Hey well on my outlaw 29h does not have this style outlet ther relay it is cutting out is the one you use when you depress the rocker switch for allowing your house batteries to give power to your engine batteries. Once I find more time I can trace the Rolex more and see how this relay is to help if the wires back into the coach.

Once you get your TV up and running out on the road: tune in to "Cops".
You might just see yourself on TV, as they close in on you...

That's what they make shades for.

this interest is for the passengers not the drivers.

you like to drive slower than posted speed limit which is your choice and others want to have a tv on for their passengers...not sure who's gonna create more of a pain on the road?

No doubt: it'd be me!
But inside distractions would never be a problem!

Sure, but nobody said this was for your coach.

But your right a person talking to you or the radio sound is different from tv sound.

So I guess that it's still okay to pop in my favorite "motorized playlist":
"409"
"Hot Rod Lincoln"
"Radar Love"
"I can't drive 55"
and the turnaround song:
"Mas Tequila!"

You can't have it both ways bob. you say noise is a distraction but your lawerence welk on 11 is ok?

i see how you have 2100 posts. i wonder how many of them you had actually contributed with info and not goofy opinon

have fun continuing being off topic because this sting we've had has not contributed to how to get a tv to work in the coach while driving and not sure about you but that answer is why i came to this thread.

we are all intitled to an opinion and seeing yours is you feel we are breaking the law and putting your life in danger by driving with a tv on in the coach so yes saying it once is acceptable but wasting time saying that in a round about way multiple times like a pesky fly only accomplishes annoyance and this forum my guess is trying to accomplish contributions that solve problems not create them.

not sure if you are aware of the thor outlaw 29j, but that has a tv on the bathroom wall and i wonder if it works? if it does go find some owners and tell them(bother) that they are risking your life and will be movie stars on cops

May not be to your liking, but New York Times article on distracted driving reports 39 states prohibit TV in view of the driver when engine is running.

I notice you are new to the forum, it is standard practice here to avoid personal attacks when replying to posts. ...Thanks.

As "Hooli" mentioned: this may be in response to what those 39 States have legislated.

My thor ACE 30.3 has 3 TVs. The bedroom and the outside one work on the inverter. The 32 in the kitchen does not. Of course on shore power or generator they all work. Have not tried it in motion.

If it was the distraction they are worried about I would not be able to go anywhere with 4 kids in the back screaming. TV will keep them occupied.

i do understand why they prevented it from working and you're right, i disagree with the reasoning.

Ok.

You're welcome.

You have to unplug tv and plug in elsewhere. I plugged in above dinnette
