Uses 12V signal from ignition to "lock out" the 120V to television, for those who would otherwise try to watch Oprah while driving.

Could be the circuit that keeps you from watching TV while the RV ignition is on.

Yes, I have my VCR plugged into that outlet (came that way). The TV is connected to the regular outlet. Guess I shouldn't be changing tapes (do they still make them?) while I'm driving.

Note about moving the TV's plug to a regular (not interlocked) outlet:

If you decide to run the TV so the kiddies can watch cartoons or something while you drive, Even though you are not looking at the TV and it's not distracting you.

Should you have an accident.. or should a Law Enforcement Officer pass you.. You may be in for a hard time..

LEO, if he sees the front mounted overhead TV on should pull you over and ticket you (I mean it's his job to do that)

Accident... You might get charged with "Reckless Engangerment" in a civil curt, that can run many hundreds of thousands of dollars (I'd ask for a million myself)

OF course....... I"m not saying this WILL happen.. but it can.. and in some cases has. I know for a fact that tickets have been written for television where the driver could see it (I had to give the trooper the chapter and verse (Section/sub section) to fill in on the ticket, since the ticket is not valid without that info)

Thankfully, the reason I know that.. Is the reason I still get paid every month, and not something that cost me money.
Home is where I park it!

It'll be a coupla days, as I recently inundated Linda Cain, Webmistress for the ACA Tech Library, but look soon for the two page manual on the Lok-Out 12V/110V outlet. Look under House Systems. I believe this is the same in all Alpine model years.
