In my RV, two of the TVs are 12v so I could plug them in there. You can use it for anything you want (car phone charger?) as long as it's under 100 watts.

Sometimes a TV is 12 volt, not electric. All three of my TV's are 12 volt. I've had it where I had two TV's and one is electric and one is 12 volt.

Other than that, I haven't had uses for the 12 volt outlet. But if your TV's are electric and you want to boondock and watch TV without running the generator, you can buy cheap 12 volt TV's.

I use the 12 volt outlets for car charger for my blackberry on one and to run Sirius on the other one.
