DVD Player 21SS ROO

I just recently purchased a 2010 21ss ROO. We've only taken it out once. I purchased a flat screen tv. I brought movies and a coax cable to hook the tv to the dvd player. When I got around to hooking it up, I didn't have the right connection. Any ideas on what I may need to buy to get this working?

Thanks

Typically a DVD player to TV setup requires something like this--
http://www.sfcable.com/cable/p/254-603IV.html

They can be bought together like the picture above or separately
where you'll get one that's 3 cables called a component cable
and one that's 2 cables called audio cable.

Walmart, RadioShack, Target, and almost any store that sells
TVs and electronics will have cables for this.

Don't spend a lot of cash.
Those monster cables with gold plated ends that cost $30 on up
are not necessary.

Good luck!

Thanks, but the I have the Wall plate with just on gold connector. I don't have the 3 component connectors. Is there a single cord that will run from the outlet/wall plate to the tv?

Let me know if you can help.

Then virtually any cable with "RCA" plugs on each end
will work.
It can be a 2 way stereo audio cable or a 3 way component
cable or anything you've got laying around left over from
that DVD player or game console at home.
Just use one of the wires to run from your Trailer DVD
player (Concertone??) to the "video input" on the back
or side of your new TV.
The TV will not have sound.
The Concertone will provide sound thru the speakers
in the trailer.
You can leave the TV sound turned all the way down.

You will use the TV speakers when you are watching
broadcast TV stations.

Hope this helps!

So, do I need to take the plate off? Or just get the audio cable. If it's just an audio cable, how doest the dvd (which I believe to be concertone) play the movie on the tv. Sorry, my electrical skills don't travel very far. thanks for the help.

I believe I've answered your question.
Here we go again.....

You said---

The Concertone will provide sound thru the speakers
in the trailer.
You can leave the TV sound turned all the way down.
Put a DVD in the concertone.
Turn on the TV and hit the "input" button on the TV remote.
Choose input 1 or something.....
Turn UP the volume on the concertone.
Be sure your outside speakers are not on if you have
them.


You will use the TV speakers when you are watching
broadcast TV stations.

One wire is all you need to get the picture (video) from the concertone
to the TV.

Just hooked my Concertone up to my TV last night to run the DVD Player. You are correct in these statements:

The Concertone will provide sound thru the speakers in the trailer.

You can leave the TV sound turned all the way down.
Put a DVD in the concertone.
Turn on the TV and hit the "input" button on the TV remote.
Choose input 1 or something.....
Turn UP the volume on the concertone

One Wire is all that is needed to run the DVD Player. Now I don't need to lug around a seperate DVD Player for my son to watch his DVD's. We can utilize the CONCERTONE which was already in the trailer when we got it.
