Bedroom missing TV. Is there special tv that must be purchased for 5th wheelers?

On the 5th wheel we are thinking of purchasing, the bedroom is missing a TV. There is a cable hook up above dresser. Is there special tv that must be purchased for 5th wheelers? I saw one site talking about 12V TV's.

Also when going thru walk thru/PDI how can you check to see if cable hook up works without a tv there?

simple answer no. any tv that fits. That could be a problem. Many are 19" and they are getting hard to find.

Measure the space and go have fun shopping for one that fits. Use your normal due diligence as to what brand etc. There s/b a 110 outlet and cable near where the TV sits and if so then you are good to go.

That depends. Any ol' TV will work, if you're in a campground and have 110 v power hooked up. But if you're dry camping (no hook ups), you might want to be able to watch some TV, which would mean a 12v/110v dual powered unit. Not too difficult to find. Biggest problem is finding one small enough to fit the space.

I understand that plasma TVs don't travel well.

During walk through, the only way to test is with the TV antenna and cable hooked up and a TV there; that's it.

If you camp with full hookups then any TV will work. If you dry camp a lot then a 12V TV might be better. But with dry camping you can just use an inverter to power the TV. OTOH since you're inquiring about a TV then you probably don't dry camp so any TV will work. In fact the TV's they put in 5'ers and TT's are of lesser quality than what you can get at BestBuy/Walmart or Target, etc. Buy any TV such as a Sony , Panasonic, Toshiba, etc. Led takes less power.

For the 12 volt TVs. Look at your choice or store with them on display and see if any over them have a 'wall wart' (transformer at the plug) if they do chances are they are actually 12 volt. Look at the output of the plug unit.

I use a 22" Samsung and it fits both in the bedroom nook and in the basement for watching under the awning.

Is it at a dealer? If so, I would say that you want a TV installed as part of the negotiations!

I lost both of my TV's to a power surge were LCD replaced with LED if in freezing climate much nicer to leave TV's in during storage than taking them out each year
Just my 2 cents
