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.

RE: King Awning Light w/ Bluetooth Speaker

The front of the Jensen is input only. You'll have to use the rear output and solder/crimp/etc to a BT transmitter. Check out the owners manual.

RE: King Awning Light w/ Bluetooth Speaker

It looks like you could connect something like this BT transmitter to the output on the back on the Jensen. Do you want to listen to AM/FM radio through the King speaker? That's exactly what I've wanted to do. It actually looks like it would plug in on front of Jensen radio unit. I'll have to look in to this further. I've got another option that my use same input jack.

RE: King Awning Light w/ Bluetooth Speaker

Okay, I bit the bullet and purchased one of these for our Seneca 37FS. Huge improvement on the light. Bluetooth is okay. I really wanted to broadcast our Jensen JRV215N from the dash outside. NOPE, that don't work. Seems after talking to the King Technical Support the Jensen JRV215N and the King Awning Light with Bluetooth Speaker are both Bluetooth Receivers and I cannot broadcast from the JRV215N to the King Awning Light with Bluetooth Speaker. The King Tech guy says the Bluetooth was for broadcasting music from my smart phone. The smart phone is also the only remote for controlling the different LED colors. Its a good unit and works well. I guess, I had to adjust my attitude on technology. All is well.

King Awning Light w/ Bluetooth Speaker

We have a Jensen JRV215N in our Seneca and I'm looking at the King Awning Light with Bluetooth Speaker and wondering if the Bluetooth of the JRV215N is compatable with the King speaker.

RE: Cable TV not working, Antenna working

Thanks for the tips. A few comments: Yes, this has worked before The TT is a 2013 model so the TV is digital Yes, the TV was set to Cable sritter, you may have hit on something. The TV is on a swivel. I'll take a look at the condition of that cable to see if it's now pretzel-shaped. Here's a photo of the Jensen antenna connection (I made an error and thought it said ANT, OFF, and CABLE, but the first setting is AIR). The fuse is good. http://i.imgur.com/DKzjdTcl.jpgI would keep looking for an antenna amplifier button. That is going to be your problem. That switch only selects the input source. The other Possibility is that your selector switch is bad. Unhook that connection and connect a coax cable from the cable connection directly to the cable that comes out of that selector switch. If it then works you know the problem lies between the connector on the outside of the RV and ends with that selector switch. I am still betting there is an amplifier in the line that is turned on. Look everywhere there are cables. They usually have a green or red LED.

Sorry, forgot to mention that the antenna is a Jensen omni-directional.

Jensen JRV212T Blank Screen

I removed the coach batteries to repaint the compartment and when I switched the battery switch back on my Jenson dash radio screen is blank. I can hear static in the speakers that can be raised and lower with the volume knob, and I was able to put in a CD and eject it(it would not play). The radio will not turn off by pushing the knob in. I have pushed the reset button several times and even held it for 30 seconds with no results. If the radio is bad how much trouble will it be to find a new radio that will fit in without butchering the dash? Not sure if removing the coach batteries caused this, I would not think it would be any different than flipping the disconnect switch. thanks Jeff

RE: 12VDC access. For new TV

This is in regards to my 2008 Keystone Sprinter 26BHS For this season, I'm upgrading our ancient TV. I also decided that I wanted to change to an AC/DC TV, to allow for using the TV when off grid (yes, I know this may be ridiculous to some, but I have kids;) ) The trailer is a typical master bedroom forward, with a shared wall that divides the bedroom from the main house. The TV is on a swivel, to allow it to be viewed from either the master bedroom or the rest of the trailer - so, it's mounted in a wall, and all the wiring comes up though/down through the wall (there is also a Jensen DVD stereo combo) The current (ancient) TV is AC only, and is powered via a 110 AC plug that is in a panel behind the TV. As far as I can tell, there is no 12VDC source in the panel. So.. my question (finally ;) )... is... where do I get 12VDC that I can use to wire a cigarette lighter plug , that I can plug the new AC/DC TV into? Where, in general, would I look, and are there any "rv secrets" I should know? I've only done electrical in houses/cars. Thanks! I would be tempted to tap into the power for the stereo.. BUT, keep in mind that the stereo circuit may have a light ga wire and rather low amperage fuse.. That may not play well with a TV if it draws more than 1A or 2A at 12V.. No matter how you cut it, you will have to attempt to "fish" wire through the wall if you want the wire to be hidden. In RVs this can be rather problematic due to rather thin walls and no real specific pattern to the wood studs in the wall. You can try a stud finder, but I found that in RVs the walls are so thin that even high quality stud finders get pretty confused. You might get lucky and be able to fish the wire from below the TV mount on the wall.. Worst comes to worst you can get wiremold surface mount wiring chase, use that on the back side of the shared wall. As far as getting 12V, I personally would run a new separate 12V circuit back to the fuse panel. Use a decent ga of wire to minimize voltage loss (14 ga -12Ga) and make sure you FUSE the new wire (max fuse selection is for protecting the wire so 14 ga no more than 15A and 12 ga no more than 20A). Alternately I would just opt for a REGULAR LCD TV which uses 120V and get a small low wattage inverter (300W typically plenty for all but the biggest LCD TVs). 120V TVs are dirt cheap, plentiful and easy to replace when they die.. Not all 120V TVs use external 12V supplies and typically the ones I have seen that do have a 12V supply are limited in size to 15"-19". Mount inverter near the batteries with big heavy wire for the 12V side, then run some 120V to the TV (might be able to figure out the circuit the current outlet is on and rewire it to the inverter).

