Watching DVD outside?

Our Grey wolf 27bhks has the outside speakers, tv bracket, plug, cable connection outside. Have you ever watched a dvd outside? I haven't tried to hook the tv up outside ... is that just for cable?

Thanks!

I don't have this on my camper, but others have stated that the cable connection is a split off from the Roof Antenna/Cable Coax switch.

If so, you will not get the DVD to play outside since it is a composite signal off the player. (yellow plug)

Working on a system to get that signal (and others like the computer) outside. Stay tuned.

On my 26BH there are two outlets. One is for the F-type connector for the cable and one is a RCA plug that is yellow for video. Haven't used ours yet but should be able to put the DVD in the player inside and hook up the TV outside and enjoy. Make sure you change the input on the TV to the one you hooked up from video output.

On my sabre the outside conncections include 1 coax. From antenna.
1 video rca yellow.
Sound comes from outside speakers when using rca "video only"

My coax lead I took off of antenna splitter "behind radio" and tee'd into sat cable coax.

U COULD do the same with your coax but then your outside tv won't have over the air tv.

Thanks all! I took another look, and there is an RCA plug. I'll have to remember to bring plenty of popcorn for this weekend!

I bought an extra mount, and have an older flat panel tv that we use outside. I can either play a dvd or watch Direct TV with the yellow RCA plug. I had to wire it a little different.

I have both the RCA (yellow) and the coax from the antenna. I do not seem to get any video signal from the dvd player but I do get the sound on the outside speakers. Changing input, etc does not receive any video. I do get coax and sound from tv speakers, audio from the radio/dvd player (Touch Audio) but so far, no video. I guess Ihave to remove the Touch and see what connections are or are not made to enable video on the RCA outside. Not a deal breaker, but outside movie has GOT to be better than in side! I could sit in my truck and pretend I am at the drive-in! Wait, I guess I am already at the drive-in.

I ran into the same problem. On the back of the tv they're all 3 outputs and 1 of the outputs was bad. I change the inputs around and everything works fine used it a couple weekends ago realy made it nice.

Not sure if all the dealers use the same brand/model TV when you purchase the TV option but my 24" TV has a built in DVD (slides in the side). It's very easy to use outside.
