An LCD and LED are the same thing except how they are back lit. The LEDs are back lit with of course LED lights. Therefore they are much lighter, use less power and run much cooler. Most LEDs, at least the smaller ones, are 12v and have a wall wart (small converter) on the end of the plug to use house current. I have 2 LEDs in my coach, I just cut the warts off and hardwired into a 12v circuit.
You want your solar panels wired to charge your batteries, then run your 12v items from your 12v coach circuits. You certainly do not want to run a TV directly off a solar panel(s).
