What is this remote?

Getting ready for our first spring in the new rig... Of course we may not make it past the storage lot if campgrounds continue to shut down. The unit came with a drawer full of remotes. Anyone know what this one is for???

How many TV connections do you have? It might be a remote for a TV switch.

The labels do match my TV locations. What would the switch do? Distribute Satellite signal?

I'm not familiar with the audio/video signal distribution on your 2020 Fleetwood Bounder, but, that remote looks just like a remote that controls the audio/video distribution on my '18 Entegra Anthem. The device that remote controls on Entegra coaches is called the Matrix.

Take care,
Stu

Yup, Video 4 X 4 Matrix

From your Owner's Manual (page 123):

VIDEO 4 X 4 MATRIX (IF EQUIPPED):
The motorehome may be equipped with a Video 4
x 4 Matrix, which means any of the 4 video inputs
can be viewed on any of the 4 zones independently
or simultanuosly. To change input at each zone
momentarilly press the selector button to cycle
through each inputs. Pressing the RESET button will set
the matrix back to factory settings.
To Watch DVD or Blu-ray from Blu-ray Player (OEM
or customer installed):
On the TV change in input to either HDMI 1 or
HDMI 2, depending on which connection is used.
On the video 4 x 4 Matrix select DVD (if equipped).
Turn on Blu-ray Player and place the DVD or Bluray in the Blu-ray player then press play to start
watching.
To Watch Satellite TV:
On the TV, if the 4 x4 Matrix is equipped, change
in input to either HDMI 1 or HDMI 2, depending
on which connection is used. If the 4 x 4 is not
equipped, change the input to ch3 or ch4.
On the video 4 x 4 Matrix, select either Sat1 or Sat2
depending upon which Satellite receiver is desired
(if equipped).
Turn on the Satellite receiver and related remote to
change channels (customer supplied).
To Watch Over The Air (OTA) Antenna or Cable TV:
On the Antenna booster press the button in for
OTA and press the button in the out position for
cable TV.
On the TV select TV input and scan for channels
(refer to TV manufactures manual for instructions).
Once completed select the desired channel with
the TV remote.
Exterior Entertainment (with 4 x 4 Matrix):
Use the 4 x 4 matrix to select DVD, Sat1, or Sat2,
when the TV is set to HDMI 1, to watch that output
at the exterior TV
To watch a DVD locally, from exterior radio, switch
the TV to Video input and put in a DVD disk into

One more thing to poke around and figure out.

The hilarious thing for me... In 12 years of RVing I have watched TV a grand total of 4 times... Now I own a unit with four TVs!!!

That was what I had originally assumed on our walk through and forgot to ask further. Looks like by 777s post it is part of the entertainment system.

Now...My unit came with Precision Plex... I can actually use my phone to automate all of the systems, everything from light switches to slideouts. That wont break two days after my warranty ends I am sure

Although this .pdf (Entegra Matrix Help.pdf) is Entegra specific and may not be exactly what is installed in your coach, it gives a good description of the MATRIX concept.

Although the remote may be useful, it's been my experience that using your Precision Plex or your phone application may be more user friendly than the remote. One of the more challenging aspects of the remote is an inherent time lag after pressing a button on the remote before the audio/video source changes.

Take care,
Stu
