That (red or purple or whatever)wire only gets power when the ignition is on and opens the relay so you can't watch TV while driving.
Sorry, but I have to ask.
When you removed the relay did you rewire the outlet correctly. Should be black on the brass screw, white on the silver screw and (bare)ground on the green screw. If you reversed the white and black you have a direct short, since white (neutral) and bare (ground) share a common connection
