You should create/update your signature to include your rig!

Then you should update your profile to include the same information as well...

Finally, if it is a front TV, odds are there is a box at or near the TV that turns off the TV power when the ignition is on. On my coach, it is behind/above the TV, and a bit hidden. This box may have failed, or for some reason thinks the ignition is on.

Welcome to the forum, Gene.

Is it just the outlet to the TV that is dead or are there other outlets also not working?

I don't think your problem is what nehog described as your TV is not overhead mounted where you can view it while driving, correct?

Have you already checked GFCI s and the breaker on the inverter?

Thank you for the quick response. TV in question is not to the ignition.

There are two outlets not powered. The immediate plug to the TV and the other above the fridge where the satellite system is to be powered. All other plugs are powered.

I have checked the GFI outlets and they are all powered. Breaker panel has breaker for TV and is ok as well as all 12 volt fuses.

Thank You for your reply. The TV is a wall mount in bed area so is not the ignition problem.

I'll assume you've powered the TV up from another outlet and it does work .
That you've checked all the other outlets in the area and that it's just the one not working ?
Did the TV work and one time and now it doesn't?
Do you have a multi-meter that can test 120 volt power?

Sorry , but we're not there beside you , you have to tell us everything you've tried .

Just took our rig out of storage and discovered the inverter has indeed a breaker and that was the cause of two plugs not powered. I don't understand why it should be as such but that was the problem.
Thank you very much for the info.

Thanks for wrapping up your post , I'm glad you got things fixed.

The TV is powered through the inverter , so you can watch it when you're not at a park using shore power . Depending on the inverter , there is internal switch that allows shore power through when you plug the coach in . Some inverters also act as the battery charger when shore power is applied.
If you don't have a manual for your inverter, they are available from the manufacturer as a pdf.
