Outside TV

Hi all,

I know the purists in the group will pounce all over me but I am committed to putting in an outside TV. The easiest way seems to be for a shared mounting device with the inside TV, easy on, easy off. The Thule brand seems to be the easiest for that style.

My question is for anyone out there that may have done this (don't be ashamed, I know you're out there!), how have you accomplished this?

Also, has anyone put in external speakers for their stereo?

Nick

You could use a wireless speaker(s). I have an Advent which is also weatherproof.

You may want to consider something like this for your external speakers. If I didn't already have the wired external speakers that came with the A/V upgrade, I would have gone wireless (I still may). As you can see, it also will transmit a wireless video signal as well. I've been using X-10 stuff for many years, both at home and in the Airstream.

Purists? I'm a purist... pure geek.

I have often thought it would be fun to put a 32" or so flat screen in our little Caravel. There is room to let it stand on the credenza in the front of the trailer. It could them be turned around and be seen through the front window. It would fill the window. With the window open a little the sound could be heard.

Would that be cool?

Sunbrite out of California is one company that comes to mind.

Have you used this video sender? I would assume that the second TV has to watch whatever is on the first TV (I'm thinking home application here, not RV).

Yes, I have a few at home, and you are correct, unless you connected it to a separate tuner, DVD, or satellite receiver (which is what I use mine for), etc., you will be watching the same thing on both sets. The TV, or any device the transmitter is connected to, will have to have outputs (RCA type).


I bought mine several years back, and unless X-10 has changed their frequencies, there may be a downside to using this sender at home if you have a certain type of wifi, or cordless phones which transmit on the same 2.4 GHz frequency:

Electromagnetic interference at 2.4 GHz - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

A microwave oven tends to cause interference too. At home, I have all the above, but have positioned the devices such that any 2.4 GHz interference is minimized.

Considering the above, that's why I think it may work better in a camper than in the average home.

These video senders can also be connected to their (X-10) cameras so they can be used as remote monitors. The camera resolution wasn't exceptional, but was adequate enough to be used for general surveillance jobs when I was in law enforcement.

If you need any further information, I'm a little rusty, but would be glad to help.

No one else has an AS or Argosy with an outside TV setup?

Ever consider using a projector on the side of your Airstream?? Seen it at a rally and it works like a charm.

We have a SOB toy hauler at work that I am 'responsible' for overseeing and it has an outside mount for the TV. basically they added a second wall bracket that matches the TV's pivot arm to the exterior. All ya do is lift off the entire arm/TV assembly from the interior and move it outside.

After playing Wii golf on the 40" LCD outside of a pals Big-O-RV, I think I'm gonna do the outside TV also!
