TV/Radio speakers wiring

2005 Winn. 35U Adventurer
Installed OH LED TV and now trying to ID and trace wiring from TV & dash radio to the satellite speakers. Trying to decipher the Winni. wiring diagrams an exercise in frustration!
There is a rocker switch that switches sat. speakers between radio and TV.
I am trying to trace the wiring by color code, gauge, or.........
Would be convenient if Winn. had just a basic sound system wiring diagram!
Anyone preceded me in this exercise their insight would be appreciated.

Dang we did the same thing removed the old monster tv and replaced with a flat screen, cant figure out how to hook up the dash radio and surround sound speakers They worked great before I monkeyed with the hook ups. Will be watching this thread

On thing of note is the TV needs to have the ability to vary its output level. The first TV we got would not do this so when you swtiched the radio to TV it was full volume. You need to go into audio settings and set output to variable.

The speakers do not go directly to the Television. There is an amplifier that is somewhere in your dash that takes the output of your TV speakers. THe output of your tv speakers goes through an isolator transformer (usually right behind the TV and wrapped with electrical tape) and then into the amplifier. The satellite speakers are then fed from the amplifier.

I also replaced the old monster Sony with a nice LED TV. I made sure I purchased a tv that had a variable audio output. I took the variable audio out of the tv, removed the isolation transformer and patched through at that point.

Seems to work just fine. I hope this helps.

TV/Radio speakers

Thanx to Jerry &Kb2ztx for the response to my issue. Sorry to be so long acknowledging your input, but have been under the weather a number of days.

Jerry, one clarification: "Take the variable audio output out of the TV, removed the isolation transformer & patched thru'.........."
Did you mean removal of the VAO or that the TV's VAO is then the volume control for the sat speakers?
And, "removed the IT & patched...", meaning that the IT is bypassed (& no longer part of the circuitry)?
Look forward to your feedback.

I removed the isolation transformer.

Yes, and then the TV VAO is the control for the sat speakers while watching TV
