No power to T.V.S

I removed both T.V.S and checked the outlets and no power.
I removed the covers and checked for any sings of burning or being black they both look O.K.
The only reset I could fine was in the bath room and I pressed it a couple of times STILL NO POWER.
Any one with any idea's?
I could fine only one GFI.
Could use any help.
Thanks .

Do other outlets have power or is it just the TV's that don't? Are you on battery or shore power or generator? If on battery are you TV's hooked up to an inverter?

There's usually an ignition interlock on the front TV that de-powers the outlet when the ignition switch is on. Also, most TVs are wired to operate off the inverter so you might want to make sure there is not a tripped breaker/fuse in the inverter circuitry somewhere.

TVs get their power from the inverter. There is a GFI on the inverter that need to be reset. The GFI will pop when going from Gen power to plug in if the gen is not shut off first and then plug into power pole

One other thing that I had forgot to add was the switch in the dash that turns the T.V. on I was relooked to take the dash apart but it seems that I have no alternative but to do just that.

P.S. Their is a switch in the dash that turns the T.V. on and off the only way I will be able to get to it is take part of the dash apart.

The switch on the dash may be just to power the radio speakers for the TV and NOT to turn on the TV

Must have missed it as I've never seen an inverter with a GFI on it. Maybe some of the portable ones have it but ZI haven't used them.

Xantrex ProSine and ProWatt inverters have GFCI on them. Like the other poster said, sometimes the GFCI trips during switchover from generator to inverter. It can be a pain.
