Too many toys not enough ac recepticles

In the cabinet that has the hdmi switch box there is only one ac recepticle. I have a Fire tv, DVD player, and a Dish Network reciever plus the switch box to plug in. I will probably never use the DVD player, it just came with the rv. Is it safe to use a power strip for the three units? Thanks

Should not matter how many items you plug in, as long as the Cumulative amps of those items don't exceed the rating of the fuse on that circuit. IMHO!!!
