Your best bet it to go wireless. Not cheap by no means but it does the trick. Manufactures should set their rigs up so it would me easy to retro as technology changes but that might cost a couple of pennys and they just don't want to spare them. Shop Ebay and Amazon. There is where you'll find the best deals. As for you question about Coax to RCA. Yes they make them. My 06 Newmar Kountry Star came with them but you need three separate lines for it to work-Video-Left sound-Right sound.

If it is a single rca type connector, black in color then it is likely a digital output to a tv or a/v receiver for 5.1 or 7.1 surround sound. Any other rca type outputs would likely be ( if available ) 1 red + 1 white for stereo line level audio, 1 yellow for analog video, and 1 ea Yb(lue) + Yg(reen) + Yr(ed) for component video.

One important question - what type of inputs can the rear tv accept ? Is it an older style tube tv or a newer lcd/led with hdmi or other digital inputs? If it is an old tv it might simply be cheaper to get a small basic DVD player for the bedroom tv itself. Find out what the tv supports, get a player that is compatible and marry the two together.

You can't do that. A single black RCA is digital audio. Of course, tons of others have provided that info before me. As a few have also suggested, please let us know the brand and model of DVD player then you can get suggestions on how to make it work.

You may not like what you hear though and might find that replacing the old TV is a better option if the DVD is all digital like many are these days. Or you could always return the DVD player and get a super cheapo with the good ole yellow white and red connectors on the back and pick up an RF Modulator.
