Default Drive BT100 Radio and TV

Hello All. I have recently bought a new 2021 Ameri Lite 199DD. I have taken it out a few trips and have had the normal new RV issues. One that I can not figure out is how do I play movies through the Drive BT100 radio to the TV?

There is a HDMI port on the front of the radio and the RCA lines that come from the wall where the TV is mounted. Based on what the dealer said all I need to do is plug the HDMI in, hook up the TV with the RCA, select AUX 2, component on the TV and it should work. Nope.

I looked at the back of the radio and it seems right, IF the radio converts HDMI to RCA. If it doesn't then GS is selling parts that are not compatible and tell us they are.

I have the same dvd player in my 2018 Vintage 19ERD model. You only need to insert the dvd disc. The player will not work with a BluRay disc. Make sure the source that is selected is "Disc". Use the button on the far right of the player to select or use the remote. Button is small and above the left knob. The dvd signal will come through the RCA jack. You will have to use the provide RCA cable and connect your TV. Your tv will also need to have the correct source selected.

I do not have that model. It is the head unit only. All I have is radio, AUX 1&2, BT, and USB. There is also a HDMI port on the front as well.

Have you used the radio and have you figured it out? It seems like total junk to me. What is the HDMI even for? Thanks

Well. I took the unit out of the cabinet. There is a HDMI out on the back of the unit. Based on what I saw here is what I can guess is going on. There is RCA in and RCA out on the unit along with one USB and a HDMI out. How it was plugged in was on the RCA out to the factory installed RCA cable. The unit requires that you have an RCA cable plugged to the "IN" in order to play through the RCA "out" at all. I have looked for a decent manual and have found nothing. My conclusion is that it will never work as described. It will not convert HDMI to RCA out to feed the TV unless I buy an adapter. Radio works as it should.

My issue is there is no antenna cable hooked up to the TV connection in the wall. I would assume that this was missed at the factory AND I know it was missed upon dealer prep. What a pain in the butt trying to get someone to work on it. I am not happy Gulf Stream...........

We just picked up our Conquest Lite 238RK and we are having problems trying to figure out what the undocumented stuff in the trailer is. The BT 100 and associated "sound system" is crap. We can barely read the display. We can't use the radio because when we set it to volume level 1 it's too loud. I was able to connect my phone via Bluetooth and play music through it, controlling the volume from the phone, but the sound was pretty bad. If, as DontTreadOnMe indicates, there are RCA cables connected to the back of the unit, then I'd guess the other end of those cables might be what's coming out of the wall next to the "Wi-Fi & Internet" plate (whatever that is). Does sound go out those RCA cables or go in those cables??? Who knows.
Regardless of the presence of an HDMI port, I'm pretty sure it's for audio only.
I did find a product manual at:

Pulitzer Prize-level it's not.

That linked copy is pretty bad. I scanned the copy I got with my trailer package and attached it here.

My BT100 radio is exactly the same crappy system you have.
