You're exactly right. I just went out and tried it and the TV came on fine without the motor running. This is really irritating, because I'd seen this somewhere before so I specifically asked the salesman if we could watch TV while driving and he said yes. He also said we could pop some popcorn too, but that's not happening. I'm having trouble figuring out just when I would be using this inverter. Thanks for your quick response and help!
Mike

OK, another question. Our Redhawk drives OK, but not great. From things I've read, I know it can be better. Added Hellwig rear sway bar and that has helped when towing. From things I've read, the next steps might be front sway bar, steering stabilizer, shocks, alignment....Looking for recommendations specific to this unit - what you've done and used that has made the most difference. Thanks! Mike

Several topics recently about handling, mostly seems to be a caster adjustment that helps. Do a search here to find the posts.

It's called your Federal Government at Work. It powers off so the driver is not distracted by the TV. Easy fix.

Here's the link. https://www.jaycoowners.com/forums/sh...ad.php?t=11021
Also the reason it only powers one outlet is the battery will not support a bigger load since it would go dead too fast.

PS: Never listen to the salesman, tell them to show you how it works.

Grumpy is spot on... not to say that the salesman lied, but some of them are very "under informed". Always make 'em show you!

I really do think he was "under informed". We didn't even ask about the inverter. He was so excited that we had it and told us all we could do with it. Guess I should educate him a bit.
