RE: Jensen JWM990 Theater-Style Wallmount Stereo

Buy a REAL brand name.. in car stereos names like Pioneer, Kenwood, JVC, Clarion, Sony come to mind.. You had me until you mentioned Sony... Point was EVEN a Sony would be better than a Jensen.. :B

RE: Jensen JWM990 Theater-Style Wallmount Stereo

Anyone add this into their rig or have a newer rig with this system installed? I was thinking about adding (replacing our existing radio) this to our rig, but at ~$500 it is an update that needs to be sure we want and know that it is a good system. Our current radio is a piece of turd and doesn't work well at all. I have done some reading the trade rags and it seems to get some decent reviews. Thanks Specs Sales Page Replace a junk with another junker :h Jensen brand name anything is garbage (albeit EXPENSIVE garbage). Buy a REAL brand name.. in car stereos names like Pioneer, Kenwood, JVC, Clarion, Sony come to mind.. You can get any of those brands in car stereos with DVD player built in.. YES, I realize car stereos do not offer SURROUND sound.. But really, you are in a RV not a home theater.. A lot of the "surround" noise will be placed too close to you since speaker placement for CORRECT timing is less than optimal in a RV. However pretty much any car stereo of any of those brands WILL offer SUBWOOFER OUTPUTS which you simply add an amplifier and subwoofer.. The subwoofer is what most folks are looking for and is easy to hook up with a car stereo now days. If you really must have surround sound then buy a NAME BRAND HOME Theater system which has built in DVD plus amps and runs from 120V AC. To use with no shore power you simply use an inverter...

RE: Jensen JWM990 Theater-Style Wallmount Stereo

Personally I would go with a head unit designed for a car. Much better quality and far less expensive. I put a Blaupunkt head unit in my old trailer and I loved it, but that was back before MP3s, etc. When my current Jensen dies it's getting replaced with a "real" head unit that has DVD and MP3 capability.

RE: Looking for suggestions on new DVD AM/FM stereo

I just went through what you are due to a mis wired pedestal. When I went to replace the Home theater in a box system I found out Best Buy and 3 outher electronic stores did not have one that fit in my cabinet. I settled on a Jensen DV2011 that I found on Amazon. Since then Jensen has come out with a JWM990 that would have fit. I priced it out through Forest River. They wanted over $900.00 Priced it direct with ASA Electronics. They wanted over $450.00. C.B.

Looking for suggestions on new DVD AM/FM stereo

This past weekend a lightning storm took out our RCA all in one AM/FM CD DVD player in our 5th. It worked very well up to that point, so I may just try and replace it with the same. (It is a regular electronics piece, NOT something like a Jensen that fits into a particular spot) But I was wondering if anyone has any upgrade ideas. Another combination system would be great, especially if there is one with bluray. It would need to fit into a space about 6 inches by 18 inches. It would need to have surround sound and HDMI output.

RE: Good 12v dc TV

Thanks for all of the ideas. I know in the past I had a Sharp TV and the output of the brick was 12VDC but I was never brave enough to cut the cord and wire it to the 12V directly. Also at that time everybody was saying not to do it. I guess it is off to Best Buy to buy 2 new TVs. Just what I wanted to do after buying a new MH that listed for over $120,000, is go out and buy new TVs for it. The front one was standard but the rear one was over $400 option. How do they charge so much for a 22” HDTV. Why don’t they just leave them out and let us buy our own. Put the wiring in for them and let us install ones to our liking. It seems that they all have a love affair with Jensen garbage (in my opinion). Just like the stereo units they put in them, again they are Jensen’s, supposedly they are built to stand the up to driving down the road. I don’t believe this as I have used Sharp TVs for years and they worked just fine and I took them out and used them in the house. In fact my wife is still using a Sharp in her sewing room and this TV was bought over 13 years ago and traveled many mile in the back of a 5th wheel and never had one trouble and it has a great viewing width. Why do the manufactures put such garbage in the units? I guess I’ll answer that myself, because we buy it with this garbage. I have to take the MH into a dealer to get the power skylight fixed. It sounds like the gears are stripped. It worked on the walk through on Wednesday morning and didn’t on Thursday evening. Gives me great confidence that it is going to work for years. I think once it is fixed I’ll just leave it closed and never use it. When I’m in the dealer with this problem I’m going to complain about the TVs. I know it won’t do any good but it will let me vent a little. Ok enough of the complaining, thanks for the ideas.

Good 12v dc TV

Does anyone have a recommendation for a good 12v DC TV. I bought a new MH and it has 2 Jensen 12v in it and they are about the sorriest excuse for a HDTV that I have every seen. If you are not sitting directly in front of the TV you can hardly see anything but just some black and a little color. If you stand up you can't see it either, like I say you have to be straight in front of it. I had a Jensen in my past RV and we could view it from almost any angle. The TV in the bedroom is just ok if on one side of the bed but just on the other side you can't even see it. I tried looking at it receiving over the air at first and thought it was just bad so put a DVD in the player and it was just as bad. The front one is a 24" and the rear one is 22" Thanks.

