As well as the tee shirt with the definition of the engineer, "A person that takes a concept, and produces malfunctions.." Or words to that effect.

If you can't laugh at yourself, you are in bad shape.

The local Walmart (Superstore!) didnít have anything approaching the small size we want for a screen. I looked online at some models. Can anyone recommend a good set with a 12-inch (or so) screen? One with a DVD feature would be good.
Upon further trailer examination, Mr. Thorough discovered this additional jack fixture in the bed area, presumably for a TV there as well.
And, hereís also a shot of my antenna. Looks like Iíll have to get the extra bit to get UHF, but I can experiment with this for a while?

Depending on the distance from the transmitters you may find it works fine. I am 70 miles from the transmitters serving the Orlando area and I got them fine before I got the Wingman. When I added it the signals were stronger in that the pointing was less critical, and I got signals from the West Palm area, around 100 miles away, but not consistently.

You could always forget the TV and just stream shows on an iPad.

That is the same as mine and it picked up digital channels as long as you are in line of sight of some transmission towers. Added the Wing Bat attachment to it improved the number of channels I can pick up. Adding the Wing Bat took less than 3 min. to do. Very easy.

I think you will have a real tough time finding a 12" TV. Most consider the 19" to be on the small side and it does fit perfectly in my 22' does not appear to be that large due to the flat screen.

Cool, I haven't had to deal with an old antenna so wasn't sure how it would do picking up digital signal. Wasn't sure if they shifted to a different frequency spectrum when the transition occurred. Makes it easier. Sounds like you just need a tv. Can't help with a 12" though. That's pretty small and probably tough to find. I'm having a hard enough time finding a good 19-22".

12 v. TV's are much more expensive than 120 v. ones. They claim the ones made for RV's can take the shock of travel better, but our cheap TV in the bedroom has survived quite well; the OEM TV has too and I doubt it was made for RV's since it is a 120 v. model. If you need TV when boondocking, you can use an inverter to watch a 120 v. TV, but batteries can be run down if you are running the furnace and a lot of incandescent lights. We have a small 120 v. cheap TV in the bedroom plus a separate inverter, but we have used it infrequently.

If you want a TV with a DVD player, remember when one stops working, you need to replace the whole thing. Our trailer has a 12 v. radio/DVD player that connects to the main TV, but when boondocking, we survive quite well with CD's or radio or reading.
