I second camper bob, I have the same tv as you (Vizio 24"), and plugged the yellow in the green port (that's why it is labeled Y/V Y=yellow) and it works just fine...just make sure you select the component Input on your tv to watch the DVD.
If you want to watch tv from your antenna, plug a coaxial cable in the back of the tv to the plug on the wall...push the booster button on and then go into your tv menu and do a channel scan (don't remember the exact menu but pretty self explanatory). Once the scanning is done, you should see that if channels were available, they were scanned and you should be able to watch the tv by changing your tv input to over the air antenna...

I will give a 3rd second to what camperbob said regarding the cables. I just hooked a TV up for my dad that had the green connector instead of yellow. Plugged the yellow cable in to the green connector and all worked fine.
camperbob & Feather has already explained the antennae function quite well, I won't repeat it again.

Thanks everyone for your great inputs. This is a great forum for us Jayco owners. One last question on plugging in the cables for the DVD. Do you plug in the audio cables (white and red) to the ones just to the right of the green port or to the ones at the far right? I know that I am being rather anal here but I don't have my trailer with me right now and want to be fully ready to set up the TV next week when we take our next trip (California, here we come to the Chula Vista RV Resort on San Diego Bay!).

Aside from the fact that you needed a little help on the TV . . .

Congratulations on your first trip! We decided to have the TV factory installed because we are two steps below a box of rocks when it comes to being handy. If it weren't for Camper Bob; Allamuchy; Rustic Eagle; Nhybrid; and a host of others, we would have given up several months back. This forum and its "people" rock!

We are in SoCal and will be heading to the river and maybe further into AZ but we are still waiting for delivery of our TT and then we need some practice before heading out to anything farther than the closest WalMart

Enjoy your x19h and let us know what you like best about it (so far).

Safe travel.

Chula Vista RV Resort is a very nice park..., did an extended stay there a few years ago and had a nice perimeter site with a view of the Bay.

Thanks for your kind words; and you are right, this forum "rocks!" We love the fact that the 19H is light and easy to pull; yet, when the ends are opened, it is about a 30 ft. trailer. We have added memory foam toppers to both beds and they are very comfortable. The refrigerator is very efficient and a good size. The fact that it has a small "closet" is also a big plus. About the only item of concern is the fact that the shower ends up leaking because of the design of the curtain mechanism. Its workable, but we will seek out a way to make it so that does not happen. Any ideas?

Bob
Yes it is a very nice Park. Because our daughter and our new grand daughter live in Chula Vista, we have been there many times, but always without our trailer. We will be spending about three weeks there beginning next Monday and will get our grandma and papa fix!!! We can only hope to get a nice perimeter site with that great view.

That all sounds fabulous. The tent ends seem to be the way to go - otherwise you'd be lugging that much more TT down the road. We will have enough challenges learning about RV'ing with the x20e. It is about a foot longer than the x19h.

Regaring the memory foam toppers: Where did you get them; what was the price?, will they roll and stow near the mattress when you close the ends? how thick are they? Lots of questions, but we really want to do this and I couldn't find something on Amazon that looked like it would roll and tuck away. Our bunks are the same size.

Congrats, too on the grand baby. The "bonus round" is the best.

We got a 4" topper at Walmart for about $109. They have thinner ones for much less but I wanted big time comfort. We rolled up the one for the back bunk and it fit on top of the back mattress when closed. This won't work for the front bunk, however, unless you have a thinner topper. Then we just folded up the whole mattress and topper for the front bed and placed it length wise down the center of the TT for travel because we were going out again in a couple of days. I suppose we will roll them and stow them when we eventually store the TT for more than a month and maybe just put them in our garage (for both).
