wall mount". I am not looking to have anyone install it for me. I just want to find a good unit on the internet and install it myself. Thanks!

RE: Jensen JRV212T Blank Screen

Don't know if you found your answer but it you look on some of the other forums you will find that probably thousands of the Jensen JRV212T have had the same issue including mine in my almost new rig. I am amazed at the number of people with the exact same problem and it's been going on for YEARS people! I don't care if I bought a cheaper motorhome or any of this other nonsense. The complete failure of this radio has been now going on for years and companies keep putting them in and Jensen keeps making them. The only ones we're hearing about are those people that are members of these forums. I can only imagine how many of these have failed industry wide. At $500-$900 a pop this is just wrong! THIS PIECE OF **** SHOULD HAVE BEEN RECALLED years ago but instead I get a recall to have my shower door replaced because it will burn too hot?

RE: Jensen TV shuts off after 10 minutes

I just replaced my Jensen TV. I got a 28' Samsung which has twice the viewing area of the Jensen. The Jensen works perfectly but is small. The drawback is that the Samsung needs 120 VAC. Not so bad since we mostly use RV parks with shore power. I have an inverter but not really got it functional yet. Considering the cost of a replacement Jensen, I would recommend doing something along the same lines.

Jensen TV shuts off after 10 minutes

have tried pretty much everything but am completely open to new suggestions. Even took TV off wall and brought to electronics store who said it worked all day for him. reconnected it back to coach and shuts off again after 10 minutes with no problems turning back on. Power was tested with ample voltage to unit, also changed out inline fuse and wire to glass, and there is no timer set either.

RE: Jensen In-Command

.......I just purchased a 2017 Keystone Outback 312BH with the IN-Command system installed. For the tech enthusiast and IT professional such as myself, I do love it,but I can be a little critical about it. First of all my dealer never did a full demo of it for me during purchase, they never explained how to pair the system to a cell phone or even where the manual overrides are if needed. I myself can figure this out easily, but the average consumer may need help with this.... I just purchased a 2016 and my CW people did not walk me through it either! THANKS SO MUCH for your info, I logged onto the electronic's site, they had a youtube video that showed me how to bluetooth link my phone and set the floorpan up (making what I am seeing on my phone, is the same as I see on the inside screen and the thingy works like a top! Although I kind of think this JENSEN thing is mostly for A CLASS, but still it's real neat to be able to set the whole thing up from outside, like lowering my stabs, I can stand outside while the feet come down and position my 2X10 supports under them... Also as I put my slide outs out, or put them in, I can monitor their movement. As we come back from walking in the evening, I can turn my security lights off or on....A great option from KEYSTONE, and clearly a technology that is up and coming for all campers!

RE: Jensen In-Command

I'm looking for thoughts and reviews on the Jensen In-Command system and seem to come up empty on all of the sites I've tried. I'm pretty sure it's brand new (which is why I'm nervous) but at least it isn't from Lippert. I'm. It saying Jensen is much better, but, did I mention they aren't Lippert? Anyways, if someone has a new RV, or even has had the opportunity to poke around with it for a bit, and would share some thought and insights I'd appreciate it. Hmm.. Did you read your own thread in IRV2 forum? Form the several responses in that thread it looks like a half baked product not ready for prime time from a brand name that has no "quality" left in it.. To me, why bother? A RV has such a small footprint and you can pretty much touch each wall fully stretched out. Sometimes there is no real advantage to having gadgets just to be able to say you have gadgets.. Old fashioned manual wall switches rarely fail, do not need rebooted nor do they need Wifi, Internet, DCs, CPUs, tablets, OSs or firmware updates and are not subject to virus's, malware, adware ect.. Keep in mind, when it fails, it fails and when the manufacturer decides to dump it or they get bought out, ALL the parts supporting that system go into the abyss.. Save your money or spend it on something really nice like a 70" big screen TV to hang on the outside of your RV..

RE: Replacing awful Jensen with a (Ford) nav radio ?

I bought a Vantec Bluetooth Audio receiver. It receives audio from a Bluetooth transmitter (phone or tablet) and converts it to analog audio. I connected it to AUX 3 using the included 1/8" stereo cable. It works but the audio quality is much inferior to a direct connection between the phone and the Jensen itself and if you power it via the included USB cable, it generates an annoying amount of background noise. Thus far the best way to play MP3s is to load them onto the memory card in my phone and connect the phone directly to the Jensen with a 1/8" stereo cable. It isn't sexy, but it is functional. I'd like to have it work wirelessly, so I can have my phone with me around the trailer. I may try another Bluetooth receiver, one that supports APTX. Another thing that bugs me about the 970 is that you can't use the USB port for charging. As soon as you plug a USB device into it, even with a charging only USB cable, the radio switches to USB play mode. There is no way to use the radio, CD or Aux function when a charging device is plugged into the USB port.

RE: Replacing awful Jensen with a (Ford) nav radio ?

I called Jensen and discussed my issues with the 970. 1) The tech blamed the issue of reception compared to a vehicle on the lack of a ground plane under the radio antenna compared to a vehicle. Good point ! I might put a ground plane under my antenna. 2) The tech acknowledged the cumbersome tuning. He didn't have any solution for it, no software update and said that the sister radios (968, 975) all tune the same.

RE: Replacing awful Jensen with a (Ford) nav radio ?

