Mark1 you should be able to run the dash dvd player to your main Tv while driving using Jenson VM9726BTC. Video wont appear on dash screen but willrun on TV. See VM9726BTC instruction sheet (1).pdf. Video on dash only when parked and emergency on

My unit is the same as yours, 3050s, the Jensen plays DVD & CDs, & a lousy NAV system. The only thing you can't do while driving is watch the movie on the in dash screen. It will play to the other TVs depending how it's wired. A little birdie explained to me that there is a ground wire from the player to the emergency brake switch. NTSB or one of those alphabet agencies requires it for "safety" so drivers don't watch the movie while driving. It shows it on the wiring diagram in the owners manual. I'm electrically challenged so I don't know how to trick it out??? So can't help with that part, hope to figure it out next season.

In many states is illegal to have an operating TV where the driver can see it while in motion.

I agree tv while driving is an accident waiting to happen. In driver view of course.

Whatever you decide, I would say don't be afraid of running the generator while driving. It sips fuel, and if you are traveling in hot weather, really helps keep the caning cool. not to mention keeping your refrigerator, microwave, potable water and lavatory in action. Ours has a DVD player on the middle TV, which we use while driving. What I do on a long uphill grade,, is turn off the engine driven A/C.

DoctorT68, me again....

Go pick out a small blue ray player (most have backward capability for the old dvds) check the amp load (1.0 amp would surprise me) or watts. Determine how you want to feed the tv as I dont think it has hdmi. I would strongly consider a xbox with the dvd capabilities, the kids would freak.. Then go get a cheap (25 bucks) 12v to 120 inverter from any car part shop that exceeds the load by about 30%.

Dang...Now I want the xbox....

At my step area of my SunSeeker there is an inverter switch that powers my TV. I have a DVD,VHS player in cabinet near TV. Can watch from couch when driving. Not driver!

Did it come with an inverter and switch? Did you install one aftermarket.

The Jennsen TV's do have HDMI feeds on them , another idea is if you are carrying a laptop with you just load some movies up on it and run it through the TV. ( Hopefully the laptop battery is good)
