UA Bedroom Speaker & TV Popping

On our 2002 Ultimate Advantage, we keep hearing a popping noise, almost like feedback, in the bedroom TV and the speakers over the bed. This happens only when the TV is turned off, and immediately stops when we turn the TV on. Sometimes it happnes only a few times, other times (like last night) it went on all night long. Makes it very hard to sleep. Any ideas on how to fix this?

Nick, I don't have the problem you are experiencing in the bedroom. But I did have the problem in the front of the coach with the main TV. The band pass/noise filter Winnebago had provided had come loose from the speaker wires.

I would suggest the same thing for your TV in the bedroom.

Nick,
I have had the same problem coming thru my surround sound system. Only fix (temporary) is to turn off the surround system when I'm not using it. In the Meridian that's done by turning off the radio, that also controls the surround sound amp.

Those UA's are great coaches.

I, too, have the popping noise in the front coach speakers, almost like the ticking of a clock in terms of frequency. It happens only when the speakers are set to radio and the dash radio is off. I am wondering if a band/pass filter is needed for the dash radio as well.

LK23,

I have the same issue. I found the cure was in the power selector switch that sets the radio power to engine or coach. In the engine position, the noise is removed.

I agree with LK23 I fix mine (the front speakers) the same way. But you asked about the Bedroom speakers. TV's are not generally ever turned off if this was the case your remote would not work. What you are hearing is feed back through your speakers. Both my front and rear TV's burned out the transformers no doubt due to low voltage with the invertor on (with little demand the inverter only produces 90V instead of the 110/120. When I took the TV out the wirwes to the speakers were hardwired to the TV speaker which as I beleive are actually on even in the off position.

No doubt your transformer is on it's way out. I found a new magnovox TV for 90 bucks that slipped right in, $125 to replace the front transformer

Where is this transformer you're speaking of, Steve?
