My 08 v-lite Flagstaff came with a Venturer 12v flat panel digital TV, and it is wonderful!
GONE is the snowy picture and extremely limited channel selection. In my yard here in Jax. Fl, I get about 20 CLEAR channels. When we go camping, we can watch surround sound digital tv on BATTERY power, (great for weekend football games), or watch a DVD movie. You also MUST have a digital antenna, which came standard on our camper.

You can also get virtually any TV and power it with an inverter.
WalMart had small "cigarette socket" type inverters for $20 the
last time I was in there..... a couple weeks ago.
By "any TV" I am assuming you get LCD and not old picture tube.
We actually used to run a small picture tube TV off an inverter but
they do tend to use more of your batteries.
Small to medium size LCD TVs seem to run around 40-50 watts.

"Plug In" Inverter Question

My TV is a 19" HD/LCD,the power consumption is listed as 51W.I would like to power it with a "cigarette socket" plug in inverter.I've read that plug in inverters over 180W should not be used because the wiring to the outlet is not able to handle anything higher.I have read reviews of people using 300W plug in inverters without any apparent problems.I believe I could use a 175W plug in for my TV and it would be adequate,however I would like the flexibility of the 300W if it doesn't pose a safety hazard.Any advice? Thanks
