Hi, we just bought a new 2012 Zinger 26BH. We decided not to purchase the TVpackagedirectly fromCrossroads but rather buy our own 32 inch TV and install it ourselves (much cheaper). We're wondering if anyone has suggestions as to what model/brand TVworks best in the Zinger trailerswith thesurround sound system and which mounts the nicest (flush)on the mounting bracket. Our second question is: we heard from some that if you do not order the TV package directly from Crossroads then the radio/CD player does not include a DVD player with the system - can anyone confirm this?

We didn't buy the TV package from Crossroads and only have an AM/FM/CD player. No DVD.

We bought a 32" Hisense LCD TV from HHGregg (an electronics store). It fit with little to spare. The mount was bought from www.monoprice.com which has the best prices around on everything like cables, mounts, etc. This is the mount I bought for the TV. Seems to work well....

Hello Daystrom,

Thank you for replying. Just wondering what you had to do for a DVD player, just go without or install a secondary device that plays DVD's? Also, because you didn't order the TV package, did your trailer still come with surround sound (indoors) and outdoor speakers?

Thanks again!

I bought a dvd player from kmart for $29. Tiny little thing. Plays movies perfectly

Just bought a tv for the house bedroom. After getting it all mounted i discovered there was a dvd player built in.. What i nice prize being now i can lay in bed and watch movies. Sweet. There would be no way for my tv in my camper to have dvd on the side. Fits snugly in the cubby hole. No room for dvd access on the side of it.

I had an old cheap DVD player that I put in the cabinet above the TV. Wish those cabinets were a bit deeper, everything has to sit upright in there!

I have speakers inside and outside but only for the stereo. I suppose I could hook the DVD into the aux in jack and pipe the DVD through the overhead speakers.

We normally don't use the DVD all that much. I bring along a DirecTV dish and use it more.

Hey Congratulations on the new TT! We just picked up our 26 BH yesterday and we are also looking at installing a tv.

Bought a 32qb zinger and the cable tv wiring is cut in places. I hooked up cable to the outside coaxial jack but nothing inside works. Is there a coaxial wiring diagram somewhere so I can trace the coaxial wiring?

Not that I know of. Check the connecters on the ends of the coax, many have found the fault right there.

Old Farmer is correct. I had the same problem in my first SK. Had to redo all the ends on the coax cables. Do not use the twist on, crimped are the best.

Hello daystrom, we just pruchased a 2014 Zinger 26 BL and did not get the TV package. After reading your post we went with the same 32 inch TV that you purchased. My question for you is about the mount. The link you posted to Mono Price, is that the same mount that you used? I clicked on it and it is designed for a smaller TV but the the weight it can handle will support this TV. We're looking for a little help here in which one to get, we take delivery on 4/18/13 and campground opens up 4/26/13.TksEdited by: lonster3
