    I'm struggling to find somewhere to mount a TV, because the bed supports come down close to the logical place on a bulkhead.Does anyone know if it is legal to mount the TV within the drivers view, as long as it isn't switched on when driving?

    Unless it has changed, it can be mounted anywhere as long as the controls cannot be accessed by the driver OR it cannot be turned on with the ignition on

    Option 2 is simple to sort.. Just put a relay in the live feed that activates when you turn on the ignition.. simples :thumb:

    Thanks

    Option 1 is even easier as there isn't an on switch as such, so if I left the remote in a cupboard I couldn't even turn it on and it would be simple to put a switch in the living area as I need to extend the cable:BigGrin:
