Power Inverter operation question.

This past weekend, my son and I were waiting in our 2005 Jayco Greyhawk waiting for the wife and Daughter to come out of the store, we had our power inverter on watching tv. Well when they came out, I shut off the inverter, fired up the engine and to my surprise when I turned the inverter on again, no power to the tv. I shut off the engine and the tv turned on again. I guess my first question, it suppose to work when the engine is on right? I suspect that it should work with the engine running.. Any ideas on what's wrong?

Thanks in advance.

Some have lockout circuits so the TV can't be watched while driving.
