Fleetwood Bounder 35K TV Sources ???

Can anyone tell me how all 4 TV's are wired into the 2016 and later Bounder 35K's? There's one TV over the front bunk, one midship, one in the bedroom, and one outside. Planning a purchase later this year and want to know my entertainment options. I do have directv I'll be moving over from our fifth wheel.

Thanks!

I have a 2019 Southwind 36P. It is wired using a HDMI over UTP Distribution switch. The dvd, two satellite receivers and an aux input are the devices that can be switched to one or more of the four TVs. OTA and cable are sent to each of the tvs using traditional coax. I would have to assume that a Bounder 35k manufactured in the past few years is wired in a similar fashion.

Our 2016 33C (35K without the back bathroom). All the TVs are connected by HDMI cables to the bedroom cabinet behind the Bedroom TV. Each TV is also connected to the OTA antenna via a splitter located behind the bedroom cabinets..

We used a Dish Hopper 3 in the bedroom compartment and used one of the provided HDMI splitters to drive the Mid TV and the Front TV. That way the same programming was show on those two TVs so people at the table could see. We gad two Joeys in the bedroom cabinet too, One drove the bedroom TV. The other drove the Exterior TV.

I would like to add that the Blu-ray player works on the midship TV only. The Outdoor TV on our 35k displays OTA and Satellite

If you check, the dash radio is also a DVD player for the Front TV. And the radio under the External TV is the sound system for that TV and a DVD player as well.

Mark. I learn something every day. Had no idea the dash radio had a DVD player for the TV above. Lol

DVD that came in our rig is a Blue Ray player. It is also the control for the surround sound. This is for the middle TV. The back TV also came with a DVD player, But we have not used it yet, so I have no information on it.

Here is one thing I found and have showed other owners of new rigs. If your not happy with the surround sound,pull the front facing kick panel off the dinette. This is the one that has the 110 volt plug in it. You may find that the sub-wolfer still has plastic wrapped on it. Remove the plastic, and put kick panel back on. The Sound is much better.

You can contact REV for the schematics.
Makes you scratch your head how they did it. I rewired it with a 4 way HDMI box so can now watch the one Dish receiver on all tvs.

We had the same problem!

Also a reminder, the surround system amp is built into the BluRay player, so any other HDMI source you might switch or plumb in, won't use the surround audio but just the TV speakers.

There are some audio inputs on the BluRay player depending on which model you have.

Also, the Dish system is wired to be one receiver feeds the two rear TVs (bed and fireplace) and one receiver feeds the front two (loft and outside).

I also made the following notes about how our 2018 Southwind 35K was hooked up:

Bedroom
-HDMI1=Dish

Living Room
- HDMI1=Blu Ray,
- HDMI2=Dish

Loft TV
- HDMI1=Dish
- HDMI2=Blu Ray

Outside TV - ??