RE: Jensen awm975

If you Jensen lasted longer than ours (a couple of months) before you started having problems with it then you had had better luck than we did. I have come to believe that the basic Jensen systems that they put in RV's are complete junk... Sorry I didn't help with your question...just commenting on my experience.

Jensen awm975

My Jensen will only play two tracks on a cd then shut off. I have reset the unit and called Jensen. They don't have clue. Of course there is only a one year warranty. Any one have any ideas? dvd will play and radio works fine. Thanks

RE: anyone tried wireless HDMI

Why don't you try and run the HDMI cable and loomex through the ceiling? I've been able to run co-ax, low voltage and 120 volt in the ceiling from one end of our TT to the other without great difficulty. If you take down speakers, AC and skylight bezels, AC grilles and lights, you can fish cable from one access hole to the next access hole until you get where you need to be. If you are stuck part way, you can go up and down inside cabinets and horizontally as well. Upper wall cabinets usually have a 1-1.5" space on the bottom and you can run cables and wiring in there. You can also cut a small hole on the ceiling inside a cabinet to get access. In 3 TTs now, I haven't been stuck in running wiring through the ceiling to where I wanted it. If you have a go at it, you'll be surprised at what you can do. Our 2014 KZ TT came with a nice 32" TV that can accept component, composite and HDMI inputs. But the Jensen radio/DVD player only has a composite output. Why do they do this? I will upgrading to HDMI too but will have to ditch the Jensen. BTW, I just noticed you are in Abbotsford, just down the street from us in Langley. If I can help you at all, send me a PM.

RE: T/V"s

I put an Insignia brand from bestbuy in mine. It's not sold as a 12v tv but it has an external power supply that converts ac to 12v dc for the tv. I then got a 12v cable from Radio shack for the tv. The 19" tv was less than $100 CDN. My crappy jensen radio unit is also a dvd player and an output runs over to the tv. So far it's working quite well. We don't use it a lot, usually just watch a bit of something right before bed.

RE: Concertone problems

Well, thought I would post back...problem solved on my Concertone ZX50. It is now in a box in my shed, resting. I replaced it with a Jensen that I ordered from Amazon.com. I had to make a slight modification on my Puma 25RS mounting area. I then tagged my wires and slowly changed them out. The Jensen has speaker selection A, B and A & B. My Concertone had A, B, and C for the outside speaker. I had to parallal my outside speaker with my A speaker for an 8 ohm output. Now, I when I select A, my speaker in the couch area and outside works..B is for the bedroom area. A & B select works all. I called the Jensen Tech Reps on it. Their connector for Concertone to Jensen would not have helped me one bit because of the speaker configuration.

RE: flatscreens

Does the Jensen sold at Camping World anything special, or can I run any flatscreen? Peter I believe that Jensen is way over priced. You might want to look at Costco. Probably a third of the price plus a full two year warranty. It is hard to beat that. Jim

RE: flatscreens

Hi, I don't know why, but the Vizio E series seems to use low watts. I can run my dtv HD and 39" vizio just under 7 amps. It seems to take alot less power than a Samsung even though I like them.I don't know why anyone would want to by any television or Jensen tv from camping world. To many other places to buy cheaper and better quality. Just my 2 cents, nothing more...

RE: flatscreens

The Jensen and Polaroid and Skyworth are junk sets made in China and bottom tier units. They just put their brand on electronics made by others. Better to get a 110AC top tier LED LCD and use a small inverter. We went through a Polaroid, Jensen, and Skyworth in the course of 3 years. We have 4 years on a Toshiba TV that continues to work perfectly.

RE: flatscreens

Jensen is considered very low-end merchandise. Vizio, LG, Samsung, etc, will have what you want.

RE: flatscreens

Does the Jensen sold at Camping World anything special, or can I run any flatscreen? Peter The only thing special about it is probably the price. It is too high. x2 Go to Amazon or Walmart. Vizio, Samsung or Panasonic. Plus, look at what features you want. I purchase many items from B&H to avoid the 7% NJ sales tax from Amazon, Walmart etc . B&H TVs

RE: flatscreens

As far as I know the only "certifying agency" is Jensen. Wouldn't be my go to brand. Our new rig came with three flat screens. Two Samsungs and one Insignia (Best Buys brand). In previous rig I used a Vizio and replaced it with a JVC when the remote control sensor failed. Don't know why the sensor failed but don't think it was because of RV use. Buy what will work for you at the best price you can find. Mounts are fairly standard.

RE: flatscreens

Jensen makes a big deal about their TVs being "certified" for RVs. But even if it is true, at the prices they charge you could essentially buy a cheaper TV and throw it out if it goes bad and replace it. The chances are it won't go bad and you'll have saved yourself lots of money.
