Red face New TV??

Picking up our new E21 this spring and planning on ordering a 12volt TV/DVD combo to have installed on pickup day. What brands do you all like? Hate?

I'm assuming you are not planning to use your TeleVision as a Tow Vehicle.

My Oliver had a 12 volt Furion TV with a separate Furion DVD player. The player failed in a very short time and I replaced it with a cheap generic 120 volt model that I ran on a cigarette lighter inverter. The new one worked better in every way and was only about $30.

My new HQ19 has a Scepter brand TV with built in DVD player. I don't like it for watching movies. It will suddenly go to low resolution and/or get the sound out of time with the picture. This seems to happen in just about every movie. Very annoying. And it is not Blu-Ray, which seems to be a good thing to have. The Scepter is also not 12 volt, so the on-board inverter must be on to run it.

When you find one you like, please report back with what it is.
I only exaggerate enough to compensate for being taken with a grain of salt.

Read the various reviews on Amazon. When I was looking, they all had issues. In the end, we just don't watch TV when camping. #1 common complaint is sound level (lack of). I added a small sound bar to solve that problem.

Our ďTVĒ is a tablet with a small Bluetooth speaker. Doubles as a rear seat entertainment system on the road. Content is pre-loaded from our streaming accounts. For news we use the tow vehicle radio, and weíre not big sports consumers. Like Bill we donít watch a lot of video entertainment when weíre camping, but itís nice on a cold, windy, and/or wet evening when a campfire or walk under the stars doesnít appeal. Table games followed by a movie with popcorn.
