Forward TV

I'm able to switch to the auxiliary input setting on the TV above the front windshield to get the navigation to show on the big screen. When I start the rig, the safety limits shut off the TV for obvious reasons. However, the navigation unit is set from the factory at an angle that neither the driver or the copilot can easily see.

Anyone know how to jump the limit that shuts down the front tv?

The ignition TV lockout is a well know feature of motorhomes, especially to enforcement officers. And having the forward TV on while moving is rater easy to see from a passing cruiser.

The ignition TV lockout isn't a feature, it is legal requirement.

I cannot speak specifically to your system, but I can give a generality. Some head units will have a ground wire that connects to the brake system. When the emergency brake is engaged, it lets a ground flow through the system as an indicator that you are stationary. In the systems similar to this, you can bypass the safety switch by connecting this wire to constant ground. You will have to do your own research on your specific system to see if this is the case for you.
