THOR #3635
entertainment System

I have a 2015 Thor Vegas, it has 3 flat screen tv's with regular old sound. There is a cabinet above the microwave wit a switch box a HDMI cable and electrical plug. Can a Apple TV be installed?, if so will it control all 3 flat screens?, or does the switch box allow it to control them individually? Also what is recommended to improve the sound?

Yes you can use an Apple TV connected to the HDMI cable. That HDMI cable only goes to the main TV above the door.

The Apple TV will be pretty useless, though, if you attempt to connect it to campground WiFi. You'll have better luck using a local hotspot or shared WiFi from a phone or tablet (but be warned you'll consume a bunch of bandwidth in that case).

If its the new Apple TV you'd still be able to play many of the games (at least the ones that don't require internet access).

Thank You for the info, do you recommend any upgrades for a tv sound system?

I'd look for a compact external sound bar - based on what you can fit...
LCD TV's are space challenged for internal speakers - even at home.
Probably would skip the surround and subwoofer based on space - but guessing someone has done that too.
I've thought about the soundbar - have a shelf just below the tv that I could use - but hasn't been important enough yet.

A good pair of headphones sounds great too if you don't want to disturb the other residents of the RV.

The Challengers come with a Vizio sound bar mounted below the television which works very well. It is, however, wired into 2 additional speakers mounted over the couch in my coach (37ND).

I forgot I had my manuals in the house and not in the coach at the dealer.

The Vizio model is VSB211. What is interesting is the manual says it includes a subwoofer. I guess when my coach gets back from its warranty visit I need to try and locate a subwoofer. My guess is that it is not included in the installation and the other two speakers are plugged into the subwoofer jack on the back of the sound bar.

For more info

I installed a Sony HT-CT180 that sounds great, (picked it up on sale at Target for $95). It has a very low profile soundbar that fits very well under the large TV in my coach. The subwoofer is wireless, so it can be easily placed wherever you can stuff it without needing to run a speaker wire to it.
