Have never heard or cannot see problems with the TV in regard to trailer lighting. Ii know when I did mine NO problems.
The computer is programmed for a specific voltage drop, so as long as the TV lights remain the same, trailer lights will not affect the computer.
That's why if you get a burned out bulb or replace your TV with LEDs and don't add a resistor, you might get a fast flashing in the turn signal circuit; the voltage drop is lower due to the burned out bulb or the replacement LED.
Etrailer is a great choice for LED replacement lights.
Thanks for the info. I need to replace mine because we sometimes tow at night or in the rain. I just calculated the clearance and the brake lights must draw at least 8 amps with incandescent bulbs. With my fridge drawing 13 amps on DC, I am definitely going to get too much voltage drop when towing to keep up the charge on the camper battery, much less add to it. With LEDs and making sure I have as large a wire size on the TV as practical, I might have a chance of supporting the fridge on DC with the tow vehicle.
