Furrion-710

1) The original entertainment system, which consisted of a basic DVD stereo and a TV held to the wall with a vinyl strap for transit, was adequate but needed to be updated. 2) Removing the stereo revealed the wiring harness and RCA connections to the factory-installed TV. These had to be changed to a new harness, and an HDMI cable was added for the HDMI-ARC feature. 3) The original TV has a basic nonlocking articulating mount that didn’t reach out far enough for good viewing from the couch or the theater seating. Also, there wasn’t enough wiring for the entertainment system to connect to the TV.
4) The framed wall, designed for the old TV mount, was modified for the new mounting bracket, which attached to the wall in the center behind the TV. We stripped the wall and added a 2x6-inch board for this modification. We used 2x6 lumber because that was what the manufacturer had used in the wall, but the TV is light, and smaller dimensioned lumber could have been used. 5) Upon opening the wall, we found bad coax connections that were the source of an annoying static condition. We replaced all the connections with professional-grade RG-6 connectors. 6) Additional HDMI cables were routed to the entertainment center; one existing cable was reused, along with the component cables for connecting to the system components, including the Furrion stereo.
11) The hole from the original speaker had to be opened and adjusted for the new speaker. This was a better option than pulling down the ceiling panel and cutting in a new opening. 12) The new speakers look good and sound better. 13) The stereo head attaches with four screws under the lower faceplate, which snaps back in place. A new cabinet style to fill in the larger hole from the old stereo was as close to the original as possible; larger holes were filled in later with matching putty.
