We use are tv alot for sports also listen to music stations on direct so no radio is needed. I put a 32 inch in my Georgetown on a mount that swings out to have full use of storage compartment. It cost me less then $300 to do it myself.

Keep the TV inside! Unless your wearying headphones.

Opinionated -and- demanding! Traveling around the country in an RV is WHATEVER someone wants it to be, not what YOU decide or dictate.

I enjoy my outside TV and inside 4 more then meeting others. Especially when a NASCAR race is on or fishing(DirecTV music up loud). And Full Time when in a area more then a month. Seen everything I'm interested in & done that already. Through the week days there is no neighbor within hearing distance on either side or across from me. And most weekends if not a holiday.

...Isn't it interesting how some folks love to prescribe what everyone else is supposed to do, like, not do, and otherwise live their lives? Some of us like our outdoor entertainment areas, some of us want to sit in quiet, some enjoy visiting with passer-by's, others prefer solidarity. To each his or her own. I like my entertainment center and enjoy it responsibly. I keep the volume respectfully low, but if others still don't like that I'm enjoying mine, well, that's not really my problem.

In the spirit of the OP's original post... I suspect that RV manufacturers do very little unless they think it helps to sell their products. It must be that those entertainment centers are attractive to the average RV buyer, else they'd stop putting them in.

After all, you don't see RV's out there with water fountains in the kitchen, or a bobble heads of Abe Lincoln mounted on the dash boards. But if people would buy that kinda thing, you bet they'd be on the 2016 models!!

Fortunately very few RVers share that selfish opinion.
Most care as much about their neighbors enjoyment as their own.

JohnnyB Again.

Perhaps I was misunderstood!

If I am outside enjoying the sunset, I don't want to listen to your TV 20 feet from my patio.

Do whatever you want, just keep the volume such that it does not disturb others.

Is that too much to ask?

Or is it OK to intrude on others desires?

Using the outside tv is no different than doing anything else outside that makes noise, including kids yelling and running around and atv's and motorcycles or radios and everything else.

As with all things used outside nearby other people. Consideration is given to noise levels and avoid interfering with others enjoyment. This is called Common Sense. and Freedom to do what we want is why we like this lifestyle. To each his own.

Cheers!

alpha99 nailed it.

Be considerate of others.

Others may not share enthusiasm for football, NASCAR, pulling into a campground at 11pm, etc.

Mel--It's interesting how you conveniently left out the text immediately before the portion of my post that you quoted in your rant. Perhaps you missed where I said:

"To each his or her own. I like my entertainment center and enjoy it responsibly. I keep the volume respectfully low, but if ..."

If you're going to call people selfish for their statements, then you might want to at least provide the full quote.

As I said.. I'm respectful of my neighbors when I watch my TV. In fact, I'd be surprised my neighbors could even hear a program that I'm watching. Under those circumstances, if someone else (i.e. you) wants to be grumpy, jealous, or otherwise upset that I'm enjoying my RV in a respectable manner, then the problem is theirs (*yours!*), not mine.

Haven't needed one for 21 years until last weekend. Since we don't have one on the new rig, we just sat inside. Others use it all the time, especially if they tailgate or have children.

Is that what it is about...winning? You have held a VERY narrow view in the posts you have made on this subject including trying to define for others what RVing is all about...maybe you should write a book on proper RVing Etiquette.

I am seldom one to get preachy about tolerance as I am very tired of the PC-tolerance-for-everything that is constantly being slammed down our throats on a daily basis. But, in your case, I'll make an exception. You evidently, at least on this subject, need to lighten up and realize that not everyone subscribes to your particular world view.

Back on topic...I will have an outdoor entertainment center in my next rig and depending on the location, time, etc. will dictate how loud I play it.

Another "winner"!
BTW, I don't have an outside entertainment center to "share" with other campers.... but I do occasionally leave both my patio light and my running lights on all night for the "enjoyment" of others.

Good, makes it easier for me to not trip when I am walking through your campsite. ;-)
