Can't hear TV in bedroom.

Hi all!
Thanks to everyones great input we had a successful first camping trip in our new Zinger last weekend. Everything went off without a hitch. We had no problems with hot water, electric, stove a/c and heat. There is one thing that has us scratching our heads. We can't hear the tv in the bedroom??!! It is one of those that swivel between rooms. We have the option to hear it in the main cabin, the outside speaks and both, but nothing will let us bypass the speakers and let us watch it normally when were in the bedroom. Any thoughts on this?

I have an ST32BH and you can not hear the TV from the bedroom. Dumbest thing ever. When your just watching TV it's ok because you crank up the TV speakers, but when watching a movie you end up blasting the roof speakers. Not good when the kids are sleeping. By the way always check to make sure the outside speakers are off. One night we were watching a movie and forgot that earlier we were listening to music outside. So for a good 15 min the entire camp ground was listening to National Lampoons Vegas Vacation.

Could be a setting on your tv menu in audio section that may help. You should be able to turn off all of the stereo/DVD speakers in the ceiling and just listen to audio through the tv speakers. Not sure of the audio video in your unit specifically so I can't be of much help other than this.

You can. You have to turn off both the A & B speakers then turn the volume on the unit up to around 30. Then turn the volume on the TV up and the sound will come out of the TV speakers.

Ditto on this, took us a while to figure that out but it works. The higher you turn up the Jensen unit volume the better the volume out of the TV (or the better the TV volume control works). Goofy set up.

Just remember to turn down the volume on the Jensen unit when you power down. If not when you turn on the speakers, look out.

On my 2013 ST with the Jensen had a video out runing to the TV video in. The Jensen only had an audio out that they had connected to the TV audio out by mistake I assume. Switched the cables to the TV audio in and then CDs could play through the TV speakers

Add 2 speakers to the bedroom side and hook them up to "C" and use 'c' and turn off 'a and 'b'.
