What Do You Have for Televisions in Your RV?

What type of RV do you have and what do you have setup for television? Do you have satellite, use over-the-air or do you use park cable when available? What brand and size television came with your Forest River RV and what are the details of any others you have?

My 2016 Windjammer 3029W came with a 42" 1080p LED LG television in the entertainment center. It's a great television.

I added another identical LG 42" LG television outside under the awning and I added a 26" LG 720p LED television in the bedroom.

Each television has its own DirecTv receiver, with the one in the entertainment center being a DVR so we can watch what we want when we want on any television.

My preferred method of reception is DirecTv which I receive using a standard dish on a tripod that I setup wherever I go. I can always find a hole in the trees no matter how dense the foliage, and it usually takes me no more than ten minutes to get setup. If, for some reason I couldn't hit the satellites, I would use park cable if it was any good and if it wasn't, I would then resort to over-the-air broadcast.

How are you setup for television entertainment?

We just have a 20" or so flat screen LCD that we got for free 10 years ago for getting Fios. It is hooked up to a DVD player and a Dish Tailgater for the 2 year old. We do not spend enough time in the trailer sitting on our butts to get anything else. We never seem to be in the trailer unless we are sleeping.

Ours came with a 24" flat screen that went out this spring. Replaced it with a 28" flat screen smart TV. We mostly camp at state parks so it's OTA reception, or yes, cable at a private park.

Georgetown XL has a large screen in the living room with satellite which also goes to the outdoor TV screen. Bedroom has a mid-size screen, but is factory wired only to the over-the-air antenna. When boondocking sometimes I wire a small screen portable to the satellite to save electricity.

40" toshiba in the living room.
32" Sony in the bunkhouse.

We're not big tv people.
Never even raised the antenna.

Don't really need to watch tv when camping.
Unless of course, it pouring outside!

Our 30WRLKIS V-Lite came with 42" toshiba in the living room.For the bed room we use a 24 inch Toshiba. Depending on cg use cable or ant for watch news and weather. We are not much in to TV as we bought the camper for camping and enjoying the out doors. If I wanted to watch tv I'd stay home and save the money not buying a camper. Later RJD

I have a 46in Jensen but I want to upgrade to a LG 49in. We use Direct TV but also sometimes park cable.

we dry camp most of the time, to get away from stuff.
so, electricity is rare and cable even rarer.

we do have a 20" tv we use on longer trips. use an inverter and the air antenna with a tv signal location app.

we don't camp to watch tv. but we do watch it some when we take extended 3-6 week trips, if we can get a signal.