I've never had an aftermarket tuner work as well as an OEM tuner. I spent a lot of time on the road over the past 8 years in very rural areas in Superduties and Impalas. I had Pioneer and Kenwood radios in some of these vehicles and none of them would receive distant radio stations as well as the OEM units. Not even close. I've got a Kenwood XCD998 sitting on the shelf. I should install it and see if it works any better than the Jensen. It isn't very user friendly for my family to use. Well, then you are the odd one out.. Had lots of OEM radios and so far none are able to hold a candle to a better quality after amrket.. Now you might notice, I do not lump "Jensen" in the better quality bin.. Pioneers claim to fame is the "super tuner", I never tried them but from most reviews over the years folks HAVE noted that they are an improvement over OEM. For the past 30 yrs I have used Clarions, only have had one that I didn't like how the tuner blended the stereo to mono audio under weak signal situations (very aggressive change that is annoying). Pretty much all the stations I listen to are 50-60 miles away, lots of hilly area with a lot of tall trees.. The station I like the most is a low power station with about 4Kw ERP and it is about 55 miles from my area. That station is between two 45Kw stations and a tuner that has poor selectivity is not able to hold the station I like (picket fencing).. The Ford OEM radios were not able to pick up the station I like unless I was on the top of a hill, then it would fade out or switch (picket fencing) to the adjacent station. Keep in mind, what you pick up is also a function of how good of an antenna you have.. If you have the typical RV nubby antenna, you are not going to find much satisfaction in any radio.. Any antenna shorter than 3ft mast is going to perform poorly. I am also a bit puzzled as to why you would want a navigation radio in a 5vr.. Not like you are going to be able to use the nav part while driving unless you are going to have your copilot ride in the 5vr.. :E and relay the info to you in the vehicle..

RE: Replacing awful Jensen with a (Ford) nav radio ?

I have the Jensen AWM975 "radio" in our 5er. It has terrible reception. It is cumbersome to tune. It doesn't play USB sticks very well. Has anyone replaced their unit with a factory OEM truck radio ? Say a Ford head unit ? Will they work as stand alone units ? It "depends". Older Ford OEM radios where "stand alone" to a point, you would need to find a wire harness plug in for it. BUT, newer Ford OEM radios (2011 and up) depend on the vehicles "Can Bus" digital communications data bus provided by the vehicle for some functions to work. Additionally if I remember correctly USB port is separate from the radio on some models and may only be available with the MS "Sync" module which also uses the Canbus to feed the radio unit.. Personally, why shoot so low? Vehicle OEM radios are only a slight cut above RV units and replacing the OEM with a aftermarket radio is the very first "mod" I do with my vehicles.. My suggestion is to take a look at AFTERMARKET car stereos, they are a vast improvement over OEMs and are very easy to integrate into a RV.. You cannot go wrong with Pioneer, JVC, Kenwood or Clarion for aftermarket stereos. Many are equipped with USB ports now days and often can have BlueTooth, HD radio, Sat radio, navigation or DVD features.. All at a decent price with decent quality (although navigation typically comes with the upper higher priced models). CRUTCHFIELD is a great place to start looking and comparing but I do find that they tend to be rather expensive. I often find a model number of what I like then search Amazon for reviews and pricing.. Often end up buying through Amazon. Personally I would recommend a separate GPS unit for navigation, sometimes a "multi-function" device makes some compromises and navigation is only as good as the map and update support..

RE: Possible to daisy chain bluetooth speakers on auto-stereo?

yes, I am certainly leaning in the directions of the jbl's several nice ones will do the trick (about 5 separate models) seems like they're the only outta-the-box solution for multiple speakers that can process the signal with no lag, coming off the jensen's b.tooth signal we're doing this more for the audio..we're not big tv watchers thanks to all for the input cheers Bob Are you sure you can BT from the Jensen to the speakers? I thought the Jensen unit only took BT input, not send out BT signal. Maybe I'm wrong? I always use my phone because the Jensen is a POS. Btw the flip 3 sounds so much better then the factory speakers. They aren't "head banging" loud, but plenty loud enough to annoy the neighbors at the campground.

RE: Possible to daisy chain bluetooth speakers on auto-stereo?

I have a Jensen unit in our TT. I cannot BT from my phone to the Jensen while using another seperate BT speaker. Like yours, our factory speakers stink. But I was messing around one day seeing if I could get it to work. You can only do one at a time. BUT, some JBL BT speakers can use multiple speakers of of the same source. I have a JBL flip 3 and with a free app from JBL you can connect multiple (3 maybe) JBL flip 3 speakers off the same source and all play at same time and in sync. Otherwise I have tried any of the BT splitters that others have posted. The factory stereo is bad enough where I don't use it at all. But we just got the camper this year and I haven't made any improvements to it yet. I have to get better reception from the antenna and I will be replacing all the garbage speakers.

RE: Possible to daisy chain bluetooth speakers on auto-stereo?

based on what you are saying ? you will need a BT enable receiver/amplifier connected to the speakers to drive them, unless you are talking about something that has the amplifier and BT built in. in which case you need a BT transmitter to send the signal from the jensen to the speaker system it sounds like you are talking about a 'wireless' speaker system and the transmitter has to be connected to the aux ? output of the stereo IDk if you can mute the speakers using the volume control and still have a useable output signal,

RE: Possible to daisy chain bluetooth speakers on auto-stereo?

i should have asked what do you mean by more than one speaker ? your jensen stereo has multiple speakers BT will send a 2ch streo audio to your Jensen stereo except for these little battery powered BT speakers which are all in one BT sends signals to the bt reciver whichs gives it to the Ampilfier in the device you don't normally send signals to indivual speakers with the exception mentioned above

Possible to daisy chain bluetooth speakers on auto-stereo?

our tt came with a Jensen car audio type stereo, which is bluetooth capable I have never had a reason to use bluetooth, knowingly.., so I am wondering if one is able to daisy-chain more than 1 speaker on it? Is this possible at all using bluetooth from a laptop (win7)? we thought we should find out before buying (a novel concept in our experience!) Many thanks in advance for the kind help we have been getting from the folks who frequent this site as well as the staff. All the best cheers
