I have a 2013 Redwood 36RL and on my second camping trip with it & decided to use my built in RCA surround sound Blu-Ray player to watch RV the movie with the family. Well only the AM/FM stereo will work the disc drive will not open. I tried a bunch of things with no success. So I unplugged everything & removed the cover & got the tray to open with some alignment of the drive inserted the disc & it sounded like a jet taking off that drive was spinning so fast. I unplugged it & got my disc out. I have read that a lot of other people have had problems with this RCA unit. I guess I will give Redwood a call on Mon. Anyone else have this same surround sound unit in their coach ?

The RCA players were all replaced with better units because of problems. Ours would only run about half way through a movie and then shut down.

After I posted this I saw a thread on this topic that shows most if not all have had the same issues with their RCA unit & had it replaced with an LG. Will Redwood send me the replacement or will I have to go to the dealer ? I guess I will go get a Blu-Ray player while on this trip so we can enjoy movies + I want a player for the bedroom tv.
Thanks,
Brian

Just got our replacement for our defective RCA unit, just called our dealer and he did the rest. We are are doing the install. If you have not already discovered it, the speaker wires are not color coded so you will need to hook them up one speaker at a time so you can figure out which set of wires goes to each speaker, you will also have to splice a new end on the sub woofer line as it is different on the LG replacement unit. Our LG came with the new end included.

The sub woofer can be found behind the fireplace on the RLs
