Here's how I did it:
Pull your stereo system from the cabinet. It's only held in by 4 screws, so it's pretty easy, and the stereo is very light.
Coming out ofthe back ofthe stereo unit should be a cable with three unused RCA-type plugs on it -- red, yellow and white. (There are about a million other cables behind your stereo, too, so be gentle.) The cable you want probably has a paper tag on it that says something like "AUX"on it. Take a new cable with three RCA plugs on either end and plug one set of 'em into that cable coming out of the back of your stereo system. Then just run that cable up to your TV and plug the other end of that new cable into the appropriate output jacks on back of TV. (You probably will NOT need to connect one of the cables tothe "video out" jack on the back of your TV, since you're not running video signal thru the stereo system -- just sound) You will have to have your stereo system'sinput set to AUX1 or AUX2 to hear the TV through the stereo system. There may be more than one set of output jacks on the back of your TV. If that's the case, you may have to move the cables from one set of jacks to another to get the sound from the TV to your stereo system.
We went a step farther. Since the factory-installed stereo doesn't play blu-ray disks, we bought a blu-ray player, ran cables fromthat up to the TV and now we can play either blu-ray or regular DVDs in our system, all with stereo sound.The OEM stereo in the trailer only plays regular DVDs.
