Older tv system components connections

i have a 97 class a that has 2 analog tvs. the tv cables are not all connected to the components in the cabinet, im hoping someone can tell me what goes where. there is a magnadyne vcs-s switching box that the cables from front and rear tvs are connected in their prospective spots, and cables to "from aux" and "from ant" are connected to it. both of these latter cables come from the back of the wall mounted amplifier switch?(has red led light and cigarette outlet). the cable from the front of this switch is not connected. the other components are a rf modulator, a analog pass through, and a dvd player. i dont know how to hook which cables to which component to make everything work. any help would be greatly appreciated.

Take a couple photos of the cables and switchbox, etc.. Without knowing exactly what you have, its difficult to provide any feedback..

On my 1999 Southwind, I ripped all the old stuff out and replaced the old TVs with two flat screens. (first diagram)

This year, I rearranged and simplified everything and added two Orby satellite receivers. (second diagram)
