Is this helpful?

I see SuperSonic mentioned already, but maybe their viewing angle is NG? On the road now so detailed look-see later.

Lumatic please report on the Axess 24 when you can.

Thanks,

Peter

Try looking at a well stocked truck stop. They have a good selection of stuff that works.

I bought two tvs from BB their house brand insignia IIRC. The power supply converts 120VAC to 12VDC. Trailer has 12VDC plugs at both tvs locations. Found adaptor plug it works direct plug in.

Hi

The one thing to be careful about is that 12 volts isn't always 12 volts. The magic power adapter on your computer or TV likely puts out something like 11.5 to 12.5V when it's running.

In your RV, you shut everything down when the battery hits 12.1V. Normal charging in an RV can easily get the power line up to 14.6V. If you have something exotic like T-105's it should get up to 15 or 16V.

So how happy is the television with a 14, 15, or 16V input? Who knows? The guy or gal who designed it was expecting 11.5 to 12.5 volts ....

One alternative - people do make DC/DC converters that will take in the RV battery power and put out a nicely regulated 12V on the other side.

Posting this as I recently got a new TV for my camper.

I couldn't believe how hard it would be to find a decent TV. Like someone else above mentioned, it really seems to be a very small market.

I found mine through this site here: https://mycamperfriend.com/12-volt-tv/

So far, I'm happy with my purchase but installing it was a bit challenging. If you're not used to or skilled when it comes to such "projects", it's probably best to have someone install it for you. In any case, I recommend getting a TV with a built in DVD player. They come in handy on those rainy days on the road. Been there.

Just purchased a little Axess tv with dvd player (13) for bedroom fold down shelf. Seems perfect, am considering a 24 one to replace toshiba in living room, would be much lighter. Several choices available at Amazon. This plugged in from the coax installed in trailer. Let us know what you decide...
