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.

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.

RE: Concertone problems

I have been reading through the posts trying to decide: My Concertone ZX50 has just about bit the dust. It is acting ready crazy...one time the radio will work..then not..plus my CD player has quit. I am looking for a good inexpensive replacement. I have seen the: JENSEN AWM910 AM/FM/CD Wallmount Stereo. My mounting area is about 7 1/4 by 7 inches. This is mounted in a Puma 25RS near the couch. Any suggestions? Any will be appreciated....

RE: flatscreens

Does the Jensen sold at Camping World anything special, or can I run any flatscreen? Peter The only thing special about the Jensen at CW is the price... It is generally a bit higher than the identical TV somewhere else. I have 3 flat screens here, I will give you the standards by which they were chosen. One is a off brand, Sansui or somthing like that, Cheapest thing Wal*mart had in the size I wanted.. Oldest of my flat screens works great.. One is a Samsung, this one has a 14 volt power brick and is really a good choioce for RV use because of it. Should work on 12 volts just vine and won't mine 15 either. Again it was a Wal*Mart special, floor display they lost the remote.. I already had a remote so no problem. Finally a Dynex, got it at a pawn shop. My tape measure made the choice, it is EXACTLY the width of the unit it replaced.

RE: flatscreens

Check the specs. Some Jensens have very wide viewing angles compared to home TVs. Which is sometimes necessary in an RV. But if you do not need the viewing angle I would get anything else. The Jensen remote and or TV are terrible on all 3 I have.

Replacing concertone unit and television

I asked this over on the FR forum but I know this site gets more eyes. We have a 2008 Rockwood 8313SS. The concertone unit has been replaced once already. The DVD is no longer working so we connect a separate DVD player to watch DVD's. The radio is about the only thing that works. We use cable tv when campground has it if not we bring Direct TV which we connect and play through the trailer speakers. We would like to change out the television with a flat screen. Is this possible? Would we lose the ability to play the tv sound through the speakers? Might not be a big issue if so cause the new tv might have better sound. What other issues might we have by doing this? We also might even look into replacing the concertone with something. I heard Jensen is a good fit. Just looking for our options. Thanks on advance for any help

RE: TV Mount - Moving from inside to outside

I think I found the answer. http://www.jensenrvdirect.com/products/lcd-tvs/lcd-tv-mounts.html You have to buy two of the wall mount back plates and then whichever tv mount works for your tv. Not the exact thing the Roo had but works just like it. Same ones I linked you to in an earlier post. Jensen get's top dollar. Find the model you want and then Google the part number (like MAF30) and you can get the same thing in an RCA brand for 1/3 less. Jensen clones

RE: TV Mount - Moving from inside to outside

Mine are mounted with a Jensen MAF30 mount and uses these "back plates" that you can mount in several locations. back plates

RE: question on playing tv through stereo speakers

What's the impedance of the Jensen AUX input? I don't know anything about these? Are these Jensen's just audio, or does it have a built-in DVD player for instance? If so, that AUX could be wired for a split video/audio input via mini jack? That's easily corrected via adapter, but you still will have an impedance issue with headphone level output, and line level input and voltage, without using a preamp of some type.

RE: question on playing tv through stereo speakers

It would be helpful if you tell us what model LCD TV and Jensen you have? First, make sure the output is working on the TV? Connect a pair of headphones and check. In any case, the most obvious question is that are you selecting the correct input source on the Jensen? But the core issue is likely that the Jensen wants a line-level input, while the output on the TV is a much lower headphone level impedance. Also, the headphone voltage level is lower. They do make wireless Bluetooth adapters for headphones out(transmitter) to stereo line-in(receiver). But remember you'll need both transmitter/receiver. This would also allow you to play music from a tablet or smartphone w/Bluetooth through your Jensen.

RE: question on playing tv through stereo speakers

Any suggestions would be welcomed. :hDo you have to set (press a button, flip a switch) on the Jensen unit to Aux input?
