John, you are too kind! Only if it isn't too much trouble...our ETI supplied Boss stereo model number is BV6656B. Link for the manual online:

Our TV is a Supersonic 22" Widescreen LED TV model # SC-2211. Link for the manual:

Thanks again for your offer to look! I was not expecting that!

Jim, a combo TV/DVD is a good idea. But not quite yet justified, in my mind for my occasional desire for headphones....but something to keep in mind down the road if our current set up doesn't work. Thanks again! -Bea

We have a USB drive with music. However, sometimes when one of us is sleeping in, it sure would be nice to be able to use either blue tooth headphones or hard wired headphones with our Boss system somehow.... I tried connecting the yellow cable connectors to our TV (next to the red and white for the DVD) to see if the sound could be transferred to our TV since our TV has a headphone jack, but that didn't work. Am I missing something or is the only 'aux out' connection going/wired to our trailer speakers? -Bea
Bea, Just received our 19 middle of May, we had the stereo installed. I went back and forth on getting it, but I figured what the heck. It's the same unit and it does have aux input. I don't think it has an output for headphones. I've plugged in my tablet which has our music on it and works fine, and I can plug headphones directly into that if needed. HOWEVER, my wife was putting on the new bedding she bought and was listening to a CD which I had left in the trailer. It was working and then stopped. She hollered at me, and after playing around with it, couldn't get other CD's to work. I ran a DVD in it, which worked fine. E-mailed escape, they said to deal with Boss. Called Boss, they said perhaps the laser head that reads the CD's was dirty...bought a CD cleaner, still no go. They are sending me a new unit. Also, they stopped making that particular model in 2017! I'll get an upgraded unit. You can always give them a call for Tech support, they are very helpful.

Hi Larry, thank you SO MUCH for sharing your story and for your great advice. Just may give Tech support a call! Hope your new stereo unit works well for you and congrats on your new 19!! -Bea

ok, looks like there's two sets of audio outputs on the back, Zone A and Zone B, each have red+white RCA jacks for stereio audio...

now, if your speakers on that Boss system are on zone A then, use the zone B output jacks for the wireless transmitter and shut zone A off when you want to listen to wireless.

you could use something like this... these are quite nice quality TV cordless phones...
https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07J4TYZ72

now note, that particular cordless headset, the base station/transmitter has 12VDC input, and a 120VAC wall wart, so you'd need a custom cable to power it with 12VDC, maybe from a cigar lighter outlet.

another alternative would be something like this...
https://www.amazon.com/TaoTronics-Bl.../dp/B01IV1H1ME
which uses USB power, so should be easy to get a USB 12V charger cigar adapter.... and use this with whatever existing bluetooth headphones/earplugs you have. I've had issues with bluetooth on video where the audio is delayed some noticeable fraction of a second, it can be kind of annoying if its a quarter second or more, but those /claim/ to be low latency, so hopefully don't have that problem.

Hi John, Wow! Thank you so much for all for all this research for me. You are so very kind and helpful!!! What great timing, I haven't called tech support yet but now I can have fun seeing if I can get this to work on my own first! Great links. What a fun quest! Thanks again! -Bea
