TV power source

Good afternoon all...Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. I have what seems like a foolish question, but here goes, where does the stock TV plug in? I had a Jack antenna installed right before we left on a cross country trip. At our first stop we tried to watch a little TV but it would not turn o, no power. Looked in the cabinet above the door and saw a 12 volt plug dangling and no 12 volt socket to plug it in to. I don't remember exactly but I thought there was a 12 volt socket in that cabinet but I'm not sure. I would appreciate if someone would refresh my memory. I would like to know before I go talk to the service dept. that installed the antenna. By the way we have a 2013 Solera S. Thanks

On our 2012 "S" the 12volt TV plugs into a "cigarette lighter" plug which is mounted on the front wall inside the cabinet above the entry door. Same outlet plate includes the push button and indicator LED for the antenna amp.

It should be (like the others said) right above the coach entry door, on the left side of cabinet wall. Sounds like it got canabalized when your Jack antenna was installed.

Thank you both. That's what I thought. The installer went the easy way to hook up the Jack antenna by changing out the existing panel with the 12 volt socket for the panel that came with the antenna. I guess he thought the dangling plug and no power to the TV would not be noticed...next stop to talk with the service dept. manager. The quick fix while traveling was to string a wire to the 12 volt socket near the bed. The dashboard socket is closer but I didn't want to chance running down the chassis battery.
