I had problems with my Jensen as well. Called the company, described the problem and it was suggested that it was a low voltage issue. When we returned to a known CG and plugged in, all was well.
It appears that there is a point where it will not power up if the voltage is low.
Also, a while back I had the opportunity to talk to a knowledgable electronics guy at the CES in Vegas. I asked him about RV application and he said that LED's would hold up better because they "fire" from the sides rather than the bottom and the assemblies are lighter thereby less susceptible to vibration damage. So why do RV Mfg's put LCD's in.... cheaper!
Looking at all aspects of the situation, I'm thinking that 12v LED's would hold up better to the vibration and be less likely to have a voltage issue due to the Converter.
Additionally, most converters have TVSS circuitry which will protect the high $ LED from "outside agitation". Jensen goes up to 32" and Samsung goes up to about 49".
Hope this helps.
