LCD tv with generator

I have replace my old CRT tv with an LCD. Can I run this tv with my Onan generator? Is the power clean enough? MY rig is a 1999 F 53.

More than clean enough. It's probably cleaner than what you get off the shore power cord.

More than likely, the power will be fine as long as the generator is in good repair. If the voltage or frequency is off spec, it may be a problem.

I replaced both my front and bedroom old TV's with LCD's in my 96 Itasca. Both run fine on the generator.

Your new LCD will require much less power than your old CRT which means you should be able to watch it longer off your battery/inverter. It will be fine off your generator as already been stated.
