Slide Lockout defeat

Is there a way to defeat the slide and TV lockout where they can be used when engine is idling?? Is there a fuse to pull to defeat it, or something else??

I'm sure they are all controlled by relay(s) that break the circuit when it senses power from the ignition switch. I can't help you with the location of the slideout relays but on my rig the TV interlock is part of the receptacle that the TV plugs into. It has the usual assortments of 120 romex wiring and two lighter gauge wires entering the box which I assume are from an ignition source. You will probably have to pull the cover and see exactly how it's wired. It's possible that that interlock also interacts with other equipment. You might be able to just cut and cap the two lighter gauge wires, only by looking at it will you be able to tell for sure. Of course there are legal issues about having TV's on while in motion and safety concerns with unintentionally opening the slides while moving.

In the left front electrical bay in the big black box you will find the fuses that control both of them just pull the fuses and every thing will work with the key on. At least in my 02 and 08 Diplomat. It will say TV lock out😎

Thanks for the answers. I read somewhere about the fuses to pull to defeat the lock outs. I will try this out and report back here.

Just disabled slides on my 2002 Monaco Executive, if yours is similar to mine you will find a black box at rear of coach in left side of engine compartment with 4 bolts holding cover, inside of box you will find a row of relays across top, relay on rights is labeled
"Disable Slides" remove yellow wire and your done.
