Use the bedroom TV to watch the news then a rerun of Seinfeld, front TVs for the news at 6:00. Outside TV for Superbowl parties....

Gee, I guess we watch the news a lot....

I'm not much of a tv watcher but my wife is, so both tvs get used quite a bit. She watches in the bedroom most evenings while I'm "watching" the computer. Or sometimes I pop in a DVD of a favorite concert or show. We don't have an outside tv - when we are outside we are doing other things.

I should add that we live in the RV 6-7 months a year, so any tv watching we do is done in the coach. If we were just weekending, it probably would not be used very much at all. Other things would occupy our time..

We use both the front TV and the bedroom TV almost every day ...the bedroom TV is "mine" when the DW is watching things up front I am not interested in. We also have a TV outside in a basement bay that I might turn on 3 or 4 times a year. ALL three can receive both satellite signal and digital via OTA antenna, but DW is normally the only one who uses the OTA antenna and that is on the front TV.

My bedroom tv which was an analog has been dispatched to the scrap heap. Never used it but now I put on a door over the opening and it makes a fine storage locker

Interesting replies. Thanks. At least, if the RV builders are going to put 3 or 4 sets in new rigs, all of them together won't weigh much more than one old fossil tube type. I had about 140 pounds worth before changing them out. Now only carry about 25 #.

Our front 'wide screen' is over 8 ft. wide...

When we bought 'Squeaky' in January, we made sure the TVs worked... In the 3 months we've been on the road, both have not been turned on.

Our 'wide screen' was just full of a tree silhouetted horizon with a beautiful full Moon rising in a crystal clear sky. When the show was over, we turned it off by closing the drapes. Good night travels. Bob
