Outdoor tv watching

So i thought i would try watching tv outside the past weekend. Mounted tv to ouside mount, plugged it in out outlet as well as hooked cable up and from there i got nothing. thought i would be able to go inside and slap a movie in the factory rv stereo/dvd player and it would play. I looked through my manual for info on doing this but found nothing to help me out! Do i have to have a seperate dvd played for this tv or was i doing something wrong?!?! Any help would be greatly appreciated!

The DVD player inside is only for that TV. You would need a separate one for the TV outside. You do have access to the antenna on the roof through that jack.

I would suggest you make sure you want that...

on every rv I've had that had a tv outside, I may have watched it one time...

and invariably it bothers the neighbors cuz I'm hard of hearing

just too nice and comfortable inside watching the big screen !

I put a 32 inch on my 270. I believe I read somewhere that the mount would not support much above that weight.
I purchased an adapter to project it out from the side of the trailer a bit, and then got an extension plug with a low profile right angle to the plug end because there was not much clearance back behind the tv.

Used it once only also, but it's nice when the weather is good.

I adapted one of the TV's from home, so the cost to adapt was low. It is there if I want it.
