Question 2019 Thor Freedom Elite

Our televisions will not work on the backup battery. Do we have to be plug into a 30AMP for those to work?

Do your TV's at home work off battery? To answer your question they must be plugged into a regular 110 volt outlet to work.

Sue...you can install an inverter that will allow your TV(s) to work with no shore power. Lots here do this and it isn't too complicated of a task. You viewing time would be limited without running the truck engine, depending on how much power your TV draws, but it could be done. It would also allow you to watch movies when traveling along without having to run the generator.

Depending upon your model, if you have an inverter, it may power the main TV.

Welcome! Without modifications, your TVs will only work on shore power or generator power.

I installed tvs with the brick cord. It converts 110 to 12 volts so I can watch tv without running the generator. I made my own cord and run 12 volts to to the tv.

Your FE 29 has an inverter that powers the tv and the outside refer. Mine is under the bed with a remote panel by the front stairs close to the floor.

There are many good tools for learning about adding solar to RVs. Most reputable companies will have links on their web site. Choose high quality components and youíll be fine. I chose to use Renogy and Iím very pleased. I installed a single 80W panel as my only interest is in maintaining my coach and chassis batteries while in storage. I chose a 20A MPPT controller and bigger wires so that I can add another panel if I ever see a need. Probably will as itís cheap and hereís no real downside to having more than you think you need.

My inverter will power the inside TV. It's located with the other switches next to the steps.
