A lot of RV owners probably camp with hookups most of the time, in which case they probably are good with a regular TV.  A lot of time we are boondocking so we look for a TV that also runs on 12 volt DC.  We have had three of them.  The first lasted about 10,000 miles before falling apart.  The second went with our Casita when we sold it.  So I was looking for another one and came across this one that we now own.  The reason that we're excited about this one is it has a built-in sound bar and it sounds great.  We always complained about the fact that we could never hear the TV due to the fan or AC running.  This was the only DC TV with it that I could find. Can't wait to try it out camping.  Just had to share.   By the way it's an AXESS TVD1804-24. IMG_20170808_170335834-2672x1503.jpg

Thank you for sharing.  That is good information.  What inch did you buy?

Jim, the 24" is the only one with the sound bar.  I thought it might be a little big for our 195 but it's not.

Thanks Dave.  I was looking at upgrading to a 32 inch, even though it would be tight.  I have not yet measured.  However, I like the idea of the sound bar.  We currently have a 20 in. that will run on AC or 12 volt.  I guess now I am stuck in the middle, I would like a 32 in, but the sound is hard for me to hear with our 20 in. and I really like the idea of the sound bar.  Oh, decisions, decisions.  We too have a 195.  Dave, did you use a standard flat wall bracket or a swivel?

Jim, we used a swivel.  That way we could move it for best viewing.

Excellent. I have a problem though. In the bedroom where they have the TV hookups next to the tiny wall shelf, there's no DC hookups. D'oh? I have an 820R. Not sure where to tap into a light. There are lights in the pass thru storage under the bed. Has anyone tapped into them for a 12V connection for a TV? I really do like to watch the local news at night if it's available. I can always watch a movie on my laptop with a usb blueray player or one of my digital downloads (I only have a few).

Angel, look under my '12 volt outlet' under 'new topic'. I took the 12 volts off the antennae 12 volts.  Not sure why they no longer include a 12 volt outlet.

Our 12 volt outlet is in the side cubbies next to the bed. Not universally accessible! Can I get an extension cord for a 12v?

The 12v outlet could be handy to use when charging a phone.

No 12V outlet on the antenna jack because they changed from Winegard antennas, which have the 12V outlet, to cheaper Magnadyne ones, which don't. Both antennas are amplified, and the wall plate also serves to provide power to the antenna, hence the switch. I'd wager that the Winegard outlet, which can be bought separately, would work fine with the Magnadyne antenna, and also provide an outlet.

I redid the whole TV corner so all the clutter is in one place - AC outlets, TV/12V/antenna, solar, a couple of extra 12V outlets, remotes. When we're camping, the TV pivots to the left, hiding some of what you see in this picture.
