Entertainment system

Can you use the DVD player to watch a movie in the bedroom area of the camper? The only signal we are getting in the bedroom is from the antenna.

At the risk of sound like a an a-hole...No. But I'm only guessing...DVD players usually hook directly to one TV and don't allow dual split feeds. There are external ways to do it though. My guess it that if you only have the coax feed to your bedroom TV, it's feeding the antenna/cable signal only. A DVD will usually be on a seperate non-coax cable input to the TV. However, there are certainly ways to feed both with cables and switches...

Besides the coax there is also the red,white,yellow AV hookup. I have it hooked up to the tv but cant figure out what it is for.

I would assume the stock radio/DVD player that came with your camper would only play DVD's on the TV located in the vicinity of the system which would be the living room/kitchen areas.

Our 26RLS only came with a TV in the living room with the DVD/radio mounted directly below it. Our bedroom has the spot to mount a TV and that's what we did. I purchased a TV with a built in DVD player for the bedroom.

Hi Inspired..... Guess we could use a bit more detail... What kind of DVD player, what kind of Television, how are they connected? Then we can figure out what buttons you need to mash to make it work!

Rick,
That red, white, and yellow cable is a composite video connection cable...most likely coming from the DVD player. To work with the TV, it must be pluged into a AV INPUT on the TV. Your TV should have input plugs and probably output plugs also...they should be identified with engraved letterring on the TV...for example "AUX AV INPUT". Once you make sure its hooked to an INPUT (output won't work here), then you must find how to select that input on the TV remote. The other end of the cable must be plugged to the DVD player "OUTPUT". OH and it is important to match the cable plug colors to the port color you are plugging into...yeah, probably a no-brainer. Good Luck!

Did you select the DVD input on the TV remote? The TV will only display signals that you select. For example; TVs usually default to the antenna and/or cable-TV signals that are from the black coax cable. To play any other AV device that is plugged into the TV, you must select that particular input. Sorry to insult if you already knew that.

I just purchased a 2013 Eagle Premier and discovered that the DVD player was not compatible with the TV. The DVD player was 2002 technology and the TV was 2012. There was no combination of the cables that that I could find that would allow the DVD player to transmit to the TV. I'm having the dealer look at it so I'll let you know what they say.
