I'm guessing they would be fighting each other, and I'm not sure who would win, which is why I would NOT recommend it. I suspect MOST of us disconnect the TV before plugging in the shore power when setting up, and vice versa when tearing down.
I installed a relay on the TV aux power wire to my 7-pin conector, with a switch on the dash so I can turn it off if I want to. My concern is stopping somewhere with the trailer (park, museum, whatever), being gone for several hours, and coming back to find out something in the trailer drained my TV battery dry. (All you need is some kid to pull the emergency brake pin and you're screwed.)
