2018 Sunstar LX 27N - Entertainment

Above the door entry to the motorhome, there is a lift up door that contains a set of control panels for the TV antenna, speaker systems and two removable panels for an entertainment device and a satellite antenna system.

After buying the motorhome and using it for a few months I am ready to add an entertainment system. I would like it to be an AM/FM stereo and also a DVD/Blueray USB device.

Looking for advice I have asked at La Mesa and even called Winnebago but so far no one seems to have a recommendation. Does anyone have an entertainment system installed and can you tell what make and model you have?

All comments and recommendations will be greatly appreciated.

My Adventurer came with one in that spot. It’s a LG with everything you mentioned but the radio including amplifiers for the coache’s built in surround speakers/subwoofer.

I’m not sure of the model but it looks like this one: LG Electronics BH5140S

Thank you for the response. It appears that one is designed for the home. I suspect it plugs into a power source located inside the flip-down entertainment cabinet. Can anyone confirm that there is a 110V AC outlet in there to plug into?

Yes, the one I linked to is designed for home use. On my Adventurer they've installed surround sound speakers in the ceiling, in some cabinets over the sofa and with a subwoofer in a cabinet in the kitchen that faces the living room. Then this using, running on 110v is in the overhead cabinet entertainment center.

I may be different in your RV. Mine has 110v plugs, satellite receiver hookups, etc. And the 110v power is on my inverter so it works even when not plugged into shore power.

Again, thank you for the response. My MH is at La Mesa for repair from road debris that I hit a few months ago. When I get it back I will un-cable to the hinged panel and open it all the way up and take some measurements and confirm I have a 110v AC outlet.

I installed a Sony DVD player in the left hand blank spot. Used a piece of foam to wedge it in place so it did not move. There is a 110v outlet on the wall towards the ceiling. Had to stand on my head to see it. There are also 2 HDMI cables up there that are labeled. HDMI 1 goes to the main tv and HDMI 2 is for the bedroom tv. Only odd thing is they hooked up the main tv to the HDMI 2 input so you have to select that one on the tv.

W6LMJ, drawings show two 110V outlets on the outside wall both fed from the (optional) inverter.

murphy55378 - I bought a 2013 Adventurer 37F about six months ago. It has a King Dome Satellite Antenna (9704) which is compatible with either DirecTV or Dish Network. In the entertainment equipment cabinet above the passenger's seat, is a 4x4 Matrix HDMI Switch Splitter and a Sony DVD player, a 75-ohm TV coaxial cable, and two HDMI Cables. We also have a Jack Digital HDTV Over-the-Air Antenna on the roof. I have been successful in getting Over-the-Air TV picture and sound on both the Lounge and Bedroom TVs.

At home, we subscribe to DirecTV and we have the Genie HD system with the HR44-500 HDDVR receiver. I took the HR44-500 to the RV, attached the 75-ohm coax ond one of the HDMI cables to the receiver and was able to get a DirecTV set-up screen on the Lounge but it did not download any DirecTV settings.

I have since learned that the HR44-500 HD receiver requires a SWM in the circuit. Since we don't have any extra boxes behind our home bedroom (main) TV, I went to the attic and discovered a DirecTV MSPLIT4R1-03 spliiter SWM 4-way and DirecTV Power Inserter Model PI21R3-16. From my research, and looking up at the HD antenna on my roof at home, it appears that I have the SWM LNB installed on the antenna.

Assuming that the King Dome satellite antenna does not have the SWM LNB installed, I'm assuming I have to buy a separate SWM to install between the antenna and the other components (identified above) in order to receive DirecTV programming.

Any ideas would be appreciated.
