Changing Standard RV TV for a smart TV?

Hi guys!
Was wandering if any one has changed the TV on an FR3 30DS from standard issued to a new SMART TV?

Networking is awesome on those.....I enjoy mine at home. You'll need a wireless router if you want to stream to it.

Thanks Trevor! I was wondering if it needs any specific electrical requirement, and if the Digital Antenna and DISH also works on it? I don't want to spend the money, and then I cannot replace it, and be stuck with the TV.

It's more designed to work with a good network connection........DISH will work fine on it and Digital Antenna is nothing more than a good UHF antenna. With a router you can stream off of your smart phone and/or laptop movies, pictures and the like.

We actually just hooked up a Smart Blue Ray/DVD player to our tv in our FR 30DS. It has 250 apps on it and you can connect it WiFi too. It cost $50 from Costo and now the kids can operate Netflix, Hulu, etc from it directly.
It even connected to my mobile hotspot so they can watch Netflix while driving down the road.

Amazon fire stick works great. The version with voice remote is under $50. Standard unit is $39

I've used chrome stick on a couple tvs works well. As long as you have a USB port on the television.

I have Chromcast, a smart TV, and smart blu ray player. All work great for streaming video etc. You will use a lot of data if you use your cell phone though. You can use park WiFi just be prepared to invest just under $100.00 in setting up your own network in your RV. You can go all out and spend about six or 7 hundred bucks if you would like to that can pick up either a cellular 4G signal or the park WiFi. The reason you want to set up your own internal network is both for security and to have all your devices on the same network. Most parks use isolation mode for their WiFi which means that your devices will not see each other on the network. I tell you all this because it doesn't do any good to have a smart TV if you have no Internet connection to use it with.
