I have the standard Airstream issued Samsung TV in my Bambi Sport 16. I would like to be able to watch TV on the occasional times that I boondock. That means going through an inverter in order to use the supplied 14v/ to 110v 35Watt power Samsung power brick. (They don't have a direct 12v
cigarette type plug, I asked. I also can't find a 3rd party adapter since the Samsung plug is 14v / nonstandard.) That leaves me with this possible solution.
First off, I would need to get this wall plate power supply that has the antenna booster and a 12v
2nd, I'd then use this 75w Bestek inverter.
When running this idea past the RV service guy I would use to install the face plate, he advised against it saying it was way too inefficient to convert 14v to 110, then back to 14v to run the TV. It would drain my battery. He went through the math that would require the conversion to work and questioned whether the wiring would even support that conversion. Is he right? If he is, then the only alternative (if I want to watch TV while boondocking) would be to replace the TV with a 12v
I've read posts where people have done this, so I am wondering is it advisable or no?
