This sounds discouragingly unwieldy as procedures go, so I perhaps should have noted that our original system had been a 110 volt arrangement in which my husband had to surgically remove a transformer because we switched to a 12 volt
DC television. The original system did not make a lot of sense in the way it was laid out, perhaps owing to the age of our vehicle. Not everyone who wants to go with free-over-the-air TV will need to go to these lengths.
