We haven't slept with the AC on yet but have a different problem. When the the AC compressor kicks on, the TV goes out for a few seconds then comes back. We were hooked up to shore power and didn't get any errors on the outside surge suppressor. Anyone have the same problem or have suggestions? We leave Friday for a three week trip out to the Black Hills and back and expect we'll be using the AC a lot.

Holly,
      Check you shore power, sounds like you are drawing too many amps and drawing down the voltage when the compress come on. Check your power plug and see if it's getting warm. If it is then get a volt meter and check out the voltage at the plug

Yes, turn on the sound sound (DVD) player, go into the menu and change the input setting to ??? Until the sound comes out the five speakers. I think it is set to aux, but not sure.

Yep, Aux2 did it and the volume knob on the unit helps to turn it up too.  Lots better now. Thanks.

Thanks Jim, we are still learning all this and haven't bought all the right tools yet. The volt meter just jumped to the top of the list.
