Help needed, bedroom TV dead

My bedroom TV (Samsung 22 inch UN22F5000AF) on my FC died. Airstream has gone to LG and I think I know why now, Iím not seeing a 22 inch Samsung being produced anymore. If itís larger the TV will be in the way of the thermostat.

Does anyone know what the model of the LG TV is on the 2020 Flying Cloud?

Is having an LG in the back and a Samsung in the front going to cause me problems since the back TV acts as a slave to the front when on?

Does anyone know where I could get a UN22F5000AF? Only one on eBay and parts only, screen also out.

Not sure what to do here...

Back in 2013 when the model inventory was high the 22" sold in the mid $100s. Here is a link to a seller with one still in stock:
https://www.willoughbys.com/Samsung_...el_238847.html

It might be worth installing a true 12 volt, moisture and vibration ruggedized TV depending on how you use your unit. This 28" diagonal is a mere 2 inches wider with a substantially larger image:

Oh thanks! Yeah that back TV gets a lot of wear with me moving it constantly in and out of locking position. Still donít know how going non Samsung would work out though...

I have the aforementioned Samsung model. One died a few years back and it's replacement is still going strong. I removed the converter block and wired power directly into the 12 volt which allows use without the need for 110-120 utility power - great for checking weather/news at a rest stop grabbing lunch on the road.

As regards two different manufacturer's TVs, I don't know how you are wired for signal in your trailer, but mine allows all over-the-air channels from the antenna to be available to both TVs so different shows can be seen simultaneously. If you use a satellite/cable converter box, then only the selected channel is seen on both TVs.

This is a great 22" TV that has lots of inputs: https://www.bestbuy.com/site/insigni...?skuId=6260936

To be honest a TV is a TV - nothing special about mixing and matching brands. This TV has the same universal holes necessary to screw it onto the wall mount.

Much appreciated. The mounting holes was a concern too.

TVs these days have standardized VESA mounting holes. Iím not sure how far back that goes. A new mount isn't very expensive if you have to replace it.

From my experience most of the time you are better off with different brands of TVs in tight areas. Gets rid of the problem of controlling the wrong TV with the remote.

I put a 28’ Smart TCL in my bedroom, it doesn’t interfere with thermostat
I did add a small wood block the allow the fit. Works great for me
