Main TV

In my 2018 thor ACE the inverter powers the outside tv, the bedroom tv, and the outside refrigerator. The main tv doesn't seem to work on the inverter. My question, is this TV supposed to work on the inverter? If not has anyone addressed this problem before?

That's an odd situation...
In my Outlaw: the inverter was actually called an "entertainment inverter", and it powered the main television, and the house stereo...
Can you plug in your Main TV where the outside one is plugged in?

I am not real familiar with the ACE but I think the TV should work off the inverted power. When we got our coach, several things were plugged into incorrect outlets which caused the same kinds of issues. For instance, the outside TV was plugged into the outlet for the cook top and vice versa, and one of the inside TV's was plugged into the fireplace outlet and vice versa, so stuff worked on the inverter that shouldn't and stuff didn't that should. So track down the outlet and look for another nearby. Let us know.

Your getting into one of the many issues created by the assemblers doing things in the most expeditious way they can. The result is inconsistencies from one unit to the next. In my case the plumbing drains are not at all the way the drawings that Thor supplied show they should be. If your inside TV is not working off your inverter, it shouldn't be too big a job to track down the wiring and connect that set to the inverter.

All three TVs, a duplex receptacle in the electronics cabinet (where the BOMB or DVD player goes) and the outside refrigerator SHOULD all be powered by the inverter. My inverter is in the electrical compartment compartment under the bed. The single 14ga Romex cable from the front of the inverted goes into an metal junction box where it splits into three different feeds. The main TV is daisy- chained to the outside TV and the electronics cabinet. The outside frig and bedroom TV have home runs.

Nope. Main TV rises out of counter and is plugged in under the sink

Sounds like they didn't chain them together. I will look at the inverter for the junction box and find where the outside tv is plugged in. Are there no relays or blocking diodes involved?
