19H Maiden Voyage

We took our maiden voyage in our new 19H over the last two days just to check out everything. We went to Lo Lo Mai RV Resort near Sedona AZ which is only about 120 miles from our house. We had full hook ups. My DW mainly backed it in to the site and did a fantastic job! No divorce here! Everything went very well and all systems, except the television, worked as expected! If anyone has a suggestion on hooking up the TV (we supplied our own), so we can at least view DVDs, it would be most appreciated. We also would like some suggestions on making it easier to shut the front door. It seems like we have to slam it more than I would have expected. Lastly, does the electric hitch jack only work when hooked up to the TV (tow vehicle) or to shore power? I would think it would also work with the 12V trailer battery.

if you are wanting to watch DVD's from the IRV unit in your trailer it will require running RCA wires...not a great design...best to just buy a cheap player to sit by the TV

your jack should work off 12v

Check the door catch on the door...mine was upside down but I do find holding the latch open as I am closing it then pressing it closed still works best

Then what are the three wires for where you would place the TV?
Any suggestions why the 12V doesn't seem to work?
I'll check out you input on the door; and thanks!

unsure why your jack doesn't work...there must be a fuse inline somewhere. It must have worked when you picked the trailer up at the dealer. Are you saying that it does work when you are hooked up to the Tow vehicle?

Electric tongue jack will work off 12v only. If it is not working, pull the fuse from the positive (probably green cable), check that it's not blown, and put back in.

they do work off 12v but waiting to see if the OP answers my question of whether it works when hooked to the TV. The dealer may have wired it that way(which is wrong in this case) but there are 2 ways to do it. Power from TV or power from onboard battery

So can I change it to work off the onboard battery? How or should I just leave it the way it is?
