I am just wondering if there is anything special for an RV TV. (other than they are fairly cheap).
There nothing special let temperature sable or whatever.
Just wondering seeing as our TV just blew up and no longer works so will be looking to get another .

No, there's nothing special about the TV;s used in RV's. I;ve noticed a lot of rv manufacuters are using Vizio, which is super cheap (Costco).

One thought on the cheap TV. Agreed, it is nothing special or made for RV use.

Ours is rather basic, but it has a built in DVD player. No need for a dedicated unit with wires dangling from the wall where the TV is mounted.

We buy a mittfull of the cheapo 5 dollar DVDs from WalMart, break out the popcorn or chips and beverage of choice, plug the movie into the side of the TV and sit there and enjoy.

Redbox allows you to rent in one location and return in another, we took advantage of that when the kids were smaller and rented about 20 DVDs in the Florida Keys and returned half in Tennessee and half in Ohio, best $30 I've ever spent.

Don't forget some library's have DVD's as well. Where my seasonal is I can't get over the air tv. With a subscription to the local library I get the movies rent free (limit 3 at a time). TV'S should not be turned on when cold until the RV warms up of a winter. Condensation forms and can damage the tv.

My biggest problem was that the shape of the televisions has changed. I had a large, almost square inset that the original TV filled. I matched the width with the new one and still had open space in the top one third of the opening.
