Anyone have to replace outdoor tv?

Our remote sensor in tv died while down at Disney in October and canít use remote anymore.

Wonder how hard it is to remove and isnit possible to go with a slightly larger tv?

There's nothing special about an RV TV in most campers, other than they are often on the cheap side. Basically, you can replace the TV with anything you like that fits in the spot you want it.

We got the camper to enjoy where we are going. If it's nice enough to sit outside and watch TV, we are doing something other than that. We have a spot for an outside TV but haven't bothered to install one.

I agree with all of that however we do use the motor coach a few times a year tailgating at football games.

Maybe my question got lost in the first post.

Since I am having to replace the tv that came std on exterior of the Legacy, has anyone installed larger than a 32Ē ? There seems to be some extra space.

replacement outside tv

We replaced our tv back in September.
It is very easy to do. I think it was four screws to remove the panel the tv is on. It is suggested to have extra hands when putting it back up though. Hint hint.
I measured the opening. I found one that would work for ours. Ours is a 2014 by the way.
I purchased a 39Ē Insigna smart tv from Best Buy. It is so much better than the junk that was in there!! Highly recommended!! We wanted the one with Roku already on it.

I would replace it with the largest one that would fit in the space, ... our Micro Lite came with a 24", ... one of the first things we did was to replace it with a 32" and would have gone bigger if it would have fit in the space we had, .... now is a perfect time to pick up a good deal on tv's, ...

In another thread someone suggested monoprice.com for tv mounts and cables. I did check the website and the prices really looked good. I didnít get one but as many as they had, Iím sure you could find one there to use. At least it might be a good place to start.

'how' do you know that the remote sensor died? maybe the remote batteries are dead.

but, any tv that works on 120v will work in your RV, regardless of where it's placed.
