Audio ports HDMI cords

From an audio/visual novice. 2013 Interstate, in the upper storage behind the slider above the driver are empty audio ports (white,red,blue) against the wall of the storage area along with 2 HDMI cords coming from somewhere and leading to nowhere, and a second Coax cable. I assume the second coax is for satellite? Anyone know what the audio ports are for and uses for the HDMI cables? Can't find any explanation or description in the manuals.

Yes second coax is for adding a satellite system. The two HDMI cables are there to allow you to add a Blu-ray player and connect to each TV individually. Check the color match on the HDMI plugs on your TVs.

Oh - BTW the owners manual from Airstream for the Interstate are the worst in the industry. The manual they gave me for my 2013 model still had the image of a Freightliner Sprinter on the cover and the rest of the manual was just as old; 2008-2009 vintage being passed off as manual for 2013 model. The one I downloaded from the Airstream web site was the same outdated manual.

COME ON AIRSTREAM YOU CAN DO BETTER!!!

Thanks. I see the different HDMI color caps. What are the audio ports for? Are they for Blu Ray Audio output? And does the audio route to the headphone ports again? I really would like to utilize the coach speakers for DVD audio but sounds like I may have to take it to Car Toys or a shop to make that happen since the sound is routed to the headphone ports unless you use the tinny TV speakers (aarrgh) thus sacrificing Dolby digital and surround sound.

Not sure which audio ports you are talking about. The TV sound is either from the TV speakers or from headphones using headphone port and switched to headphones.

If you want the TV audio routed to Kenwood unit and coach speakers you will have to add wires and likely your best bet is a good car audio shop.

I'll have to check and see if my rig has this connector. I've never noticed it - but as you said it's dark in that over head cabinet. Sure would be nice if that was connected to the Kenwood Aux In for audio.

Mine has same connector. It is video and audio to the forward TV. Not to Kenwood unit.
