I found a 9" A/C-D/C with VCR at Target a couple of weeks ago for $175.00. They were really snatching them up. Should work great in my Bambi.

Thumbs up

I bought a great ac/dc color13 inch TV at Camping World with a built in tape player, no DVD , just VCR.. It was a Sylvania and ran about $315 ( with President's Club discount) The reception is excellent. Picks up stations very well.. even out in the wilderness. ( a canyon in Eastern NV) we got a perfect picture. You get whatyou pay for. Good Luck

I bought one of the Broksonic TV ac/dc with vcr built in last year on EBAY from the distributor. New with warranty it was under 150.
I have used it since with no problems.See the link for example, he sells all the sizes at various times. The same unit at Best Buy was 220.

Strange, my Camping World catalogs at home show a 12 v./110 Sylvania 13" TV as well as a 13" Sylvania 12 v./110 TV/VCR combo. I had decided to buy the TV only in April '03 when the money was available but that TV was not on their website when I did a TV search.

David- the Camping world website does not show all their catalogue items. I asked when I was at their showroom about that as they seemed to have many things i could not find on the web. They said they are working on that.

2000watts and tv

Pick and all,
Why would a EU2000 "complain" on powering up a 54w t.v., and what is "deglaussing"? Shouldn't 2000w be sufficent power? I'm considering an EU2000 myself - and would eventually like to get a T.V./vcr as well.
thanks,
Marc

CW Catalog

Thanks Alan,
I saw the 13" with and without VCR in the Nashville CW store and was wondering if this was another case of me "missing the boat" again. I'll have to remember this the next time I check their site.

Lightbulb TV suggestion

Sam's Club offers a flat screen 9" monitor with VCR in a carry bag (it normally hangs from soccer mom's front seat head rest) for about $179.

The kids, 6 & 2, love the Sylvania 9" TV/VCR AD/DC in the MH while traveling or rainy days...also has built in radio tuner...I think they (actually my wife) paid $150 range for Father's Day gift.

Oh yeah, I really like it too! It goes with us on all trips in the MH and even the mini-van.

Wink reality check

Since we are all talking about "top of the line" AIRSTREAMS, shouldn't we be talking about those sweeeeet flat plasma screen hi-definition TV's listing for about $2500? But that wouldn't be vintage now would it!!!?

DeGaussing Coil

3Ms75Argosy: When operating normally, the TV draws 54 watts, according to the sticker. But when the TV is first turned on the deguassing coil fires, and that is what makes the EU2000 complain for a second or two. Even if you are hooked to shore power, the lights dim for a fraction of a second. My 400 watt/800 watt peak inverter hesitates also when this is going on.

The deguassing coil is designed to deguass the picture tube. Ever notice on older TVs how one side of the picture tube may have a greenish or purplish tint on one side? Deguassing will clear that up, usually. Most modern computer monitors have that feature, also. Some you have to do manually, others are automatic.

12v TV

We have two FS TVs in our 28' 1981 Excell motorhome. A Samsung SyncMaster 170MP in the living area and a 150MP in the bedroom. They are 12v LCDs and draw very little power. They are also PC monitors and have multiple inputs so they can do duty as back-up camera monitors and be used for other video displays. I bought ours through PC Connection at $750 and $1,100 approx. We are fulltimers so the expense is worth it to us. We have a TrackVision system with DirecTV; visitors have remarked that the quality is better than their home TVs.

Like anything else dealing with computers, the Korean Samsungs have come down in price. The 150MP isn't even available any more and the 170MP is available at Office Depot for $449 after the $50 rebate. I believe they're closing them out, and they're a pretty good deal at this price.

Samsung tried the 4:3 151MP and 171MP with higher HDTV capable resolution (and the tuners were optional), but it looks like these have been pulled from production as well. There are still a couple of Korean 4:3 17" LCDs with 12V available at MicroWarehouse for about $500, but the names of the manufacturers aren't common.

The hot ticket now is the $1000 16:9 17" Japanese Sony LCD that does HDTV 720p and 1080i. It doesn't have a tuner because as with the HDTV Samsungs, they expect NTSC and ATSC tuners to be in the sat receiver, such as Sony;s HD200. It doesn't have a 12V input that I can find.

LCD displays can be great for having a larger picture while 12V boondocking. Most, like the low res 640 pixel Panasonic are WAY overpriced. I suspect that will change this year.
