TV replacement. Has anyone?

Has everyone replaced their main TV.
Asking how they hooked it backup due to the fact the power wire is not a normal plug I'm sure you know what I'm talking about.
Did you have to make any special modifications or will any TV work and just use the wiring from the RV?
Also looking to replace the fuse line on the TV as it has come apart and broke.
Thanks for your time answering my questionClick image for larger version

We have replace one TV and installed a new one in the Bedroom. Both are standard TVs. We even move one from the house for outside. I would like to see what your experiencing, maybe a DC TV?

My Jensen also went bad, the sound went bad although I can still play it through the in dash radio. Used to repair tvs years ago, opened this one up, found the defective part, only to be told that the part is no longer available...

Anyway, since I do a lot of dry camping, I'd be looking to get another DC tv as a replacement.

From you photo.....I see it is a Jensen brand TV.

Most Jensenís are 12v DC, so this is the power cord youíre probably seeing. If you really really donít need to have a working TV off 12v (dry camping or boondocking) trace the power cord back and you might even find a 110v outlet nearby and then you can replace it with any TV.

If most of your camping is with hookups - electricity, a 115 volt AC tv would work and more reasonable cost wise. Another 12 v DC TV would be best if you do a lot of dry camping, although they are more expensive, and some claim they are "usually" built more ruggedly to take the vibrations experienced in an RV.

We just did a remodel on our wicked kitty. 32 RCA was mounted with a TV mount to a wall. Keeping fingers crossed this will work. We have one strap across the front to hold it in place and keep it from moving to much front to rear. Hope the side to side possible wobble will not break the screws out of the back of the TV. If we have trouble access to the back of the wall is possible so we can screw it directly to the wall.

TV

Teaman here. .................... I bought a 2nd hand Sunseeker 2300 about two years ago. Had a big Jenson swinging from a wall mount (attached to cabinet side), above the entry door. By the time I got it home the big TV had pulled away from the wall quite a bit and was sagging on the far corner. I think the mounting screws had partially stripped out. Then after fully checking everything out, I discovered that the big TV would quit playing after five to ten minutes. After turning it off for awhile, the thing would turn back on OK and play another five or ten minutes.

I removed the big TV and figured out where to install another one. I saw a fella's video online that gave me an idea. He had a 24 foot class C (not Sunseeker) and he mounted a 24 inch TV on a swinging wall mount between the booth and the driver's seat. Looked ideal to me.

So I built a support stand and a shelf for DVD player, etc behind and to the wall side. Installed a small fixed wall mount facing the dinette booth. And installed a 24 inch flat screen TV (115vac model). Powered by a power cord plugged in at the upper door area and run down the wall and behind the front cab seats to the new TV stand. If dry camping, I got a little 150 watt power inverter (?) Only tried with computer so far. Seems to work.

Also, recently installed another TV wall mount on the bedroom wall (by the fridge). Installed a removable shelf for DVD player. Can be removed to access the mattress fully.

That original big Jenson TV was in the wrong place for me for easy viewing. Up high in the loft bed area and also it occupied way too much space up there.

Now that its gone, I have way more storage space (badly needed on a 23 footer).

So yes - it is doable.
