We have a new Sunseeker Class C.

 

To play a DVD it goes into the radio in front. when you release the parking brake, the DVD stops but the tv stays on. I have a DVD player that is 12volt. i have tried to hookup the DVD to play while driving. the TV is above my head on a swing out from the over head bunk. do i have to play with the box that controls all the TVs to get it to work. I have connected it into the second component with on luck. I must be missing a step that someone must know.   

 

Thanks in advance

I am surprised the TV stays on.  Most TV's in front of the driver in RVs are set to turn-off when the ignition is turned on.  I guess when you release the parking brake, the DVD is set to turn off.  Usually the TV will shut off when you turn on the ignition.  Safety function to keep driver from being distracted by TV while driving.

You need to find live 12 volt power source when ignition is on and park brake is released.  Is you DVD player a standalone unit?
