The TV In Our Motorhome Will Not Work When The Motorhome Is Running
We just bought a 2005 Coachman Concord which has TV and DVD/VHS player in coach area. Both run fine with generator power when RV is turned off. When key is turned in ignition, TV stops working but DVD/VHS player still has power. All run fine when plugged into 120 with shoreline. Why won't TV work with generator when engine is started?Protect your RV and your family while on the road: Join Good Sam RV Emergency Road Service Today and save!
ANSWER: Greetings Dianna thanks for submitting your question on our Ask An RV Question Page.
I am going to assume that you are talking about the front TV in your Motorhome. On some Motorhomes depending on the location of the front TV there is a safety system in place that prevents the front TV from receiving power when the Motorhome is running even if the generator is running.
This safeguard is in place to prevent the driver of the Motorhome from watching TV while going down the road. If you think texting is distracting while driving, try watching Dancing With The Stars while going down the road.

If you have a TV in the rear of the Motorhome it should still be functional going down the road with the generator running.
I hope this helps.
