Newbie question on TV

Can't seem to get any power to play DVDs on both TVs in my new interstate? Everything is plugged in and the battery is good. I read the manual and it doesn't mention anything about this... What am I doing wrong, Any thoughts? Thank you

On a side note I can power everything else in the Interstate, just NOT the TVs... It's driving me crazy because I'm sure it's a simple thing to fix...lol

To be more descriptive, I want to play DVDs while I'm driving for my passengers to watch... But i can't seem to get any power. Thanks for any support I get from the Airstream Interstate community

It is a safety feature to prevent distracted driving.

When you shift from park the dvd will not play.
A car audio store can install an adapter which allows the dvd to play in drive.

I believe the last post is referring to the in dash unit, the TV's will play DVD's anytime. One possibility is to check the 110 receptacle on the wall behind the drivers seat, you may have a tripped GFI and just need to reset it.

The GFI tripped on me too and it took me a while to figure it out. As soon as I reset it the TV's would work again.
Hope it is that easy for you too. Good luck.

Interstate1, you must have your inverter set to ON for the TV's to work when you are not plugged into shore power or running the generator.
