Thanks everyone for the replies. Glad the Ford charges everything.  ThankYou

When you drive down the road, does the Ford alternator change any of the PC batteries??

When the PC Generator is running, does that charge any of the Ford batteries?

After spending 2 more nights in the PC, the Boss DVD player over the bed is indeed 12v. The Polaroid TV with it is AC and can be powered by the inverter. No AC, No TV. 

I think we got that question covered. Many thanks.

Thanks. That seems to work.

Why in heck doesn't the TomTom automatically update to local time, based on where it is?? The satellites certainly know what time it is. My Gramin does that. I am perturbed that the TomTom doesn't.

The pilot lights on the rear TV/DVD player go out when we disconnect from shore power and go on when the inverter is turned on. Even though the DVD player looks like it should be 12V, I don't think it is but I will double check it. The TV plugs into an AC outlet in the closet behind it.

I will hunt for the inverter under the passenger bed. Thanks for the info.

I was afraid some serious  and sneaky power eaters were hooked to the inverter.

Thanks for info on powered outlets. I will check them. I know the charger is under that bed. I will have to hunt there more thoroughly for the inverter.
 ThankYou

I downloaded the latest version of Home and updated my TomTom/Eclipse II. I cannot set the time on it. It is showing me Eastern Daylight time. I would prefer it show me the local time.

I cannot even find out what model Tom Tom I have. Its serial number starts with DA which is supposed to tell me something.

Any suggestions? shrug

Our 1551 2010 is equipped with Xantrex inverter and a converter (P50 and 6012). The inverter has a control head on the wall behind the driver. When there is no shore power, and I turn it on, I get power to the 2 TV/DVD systems.
1) what else is powered by the inverter?
2) where is the inverter physically located?? The converter is under the curb side bed.  shrug
