You'll need a place/way to mount it, maybe cabinet work. 120V plug.

Coax/hdmi or wireless connection to existing antenna with splitter, depending upon what you already have in the RV.

Or small portable TV with battery and antenna.

Not overly difficult even if BR never had a tv, just need a 120Vac source and space somewhere to mount it. Within or the side of a sturdy cabinet can work with the appropriate mount, bear in mind it should be in a location where outputs from antenna/satellite or other AV equipment can be accessed or installed. Good luck, with every RV we've owned I have always upgraded rig's stock AV equipment, greatly enhancing our onboard entertainment experience.

My 2004 Fourwinds 5000 28A came with a TV cabinet in the corner of the wall backing to the shower and was pre-wired. I also ran an electrical cord from inverter beneath RV and up through the floor to run TV from house batteries. I only use this if kids in camper and they use the TV/DVD to watch their movies. You could also do similar in yours. Good luck.

Make sure you can mount it securely especially in the rear of a 'C', some have a tendency to pound. The factories often place a 12x12 plywood square inside the wall so you have something solid to screw into. That is usually marked using a decal.
Once you mount it, add a web strap to secure it, I have seen many rip out of the wall. Try to limit any and all movement while its in the travel position.

You didn't mention if you already have a front tv with a power booster antenna. If its not pre-wired for a rear tv then you have to snake the wires behind drawers, water heater, fridge etc. You will need a power antenna and coax port to bring in cable and or satellite, make sure you use the correct cable for a sat signal if you plan to do that.
