120 v entertainment issue

I just installed a 1500 watt inverter to run my Res Fridge. Works great but int the process I bypassed the Xantrex 458. Use solar for charging. Everything works perfect except I no power to the entertainment outlets, just like when the ignition is on. Oh it's a 05 Dolphin Workhorse. I don't know what to look for.

The TV and other stuff ran thru the old inverter. AC power in, AC power out.

Did you hook the new inverter to the AC power out wires of the old one ?

No I just cut out the Xantrex and spliced the AC in and out wires back together.

On shore power it should, if you spliced it correctly, but not without shore power.

There must be a relay somewhere that shuts down the TVs when the ignition on. If I could find that maybe I could get a handle on what is going on????

In my 99 Dolphin the ignition cutout switch is in the cabinet where the TV plugs in.
