Bedroom TV blowing fuses

My 2014 33.2 bedroom tv keeps blowing fuses. The dealer said it supposed to be a 20 amp. In one camping trip we went through three fuses. Twice the TV was turned off. The other time my wife was watching it when it blew.

The fuse panel lists it as a 15 amp fuse. The dealer said it was supposed to be a 20 amp fuse. And when I picked it up. It had a 20amp fuse.

This is the DC TV and I'm blowing the automotive fuses that protect that circuit.

Any ideas or things I should check?

Thanks!

If it blew when the TV was off, it sounds like a short, not excessive power draw. Check the TV back for it's rated watts and amps. If it's within the 15 amp range, then the service center is not dealing with the real issue. It's always unwise to just increase the size of the fuse, overheated wires or a fire could result.

You could also check the manufacturer of the RV to make sure of the size of the fuse.
