Two questions about shades and tv

I tried a search, but gave up trying to find it and decided to leave it to the brighter minds on the site. After our last trip, I found two things that I would like to change. One is to have the front tv on while rolling down the road, and the other is some way to bypass the limit on the drivers window screen visor so it can be lowered all the way when the sun is on that side of the coach while driving. I was going to dig into it, but figured I'd ask. I'm sure someone has found a work around. Thanks in advance!

For the TV check to see where the power cord is connected. Usually it is plugged into a socket or power controller that is energized only when the ignition is off. Simply reconnect to a different power outlet, make sure you have 120VAC, and the TV should work while traveling.

As far as the shade being lowered all the way while driving will it block vision or the mirrors on that side? But what you will have to do is bypass the stop setting while in motion. It depends on the manufacturer of the shades as to how this can be done.

I never lower mine lower than the top of the side mirror because I want a clear view of that mirror, but it can be done by lowering the shade before you turn the ignition on.
