The four thermoelectric Onsager coefficients have been measured in the sliding charge-density-wave (CDW) state of Rb0.3MoO3. All coefficients except the one related to the heat conductivity display a strong electric-field dependence above the same threshold field. The off-diagonal coefficients violate Onsagers symmetry relation in the nonlinear region. The results are discussed in an interacting two-fluid model with the heat transport by the sliding CDW neglected.
