    Help needed to work this one out.
    Decided to put a second 12v & areal socket in the bedroom area of our swift escape 664, so I could fit a 10" maplin TV.which is mounted on the wardrobe .
    Inside the wardrobe is the Status 530 aerial & the booster, wired up by Lowdams to some existing cables adjacent the battery box
    So plugged the aerial into the spare socket on the status booster& tapped the power off the feed to the booster
    Now the second socket only works if a 12v plug is in the main socket regardless of whether the main TV is on or off ,also if unplug the aerial on the new socket the power go's off to that socket . Any ideas>
    P.S. I have no faith in Lowdams wiring Had Phantom tracer out the other week to see why it was not notifying when it was moved,reason 2 wires not connected alo 2 attempts at mending bad connections to the booster:Eeek:

    Yup.. you only fed a live ( +ve ) to the 12v supply sockets
    You are picking up the -ve line via the aerial socket
