TV purchase

With our new Shamrock we are going to need a new TV to go in it.
Does this have to be 12v? Thinking it does not but want to be sure before I do that.

Purchase a 110v tv. You'll have less problems.

W/ a 110V TV you'd only be able to use it where you had AC power (serviced site or generator).

Get a decent TV you would use at home. While you may not be able to use it if dry camping, you can certainly use it when hooked to shore power. If you live in a cold area, remember to take it out in the winter time.

great. Thought a flat screen was the way to roll. Mounting it was the next question. Any suggestions? If I dont mount it then I should I take it down and store it in a stable spot. Thanks campers

I mounted mine with a standard swivel(cheapo) mount. I remove it when traveling. Store it in the box it came in.

Hey guys, got a new TV for our camper today. It's a 19" LCD. I don't have any way of hooking my trailer up to shore power where I am keeping it now, so I would like to ask a question if I can? We will be taking it out the second week of July for the maiden.

What cable(s) do we need to watch TV from my antennae reception and also be able to watch DVD's from the concertone unit? Probably will mostly just use it for movies but would definitely like to have it so we can do both.

Any help fellas?

Cables

Most likely, you will need a Composite Video (Red, White, Yellow) cable with RCA plugs on the ends for the Concertone.

Your TV tuner, most likely, will need an RF cable with F connectors or "push on" connectors to go from the F connector on your wall amp to the TV.

I say "most likely" since I am not familiar with your setup. Photos of the connections on the back of your TV and the input/output situation on your Concertone would nail it down.

Alright here is what our camper has for tv jacks. One is for the antenna I can tell that because it has the booster button on it. The other says TV video out. That's the one to plug into to get DVD feed into the TV? Used to have a few cords doing that here at the house. Any help?
