If your stereo has an AUX input then just get a cable from radio shack plug it into the Headphone jack of the TV or DVD player and put it into the AUX jack on the stereo. If there is no headphone jack just get the converter cables from RCA to headphone plug and do the same thing. just keep the volume down on the TV/ DVD player. Hook my computeruplikethis all the time and watch movies on it.

My new White Hawk came with the Jensen stereo/DVD unit and a 40' flatscreen. I hated the sound of the television speakers when watching regular over the air programing but when we popped in a DVD it would play through the TT speakers that were a bit better. I discovered the same thing an earlier poster here did. The back of the Jensen stereo has 3 RCA ports. One is video out (yellow), one is audio IN red and the other in audio INwhite. I followed these 3 RCA cables to the television and they were plugged into the video in (yellow - which makes sense) and the the two others were plugged into the audio in (red & white) which did not make sense. I simply unplugged the red and white RCA jacks on the back of the TV and replugged them into the audio OUT on the back of the television and now I get my flat panel to play trhough the TT speakers when watching over the air signals. Additionally, I added a Blu Ray player to the TV with an HDMI cable and now that too play over the TT speakers. Last thing I did was to go to the menu settings of the television and disable the televisions internal speakers since they sound so poorly. It was just too easy of an mod!!!

How to connect a TV to built in Jensen stereo/DVD player

I decided just to install a RCA wall plate jack so I can hook up an output from the iRV entertainment system. I order the parts from showmecables.com. I removed the iRV system from the cabinet. I was going to mount the RCA wall plate on the side wall to the left of the iRV system. After measuring the space there, it was very close and I didn't want to take the chance of cutting a hole and it not fitting. I decided to mount it on the bottom side of the cabinet below the iRV system. I used four wood screws to mount it to the cabinet. I have an A/V cable (red, white, yellow) connected inside the cabinet from the output on the back side of the iRV system to the inner side of the RCA wall plate. Then you just have to run an A/V cable from the RCA wall plate to the television.
I had contacted Jayco regarding this and their response was that because a television was not an option for the x17z, they do not install the hookup for the DVD player. That doesn't make much sense to me because they install a antenna, a 12v television outlet, cable/satellite hookups, and the trailer is advertised as having a DVD player, yet no access to function the DVD player. Jayco advised me that I could contact my dealer to have it hooked up. I love my Jayco trailer, but what are they thinking? I hope this may help anyone with the same issue.

I have attached a photo of the finished project.

Here are the parts to make up the RCA wall plate:

We have the X17A and I used the RCA cables to connect our tv. Drilled two small holes in cabinet where Jensen is located then ran the RCA cables into the storage area above the bunk. Drilled one more small hole and so the RCA cables hang down right behind the bunk curtain. Didn't take very long. Good Luck!!

Bring it on

Not that I much care, but understanding I may risk severe pushback, I think the problem here isn't so much technical, as systemic. Seems to me "camping" isn't really that - but as my son termed it, "remote moteling". It's certainly only my observation, but were one of my children or even grandkids advise me, "I'm bored" in a camping venue (or even a campground), I'd feel I'd failed in demonstrating the joys and advantages being away from the tech "necessities" , e.g. - campfire, fishing, hunting, hiking, et al., provide. Then, I suppose we're a product of our environment, but a little something other than electronic entertainment might be refreshing. As the Title on this particular Reply implies, I stand by for a ram.
