Outlets - when active? Precept

2015 Precept 31UL

Second year in our precept and have worked out most of the kinks. I have found some "anomalies" in the electric cables and wiring, but nothing too bad. My generator is not cooperating on our trip this week, but I'll address it when home. We're staying in RV parks so not really an issue, except while traveling. Are ANY of the outlets able to run off the battery or inverter? Is this normal, or do I need to dig into the problem? We miss being able to charge our phones and iPads.

Probably only the TV.

My 2016 Precept 35 US

If memory serves me correct the generator powers all outlets, just like shore power.

Without generator but with the inverter turned on I believe the TV outlet and maybe the outlets near the passenger seat, one beside in the pedestal and the other under the dash drawer. I recall using my cpap when we dry camped in the Safe-T-Plus parking lot in Atlanta 2 years ago so it's possible the bed pedestal outlets are powered by inverter also. I don't recall using an extension cord. Batteries were depleted in 4 hours that night.....

With inverter on the outlet near passenger seat and TV's work. Also the tv. Be careful using the dash socket near driver if stopped it may run off engine battery. Precept 31ul 2016.

2016 has a 1,000 watt inverter and 2015 only had a 400 watt. So unless it was a late model year build may only be the TV.

My TV doesn't work when the engine is on. I'll have to check the inverter.

No, there is an ignition disconnect as a safety feature so the driver is not distracted.

Here's the thread

Where is the relay located on a 2018 Alante 31P? I'm headed south in two weeks and my kids will want to use the TV on the road... My initial thought was to buy a new power cable and plug it into the wall outlets in the front of the TV while traveling and running the generator. I'd rather just disconnect this "feature" if it's not a huge pain in the ass.
Thanks!

It's usually in the outlet the TV is plugged into.

Simple social commentary here but why can't the kids read books?
