TV Questions - 2014 Southwind 32VU

I just purchased a 2014 Southwind 32VU and trying to figure out the TV wiring. Everything up front seems to work fine. Mid and Front TV's both have HD satellite and Bluray. The bedroom TV only receives signals from the ota antenna and cable via coax. Nothing from the HDMI inputs. There is an hdmi cable connected to the bedroom set but I can't find where it is supposed to connect at the entertainment cabinet up front. Also in the cabinet above the bedroom tv there is another coax that comes from the second lnb of the sat antenna and two additional hdmi cables labeled 1067 and 1068. Any idea where all these hdmi cables go and where I can find the other ends?

I am assuming all the Fleetwoods are likely wired the same. To receive satellite on the bedroom TV, you need the 2nd satellite receiver box. Coax goes into that, then the HDMI goes into the output. The outside TV if you have one, is set to component and runs off the bedroom TV receiver. Your front satellite box handles the front TV and mid coach TV (if you have one) Hope this helps.

Thanks. I found a schematic on an old thread here for the 2014 Bounder. Appears to be wired the same. I did a little more investigation and figured it out. Your explanation is right on. I did an experiment this evening and added a 2nd powered hdmi splitter downstream of the output to the front tv. Worked like a champ. Sat on all three tv's. Now I just have to figure out how to route an hdmi cable to the rear tv. I have a second receiver and could go that route but the second lnb on the rooftop Roadtrip dome can't control which satellite your on (Dish). Probably a good excuse to dump the Roadtrip and put a Travl'r on.

I purchased this modulator on Amazon and used the analog output of my direct tv receiver to broadcast the Direct TV to my bedroom and outside televisions. My Direct TV receiver only broadcasts HDMI to the front and midship televisions. It automatically broadcasts on channel 3 when I turn on my Direct TV receiver. In order to watch cable television or antenna, I need to shut off the Direct TV receiver. You can also shut off the power to the modulator and it will pass the antenna or cable signal through it. The coaxial television cables are located in my front compartment on the right wall next to the direct tv receiver. I just purchased a short cable from Radio Shack to place this modulator between the input coaxial cable and the splitter. I know this does not broadcast in High definition, but I use the satellite dome which does not give me high definition on Direct TV anyway and this only cost me about $15.

I just went through the same process with my Southwind 36L. I got the schematics from Fleetwood, and was very surprised that there was no HDMI from the from area to the bedroom or outside TV. I had planned to get a modulator as well to remedy this once I realized nothing seemed to be getting HD for the dish. I'm running dish network rather than direct, does anyone know if I am in the same board regarding HD?

If anyone else has this issue and wants the schematics PM me I'd be happy to send them on.

I found the schematics on an earlier post here. I believe they are the same for Bonder/Southwind. There is a hdmi cable in the compartment above the bedroom tv that goes to the exterior tv outlet. My plan is to put a 1x4 hdmi splitter in the entertainment cabinet and run an hdmi cable to the exterior tv connection in the side compartment. Connect that to a 1x2 hdmi splitter. Connect one output to the hdmi cable that runs between the bedroom and the side compartment. RF modulator will only give you SD.

Using the satellite dome with Dish Network, I believe you will be able to get you high definition channels per the instruction manual for the satellite dome.

Nice idea to run the hdmi cable to the outside TV and then use the preinstalled cable from the outside TV to bedroom TV. Please let us know if you get that to work. If I change providers, Direct to Dish, then I would be interested in trying to get hdmi to bedroom and outside televisions. Because I can only get Sd with Direct, I have not opted to get a second receiver for the bedroom.

Thanks,
Jim

I tried the backfeed to the bedroom tv this afternoon with a temporary hdmi cable from the E cabinet to the exterior tv outlet. Worked perfect. 1x4 hdmi splitter on order ( Full HD HDMI Splitter 1x4 4 Port Hub Repeater Amplifier V1 4 3D 1080p 1 in 4 Out | eBay ). Just need to run an hdmi cable from the new splitter (replacing the standard 1x2 splitter) to the outside compartment. Shouldn't be too difficult. Then I will have HD satellite on the bedroom tv and in the exterior bay with one receiver. Really what Fleetwood should have done in the first place.

OK, so the HDMI cable from the bedroom TV goes to the outside TV. Put a splitter from the Sat receiver to the outside TV. Now how are you supposed to change channels from the comfort of your outside seat and beer cooler if the receiver is in the bedroom?

I have attached the wiring diagrams for my 2014 Bounder. The front tv and mid ship tv hdmi are connected together and share the satellite receiver located in the front cabinet. The rear tv and outside tv hdmi are supplied by a second satellite receiver which would be positioned inside the bedroom cabinet. I hope this helps. I would assume that your Southwind would be similar to the Bounder.

Good luck,
Jim
