My speakers work with my outside tv..but as usual, had to use deductive reasoning to make it work...noticed the tv had 2 rca jacks plugged into audio in on the tv..well that doesn't make sense..so I switched them to the audio out if the tv...since they provided these connection...it only makes sense thst they terminate somewhere..so in this case it should be the rear radio since that plays in the outside speakers...so the rca should be an aux in on the radio...sure enough...aux in 2...now outside speakers play with outside tv...

So did you have to swap them on the radio also?

Is this the one you tried from Best Buy? Can't remember where I bought this, but it works fairly well.

I purchase one of these transmitters to work with the inside living area TV, but I have yet to get it to work!
Someone posted they plugged theirs into the headphone jack, set the unit to transmit then paired it with the Axxera radio via Bluetooth. When I tried this it would pair but I didn't get any sound! I don't know why it worked for him and not me but maybe I'm doing something wrong!
The TV in the living area is not on a articulating mount so it's damn near impossible to reach any of the connections. Why Thor would put the least use TV ( outside) on a articulating mount and not the inside one only Thor knows!
I see from the manual where the audio out ports are located, but can't get to them. Maybe this is where I need to connect the transmitter! What do you think?

I figured out my problem. The audio cables running to the rear radio (white and red) were not plugged into the radio they were just laying there. Plugged them in to the jacks that were hanging and hit aux 2 on radio and there it was. Thanks to this forum I have fixed a lot of stuff on my 2018 Ace 30.3. Its scary some of the stuff that was not checked at the factory and the dealership. It seems that everyone has the same issues. My outside speaker by the door was also never hooked up from the factory.

How did you get to the back of the radio?

On my ace 30.3 the radio is made into the slide part of the bed thats the closest to the back wall. If you put the slide out about half way you can get to the back of the radio from underneath. The red and white audio wires were coming from under the bed and just laying there. I had to plug them into the 2 jack extensions that were hanging down from the radio.

Wonder if the blue tooth adapters were necessary afterall...seems if you check the outside tv and it has RCA cables run to it..then it should play thru the outside speakers...might have to connect them or reconnect them...but should work...

In my case I didnt need the bluetooth adapter. I already had ordered it so Im going to use it up front. My set up may be different than others. If you do have RCA cables that are hooked up to your outside TV from the factory I suggest you make sure everything is hooked up correct or in my case is hooked up at all.

Will be following closely to see how the wireless transmitter works with inside tv and radio. How you connect it and etc.
Please share!

No luck on that. I messed with it for an hour lastnight. I got the devices to pair but could not get the sound from the tv. There is no way to switch audio out from the tv to the transmitter. I tried everything I know to try. Any help would be appreciated.

woneal - same problem here. I posted earlier that there are audio out ports on the Seiki but their location makes them impossible to reach unless I take the TV off the wall!
I can't recall who posted that they were able to get the transmitter to work by plugging into the headphone jack. I would love to hear how they were able to make it work!

My thought is to relocate the stereo unit, either inside the Rv and close to the door/entry way or outside of Rv and in a storage bay.

Has anyone done this? If so, could you tell me how you did it and where you put your unit?

Thanks.

Agree with everyone else regarding the Jensen app .. also, something you might want to do, is go into the settings and turn off the backlight on that Jensen...it will cause battery drain.
in addition, we have added to our arsenal of addons...an externa/portable l speaker which is Bluetooth to our phone, etc. Works well.
