I bought an Insignia TV/DVD combo from Best Buy. It has a power brick like a lap top that converts 110v to 12v. I purchased a separate 12v plug for it so now Incan use it either way.

Is there a 12v outlet where the tv is mounted?

We have a 2016 23ws. The electrical outlet and cable are already on he wall in the rear bedroom. I bought a Samsung 19 inch which I think s big enough for that room.

My question is why buy a tv with the 12v adapter, if there's no 12v cigarette outlet near where the tv is located? They're more expensive that a regular tv.

He was saying you could use the tv like a laptop, it has a battery pack just like a laptop, you could watch the tv while dry camping by running off the battery in the tv, i wonder if it would come with a 12 volt charger to charge it from the port in the camper

Sorry for the misunderstanding, the TV doesn't have a battery. It has one of those bricks on the power cord like a laptop does. Most TVs I have purchased just had a cord. It got me curious and when I researched it I learned I could buy a 12v cigarette style plug for it.

I just purchased my IKSS but on my previous Pop up I wired a few 12volt cables.

I didn't purchase a "12v" TV from an RV source. This was like a 20" TV/DVD combo from best buy for around $180 if I remember correctly. Most combos are hard to find and a little more expensive.
