I included a 12v cable in an Amazon purchase a couple of days ago. I'll get it next week and will report. I didn't even think about this capability when I purchased the TV. I just wanted the largest TV to fit on the fridge wall and the DVD is nice. I've ripped out the Sony radio/DVD head in the overhead cabinets. I've ordered a Riva Turbo X bluetooth speaker to connect via its Aux input to the 3.5mm audio out on the TV. The Riva is $300 but reviewing all the BT speakers on youTube this one fit the bill for us for sound quality, battery life, size and looks. I can pair with it to play back our music from our phones and other devices. The Airstream speakers are behind pleated curtains and will be left in place. The large hole in the cabinet will be patched with thin plywood sheeting and then painted. Pretty much doubles the storage in that cabinet now. Now we only have to deal with one remote for TV, DVD and audio levels.

FYI, most LED TVs work on 12-14v internally and have a converter inside the casing. You will also discover Samsung and LG makes a few models under 24" which have the 'AC Adpater' in the cable which can also be used in a trailer by bypassing the wire.

I purchased this 12v cable from Amazon a few days ago and received it yesterday. I tried it out and it works on my Insignia 28" LED DVD Combo. I didn't try built in DVD player but the TV powered up and displayed a picture. I only ran it for about 10 minutes.

Because of this thread I purchased the 32 inch Insignia LED TV's at Best Buy (12 volt model) Along with a 12v Sony Sony Blue ray player. I also included a Netgear Network Switch that runs on 12V along with a WiFi Camp Pro Antenna that drives the system. It will pull in WiFi from a mile away. Now I can be on my laptop surfing the net, watching Netflix and have my phone on the network all at the same time. All with out a invert-er.

Oh by the way I have the sound pumped thew the tailor sound system that includes a sub. I can hardly wait to take it for a spin.

Thanks every one for the input. FYI if you get the chance The WiFi Camp Pro is well worth the 100.00.

Note, the 12v plug has only a 3amp fuse. My 28" Insignia is rated 4amps and the 32" is 5amps. Hopefully you won't have an issue with the fuse.

Is there really enough bandwidth on a typical campground Wifi network to support streaming video? How would that work if everyone tried to do it?

KJ,, most of the time the "rated" watts or amps is higher than running amps.. The rating on the 22" was like 45 but when i check it with watt meter it was only 22-25 watts.

unless the wires on your 12v plug is real small 22ga it should be fine for 4 amps.

aquinob,,, I would bet there is not a lot of places that provide "free" wifi that is robust enough to stream movies for more than one person at a time, not counting all the folks looking at facebook, words with friends etc..

if you want to stream movies get a mifi (jetpack) from verizon and a $200 a month data package and stream on dude. (no free lunch there)
