23BDS 12V tv help?

My 23BDS came with a cheap 12v tv that I hated. So i removed it and with a 120V samsung which it great except when boondocking which it us most of the time. I want to go back to a 12V Tv but i can't remember what the old tv plugged into. can someone help me out if you still have your 12v tv does it plug into a 120 outlet behind the tv then converted to 12v with a box on the cord or did the power go into to hole behind the tv then plugged somewhere else maybe behind th e radio? I just can't remember. Thanks in advance..

Why don't you just get an INverter so you can use the smart Samsung TV?
That's what many of us do.
I bought a 400w INverter and plugged it into the Winegard plate's 12v round outlet. The antenna booster button and coax connections should also be on the same plate. At least they were in my Roo 23SS.

does your Samsung have a POWER BRICK like a laptop?

if YES... you can get a cheap 12-19v converter
check your brick for the voltage needed. It will also probably charge your laptop

you still need to find the 12v wire you use to use for the TV
takes 10 minutes to setup cost about $20.00
