Front Flip Down TV.

2003 Monaco Executive.
I can't get the tv on with the key on.
I have a silver box in the side panel of the fold down box, that the tv is plugged into. It has a bunch of led lights on it. I know it controls the tv power. Pulling the fuse shuts down the box and kills tv power.

Anyway to fool this box?

I would image that it's tied to ignition switch. My front TV shuts off as soon as I turn the key on. Supposed to be a drivers safety item. I would turn on the TV, then the ignition key on, if it shuts off. It's a safety feature.

There has to be a hidden relay somewhere..that when power hits it...pulls power from that box. Maybe an ignition wiring diagram would show it. Or I could just pull power from another outlet.

Use a volt meter and determine which of the wires has 12v when the ignition switch is on. Disconnecting that wire should disable the power interlock. The relay is probably inside the outlet box.

You will find that the style of plugin has additional wires going to it aside from the 110v. Simply either remove the extra wires and cap them or, replace the plugin outlet with a standard plug outlet. You should still cap the additional wires as they are for the ignition cut off system.

I've done this in two coaches so the kids could watch a video while I'm driving.
The angle of the TV above makes it almost impossible for the driver to watch it anyway so I don't know why this is switched by an ignition cutoff.

There are actually state laws regarding where the TV can be viewed while the vehicle is on the road. For instance, in Alabama, "No television viewer, screen or other means of visually receiving a television broadcast shall be located in a motor vehicle at any point forward of the back of the driver's seat or in any manner so that the driver of the vehicle can see it while in actual control of the vehicle." Or in Arizona, "A person shall not drive a motor vehicle equipped with a television viewer or screen or any other means of visually receiving a television broadcast that is either located in the motor vehicle at any point forward of the back of the driver's seat or visible, directly or indirectly, to the driver while operating the motor vehicle." I'm sure this is why these are designed to not be able to operate. If you have a rear TV, let the kids use that one. Chuck

Seabreeze , I can just unplug the tv and plug it the plug-in to the right in the entertainment center and it works. Driver can hear but not see.

Yep, that should do it!
