I tend to lean towards a 120VAC TV and a small 100-150 watt inverter, sure you will loose about 10% efficiency in conversion losses in the inverter, but that is a small price to pay for the much better selection on 120VAC TV's. In reality you may break even or even gain if you get a newer more power efficient design in the 120VAC TV vs a 5 year old design on the 12VDC TV.

Thanks for all the great and fast replies, love this iRV2 group.
I'm going 120, we may boondock briefly, more as we get comfortable with the MH, and TV is certainly not a must have. No TV signal without satellite in northern Ontario where we are and most campsites we have started looking at across Michigan and Wisconsin will have power so the DVD player will come into play. Thanks again everyone, can't wait for our ten feet of snow to melt away.

My current 120 volt TV uses 96 watts, I'm look at a similar 12 volt TV that uses 65 watts.