RE: Battery Question ; time watching TV

Planning it out beforehand would provide a lot longer viewing time. The largest 12V HDTV would be the 32-inch Jensen, $ 417.55 new. An Optima or Lifetime or whoever's AGM battery would tolerate deep discharge and offer a lot of other advantages over an old-school lead acid as well. The 12V HDTV gets you away from inverters that waste a lot of power to convert, rather than a converter, which wastes a fraction of power vs. an inverter (i.e.; convert a 19V laptop to 12V). 32-inch Jensen HDTV Yep, TV's all run on DC. That brick in the cord converts AC to DC. If it's not in the cord it's in the TV itself.And he said up front he knows very little about electricity. Probably wouldn't be good to give him a handful of alligator clips and turn him loose..

RE: Can I make my television play back through stereo receiver?

OK. On the back of the TV (your model) you will have a Yellow/Red/White RCA output. Use just the Red/White Audio from that TV output and run the 2 wire RCA cable to the 2 wire RCA AUDIO INPUT of the Jensen AWM975 DVD player. Turn the TV speakers OFF, then turn on the Audio of the DVD player to the correct input. Doug

Can I make my television play back through stereo receiver?

I have a Jensen JE1911 television connected via HDMI to a Jensen AWM975 stereo. I've been trying to find a way to get the TV to play back sound through the stereo system speakers instead of relying on the crappy TV speakers. Since these components were installed as a unit at the factory, you'd think there would be a way to make them play nice together. Has anyone figured out how to do this?

RE: Lousy TV Tuner

It annoys me that it is nearly impossible to find any kind of sensitivity specs on televisions, and I do not believe that even CR tests that. Everyone is assumed to be hooked to cable/online. If Jensen and the companies that build "RV" tvs were smart, they would design a super sensitive tuner with great error correction, and push that.

RE: Hooking TV into built-in stereo

I actually did this just last week. I used a headphone miniplug to RCA adapter, then RCA couplers, then an RCA extension cable to go into the "Aux In" on my OEM Jensen radio. It is nothing like home quality, but it is 20 times better than the puny tv speakers.

RE: Over the air reception question

Oh come on guys, the RV salesman said it is an RV television without any moving parts and rugged enough to withstand the banging around in an RV. Surly he must know what he is talking about, he's an RV salesman. Actually.. That RV salesman is kind of rare for he has spoken the truth. Jensen does make a line of TVs that are marketed for RV use and that is exactly what Jensen says about them. and it is true. HOWEVER: The same (No moving parts (Save the push buttons which you do not need to push since you can use the ones on the remote) and the speaker coils.. Rugged enough to take bounching around in an RV, applies to dang near every other TV out there. INSIGNA: You do not know who made that box. That is the Best Buy House brand and I know at least SOME of their products are actually made by Lucky Goldstar (I seriously doubt all are) and of all the lucky Gold Star stuff I've ever been stuck with only one so far has made me happy..... and I"m not sure if it works right cause I know it has a common failure mode which I've not yet tested. Microwave #1 (OFFICE I did not buy it) Due to a design flaw caught fire Microwave #2 (Says Dometic on it) Turntable did not work, Modified by a compentent engineer (ME) and now works 100% but I used GE parts to do it. VCR (Zenith) Trashed and replaced first with a panasonic and then with a replayTV DVR (Working as I type) Digital TV converter (Insignia) I kept it from failing by being very careful till it wore out,< The Zenith (Identicl unit different paint job) has yet to fail But I know how to prevent it and the things I did for the Insignia were still in place when I swapped in the Zenith. Computer Monitors (Before L merged with G) I never owned but we sold in the store where I worked... We got most all of 'em back due to one part which only Goldstar used.. When the contract expiered the company who's name was on the cabinet went back to their old, reliable, supplier.
