I've never gotten the wrong parts and they are more than willing to look up what I need and check alternatives.

Couldn't be happier with them.
Totally agree!

Knowing WHAT is having these problems would help allot. Have you looked at battery voltage? What about the primary fuse off the battery into the RV?

The Insignia TVs will not allow you to switch to an HDMI input until there is a signal on it, so you might try making sure your Apple TV is on and then hit Input on the Insignia TV and see if you can switch to it.

The only way you can get Apple TV on the outside or bedroom TVs will be to connect a HDMI cable to each one and put the Apple TV there when needed. There is no HDMI cable from the front cabinet compartment to either the bedroom or outside TVs. Hopefully Winnebago will get a clue that Composite Video and Component Video are becoming obsolete and start running all HDMI cables in 2017 models, and upgrade to a head unit in the dash with HDMI out. ( HINT - HINT TO WINNEBAGO ) The picture quality of the Pioneer Composite Video 480i signal to the front 46" TV is just a joke. I put in my own Blu-Ray DVD player in the overhead compartment so I could run it HDMI 1080i or 1080p to the TV.

So I think I found the problem. The hdmi is disconnected from the back of the main tv. How did you get that tv off the wall? Is there an easy release somewhere that I'm missing?

Lighted Exterior Assist Handle

Here's a good thread on changing the LED light in the exterior assist handle or installing an LED light in a handle that never had one.

Leather Steering Wheel Skin

Here's a mod to dress up that plain black steering wheel. It's all hand-laced so it takes a bit of time and effort but really turns out nice.

I always wondered if this handle was supposed to light up or not and if not why was it made to look like it should. Good job, may have to make this a project some day.

If you get on a step ladder you will see a metal plate with screws across it at the top of the TV that prevents the TV from being lifted up. Once that plate is off TV can be lifted up and off the wall bracket. When you put the plate back be careful they strip very easily, chances are at least 1 is already stripped before you even work with it.

GET HELP THE TV IS HEAVY AND THE CABLES ARE NOT LONG ENOUGH TO SET THE TV ON THE FLOOR WITHOUT DISCONNECTING SOME CABLES FIRST.

If I recall the HDMI cable from the overhead compartment should be plugged into HDMI 1 on the left side of the TV. On my 27N there is a metal retention bracket that goes over the end of the cable and is taped to TV case with super sticky tape to keep it from coming off.

Oak console with cup holders to replace the useless "beveraqe tray". Much to my chagrin, the 'Sunstar logo is not centered on the dog house. The radio is closer to being centered, but still not quite.
The front part of the lid is held on with magnets and lifts off, providing a storage space inside.

Adding much needed hose storage to 32T

I noticed that there was a sizable unused area ahead of the utility side cabinet on my 32T. The waste and fill hoses had very little area in the bin for storage. So I drew up plans for a galvanized add on storage cabinet sent it to a sheet metal shop and used a cut off wheel in a 4 1/2 grinder to make an opening for the new cabinet. I drilled holes in the cabinet for drainage front and back and used some of the space to add an inlet water filter.
