Home Theater Receiver Replacement w/ surround Speakers

Question for the masses... After almost 7 years, the home theater receiver / DVD player in my 5th wheel toy hauler is going up the ghost... and since I'm not seeing many (if any?) good options for replacing it, I'm looking for help. It is a Sony BDV-N7200 Blu-Ray DVD player with a built-in amp to power 5 speakers & a sub-woofer. But in the ever-changing world of electronics, its no longer being produced, and I've not been able to find any surplus still available. In an ideal world, I could just run down to Best Buy, or log on the Crutchfield.com and buy a standard household model of my choice... but, of course, I don't have room for a full-size unit in my rig. In fact, it has to fit into a space only 19" wide, by 8" high, and here's the big one... only 9" deep. I've done a cursory internet search for like-type models from others like Kenwood and Samsung... but I'm not seeing anything that would work. Not only are the units too large, but it seems surround speakers have gone out of style too, and given way to simple sound bars. So that brings me to the question, which is kind of a 2-parter: 1) What are they installing in new rigs these days? Do they still come with surround speaker systems, or have they all gone to the sound bar? 2) What brand & model number audio/video receivers are being installed in today's RV units? I figure if I can get some of you folks who've bought a rig within the last few years to supply me with the brand & model number of your units, then they're probably still available for sale, and I can look up to specs to see it they'll work for me. Thanks in advance... I look forward to reading your replies.

RE: What is an RV Resort??

As others have said... the term "resort" is vague at best. However, as a full-timer for the past 5 years, I have seen a few that meet the criteria. One if them is a place I stay every other winter or so... huge property with almost 3000 sites, yet none of them are small. The place has its own 18-hole par-3 golf course, clubhouse, and pro shop... no less than 5 different pool areas with jacuzzis & bath houses... 8 tennis lighted tennis courts, a shuffleboard & horseshoe complex, lawn bowling complex with its own clubhouse, softball field, 12 different dog park areas (including an AKC dog agility park), 32 pickle ball courts (24 of them lit), library, billiards room, various arts & crafts rooms & classes, woodworking shop, car-wash area, a fully equipped fitness & workout facility (machines & free weights) with various aerobics classes, etc, etc, etc. And while it's not cheap, it does at least measure up to what I'd classify as a resort.

Diesel Fuel on US-50??? (Loneliest Highway in America)

Hi folks... question for those who may know: Planning to depart the Reno area late next week, and wanted to detour off the interstate to tow my 5th wheel east across the part of US-50 known as the Loneliest Highway in America. But... I can't seem to find any recent info about diesel fuel availability east of the NAS Fallon area to Ely, NV. Google Maps says it's approximately 260 miles between those 2 areas... and with the mountainous terrain & some high passes to climb, I don't think I can make it that far with my F-450 dually pulling a heavy 5th wheel toy hauler. In that type of terrain, I usually only plan for getting about 6-mpg... and with a 36-gal fuel tank, I'm gonna be gettin real nervous after about 200 miles. So I'm wondering if anyone has any KNOWN diesel fuel locations? Google does show 2 Chevon gas stations along the route... one in Austin, and another in Eureka... but the Chevron website doesn't show them having diesel available, so I'm guessing they're not options. And yeah, I know I could buy a couple of 5-gal diesel fuel cans... but I really don't wanna resort to that when I can just stay on I-80 if I need to, and not worry about it Input appreciated... Thanks.
