I think your easiest way out is just go to WALMART and get a $25 stand alone DVD player for the bedroom and hook up to an available video input on the TV. Thats what we did... Oh the cheap $25 DVD player outlasted the built-in DVD on our big trailer which went south on us about after one year of use. So I have portable DVD players now at both locations - both still going strong...

The AV connection at the bedroom TV ends up in the washer-dryer closet with another set of AV terinals.

Dealer told me that they had to rewire the entertainment center. They say it works now, so I'll find out for sure when I pick it up tomorrow.

Finally got my 5er back from the dealer. They said they had to rewire the player so the speakers worked correctly and so the DVD player would work with the TV. The only problem now is that, when watching the TV only, the sound does not go through the ceiling speakers - only the TV's speakers. When watching a DVD, the ceiling speakers work. Is this the way it's supposed to work?

The "correct" method is a matter of personal taste. The dealer has simply disconnected (or didn't hook up) the "audio out" from the HDTV to the to the Entertainment System...probably because they get too many questions / complaints from users who don't know how to - or don't like to turn on the Entertainment System and select an "input" option just to hear the audio from the HDTV

Personally - I like my HDTV and DVD audio to come through the Entertainment System.....I don't mind the extra step it takes to switch between HDTV and DVD when necessary.....the improved sound quality from the Entertainment System Speakers is worth it.

if you have the round yellow red white wires connected to the tv then yes it will work in the bedroom it will also connect to a TV outside if you have a set of connections in the basement storage compartment. I have a 2010 designer and use all these connections . Cable or antenna or satellite uses the coax cables in mine and DVD uses the RCA cables Y>R>W mentioned before but are accessed on input video 1 on my TV's .The remote has a input button to select this or it's in the TV menu .My 10 designer also has video input connections in the storage area that could be used to input a video from another source like another DVD or a camera from outside so I can't believe a newer trailer wouldn't have at least the equlivent.
