It was on sale and only $10 more than the J5100.

Apple TV has more to offer than the built-in Samsung apps so I may use your solution.

Question. Both AC or Inverter outlets in the cabinet are taken up by the entertainment system. Are you powering your Blackbird™ 4k 4x2 HDMI with a multi-outlet extension cord?
Yes, I have the Bluray plugged into one of the outlets, and a power strip plugged into the other.

It was raining the whole time we drove to the campground. Dry on the way home, but no difference in groaning...

Container fits nicely in the bed of the Tundra, can fill up at some spigot, drive back to AS, back in, drop small pump into container and run hose to fresh water tank. Plug into cigarette lighter socket and water flows to AS. Last trip to Thunder Bay, didn't have the water container, so bought a 20 gallon garbage can and just made more trips. No lugging or lifting with this system.

That's cool - thanks for the tip!

for HL to handle ?
Is the Highlander one of the setups can am has for trying out?
Do a followup on trailer/TV combo when you have experienced some hills or mountains. Really interested in update
Andy inspected our TV before we purchased because we had expressed some concern. He was not concerned. We had a third-party receiver installed a couple of years ago for a bike rack, and he bolstered some of the under-body stuff. The highlander was not one of the setups they have to try out. I will post back when we've done more towing.
