2012 Skylark FKV "Jensen" TV system issues.

I have read the "Jensen" ANHD20 owner booklet but see no explanation for the 2 cables with yellow,white,& red RCA connectors that are located under the kitchen counter. I picked up my FKV Skylark yesterday & after quick walk thru headed back to Houston 300+ miles. I should have hung around near RV dealer a couple days longer. Anyway, if any of you FKV Skylarkers have the answer I would appreciate the info.

Typically red white and yellow are for a TV audio connection to something.
Red is right audio. White is left audio. Yellow is video.
Is a double ended cable with fittings at either end or is it a pig tail with fitting on one end?
I think it may be used to connect your TV to the "home" sound system or the video system, like a satellite receiver.

Big Jim is correct. Those cables are for connecting your TV. This allows the sound to come through the trailer speakers. It also allows you to show movies (using the Jenson DVD player).

Yep. One set is an input from the jensen dvd player to the tv. The other is an input from a device to the Jensen unit.

Ok, is the input from a device to the Jensen kinda for a surround sound effect and can the jnput be from a DTV receiver, etc? Also, how does one determine which wire set is which, is it just a trial & error test?
I also have a duel cable connector box right beside the Jensen air/cable box and the two connectors in it have a very short cable wire connecting them from one to the other-loop like. Any ideas? BTW, aren't these great trailers!

In mine, I tried plugging in a portable dvd player to the Jensen. It put the audio to the speakers in the trailer. Now I will say that the dealer informed me that they had to replace the unit from the factory as it didn't pass their receipt inspection.

As far as the loop thingy for the antenna booster, I forgot what its for. I know it is in the manual for the antenna. I can look tomorrow.

What I've learned.............
The loop does this: when top (A) is connected to bottom (B) via the loop you have outside cable connection. When (A) is disconnected and outside is connected to a dish you connect satellite receiver to (A) connection. This info was not in my Jensen booklet.
Now about the two unmarked RCA AV cables: What would be the safest method to determine which one is sending av to Jensen and which one is receiving av from Jensen without doing any damage?
BTW: I really appreciate the help from you & everyone else.

I hooked those cables up to the TV and now get an echo... as there is a slight delay between the TV and the sound system speakers

When I am using the Jenson audio thru the roof speakers, I turn the volume all the way down on the TV. We find it a much better quality of sound.
