    Hi and welcome Ann and Stephen:thumb:

    There is knowledge by the bucket load on here, so someone will be able to help you soon.

    We're on the verge of buying a tv for the mh, it's terrible having to talk to the OH in the evenings:Wink:

    Cigar lighter socket may only be on when ignition is on, find another 12v supply

    welcome from us as well

    Welcome from us also.

    How are you trying to connect to the domestic (house) battery? is there a socket that you are trying to access? is it fused? and if it is have you checked that fuse. Sounds like a fairly simple issue.

    Do you know the state of charge of the house battery? is it in fact charged? you may find the actual float charge is not enough to enable the TV to start.

    Hi and welcome

    Have you tried running any other 12v equipment from leisure battery as maybe battery isnt working or could be a fuse in the 12v socket. Does all the other 12v stuff work like lights and stuff.
