And then there's that durned television...


Here's the scenario: We parked Tergel at a C/G near Seattle last June for two wks, sans hookups, while we "did" Alaska. When we returned and moved to a F/H site, the sound on the one-year-old Jensen TV was barely audible. No reason. Picture was fine. Jimmy tried everything the manual said to do; nothing. Then he contacted Winnebago (Tergel's maker) for instructions; no help there, they just install the dang things. He called Jensen (TV maker) and they were of NO help whatsoever. Get this: Jensen no longer has service centers or parts for their TV's (guess they want you to buy a NEW Jensen, heh-heh). Two months later and still on the road, we got in touch with a friend of a friend who's a true TV technician - he and Jimmy pulled the dang thing apart and it was judged non-fixable.

Fast forward to January now back at the condo, and one last hope: Willard TV in Fairhope AL. Jimmy hauled the Jensen to him. Willard said, "I'll see what I can do." Without any help from Jensen (no schematic, no nothing!), Willard installed an amplifier, and NOW WE HAVE SOUND. Thank you Willard!

NO THANX TO JENSEN.




End of story... we hope.
