Update;  Riverside said that they no longer put a 12volt outlet by the TV hookup on the new Retros.  We don't know why.

Odd that yours doesn't have a 12v outlet like mine in the bedroom. Maybe it was an option or something.

the yellow/red/white RCA jacks are audio/video coming out from your Jensen DVD player if you have one. the HDMI jack inn the bedroom is also an output from the Jensen. At least that's how mine works. 

Thanks for the idea. Does it play through the stereo? If so, surround sound would be awesome.

Here is a pic of a 2017 model. They must have changed it for 2018. I think the combo plate is about $30. 195a.jpg

its quite possible that Magnadyne does not make a similar switch plate to the Wineguard, and that the two systems are not compatible. The switch plate also sends power up to the amplifier in the antenna, and a switch plate change could potentially be disasterous. That would explain the loss of an outlet in 2018.

Here are closeups of the 195.
And btw, the stereo is in no way hooked up to any tv outlet. Bummer!

Someone was right in saying just a few changes would make these models the best TTS on the road. 

And add a little more quality control. .

FWIW, I added a bluray player under the bedroom TV. The Jensen has several inputs on the back that are unused. I used the analog coax lines to run audio back to those inputs. Bluray uses yellow for digital coaxial audio, and the TV left and right travels back to the jensen on red & white. Just had to pull out the Jensen and move the connectors. Super easy.

I couldn't find the correct combination plate for a Magnadyne antenna so ended up getting a 12volt outlet from Amazon (no one around here had one).  Looks and works ok. IMG_20170807_093313255-2672x1503.jpg

Thanks, I'll have to pull the Jenson and check out out. And take a pic for everyone. 
I could run a cable from out to the tv or dvd. Then create surround sound.
