Very Odd

TVs turn off for no reason. Of course it is in the middle of a scene you are really into. That being said nothing else seems to be effected. AC keeps running strong and I have noticed no other effects. This happens on both Sekis as well as my Samsung. I am thinking voltage drop but nothing else seems to be effected. I am in a Thor 29FE. Any helpful thoughts?

That is rather odd since nothing else seems to be affected. I replaced our Seiki TVs with Samsung, the auto off feature was set to two hours, I turned it off. Donít know if that is your problem but wonít hurt to check.

Definitely not a description of my problem. Example last night my wife was watching the Samsung in the bedroom and I the Seki in living room. Both turned off at the same time. This morning the outside Seki just turned off after about an hour. All TVs start right up with a push of the remote. Gremlins? I am in a campground where I have never camped before and have camped many times before with no such problems. Hence the Very Odd caption.

Are they on an inverter? It almost sounds like they didn't switch from inverter to shore power and were still on the inverter, or something happened at the transfer switch. They would be on the "entertainment" circuit for TVs unlike the AC, microwave, etc.

Sorry my first motorhome and do not understand well all the electrical troubleshooting. I can read a multimeter but whether it an inverter, converter, or reverter(LOL) I am just not sure. One day when I retire may I will have the time to figure out all the boxes and switches. BTW the outside TV just shut down again and had to be restarted. Wife is still sleeping or I would be out in nature. TV is not a priority but thanks for your input and all helpful information is appreciated.

These things seem to all come with a whole bunch of remotes that'll operate any and all of the TVs... Could one of the "unaccounted-for" remotes have a button being inadvertently pushed?

Could be but I think many remotes are IR and need line of sight to work. Also never having the problem before makes me think not. Additionally tried to turn outside TV off with inside remotes and only worked when in line of sight. That being said I concluded my test sat down to continue watching and the outside TV turned off. WT?

in the last week, I've had my own home's LG tv just 'go black' for no reason(powered off I suppose), and then restart on it's own a minute later....still no idea why, or any specific 'cause' since nothing else on the same circuit had any issue, especially the Sat RECEIVER, which itself is VERY sensitive to power loss/fluctuation - so I don't think it's a 'power' issue.

It IS very weird, though!

No help here, sorry : /

Just knowing I am not alone is helpful. Safe travels!
