Are we talking about a Springdale TT or maybe a Laredo 5ver? Is it a 2010 or older? You have to be more specific!

Default Wiring

Sorry Flyguy, should have given more info ,it's a 2010 Springdale 266RL-SSR travel trailer...I looked for maybe a wiring guide in all the books from the dealer but in short the TV will not come thru the overhead speakers, the stero and CD's and DVD's will. Plus the cable plate just has a jumper from one to the other ?

Not knowing the particulars of your TT and the new ones in general, I would say that the cable plate is either connecting to another part of the trailer (needing a splitter for both points) or your TT is wired for both satellite and catv (CATV is what you get at the campgrounds), you would remove the jumper and select the one for satellite to go to your receiver if I'm thinking right, as far as the radio goes, usually it's selectable on the radio for which speaker stations you want (outside only, inside only, or both), my radio has two stations outside and inside, the new ones have added two inside stations for surround sound plus the outside station, it could very well be that the design only allows one inside station for TV because surround sound isn't normally available with your tv, but I'm just guessing here, maybe someone with a 2010 will chime in and clear the matter up. You won't find a wiring guide with the Keystone paperwork, if the radio is a Jensen I have some manuals listed on my homepage for those radios which do include a wiring diagram, click on flyguy in the upper left of this post and follow the menu options to my homepage and then look in the radio folder.

Are you talking about not having sound through the stereo speakers while watching tv from the off air antenna? If this is the case it's because the other sources, ie cd,dvd,radio, are all run through the stereo receiver to your stereo speakers. An over the air tv broadcast is being delivered straight to the tuner in your television and therefore can only be heard over the televisions speakers. You can remedy this by running an audio cable from the output of you television and into the aux inputs on the back of you stereo reciever. This way you just select aux on your stereo to listen to the tv signal. Almost all of the TT stereos out there will have another aux input like I'm describing but you'll have to run the cable yourself as Keystone doesn't do it for you. It is a piece of cake though. Hope this helps you

Most of the stereos have small plugs on the front that pry out. Four screws go into the wood. The whole unit comes out in one piece.

I was having the same trouble with my '10 laredo 303. The folks who put the TV in, had put the RCA (red, white, yellow) cables all mixed up. They had the inputs in the outputs and the outputs in the inputs. I took the tv off the wall and the stereo out and figured it out. Works like a charm! Now if I can teach my wife to turn off the outside speakers when watching TV inside, we'll all be groovin!
