Last year I put a small Walmart TV in my 1975 Prowler.
I think I bought a larger Walmart TV when the TV in our bedroom gave up the ghost.
AND... I think I bought a Walmart TV when I had a Grey Wolf.

No complaints... Don't skimp on your Coaxial cables, they really do make a difference in your picture.

Thanks for the comments but I never have or will shop at Walmart. I will go to Best Buy though and will use you advice.

It was odd at our RV park this winter as the Xfinity guy said he only hooks up tv to about 60% of their customers anymore............... spmething else I need to figure out.

My Wally branded TV is great. The factory size was a 40" and I upgraded to a 46" and the difference is huge in the picture quality. No comparison.

Take a look at the Toshiba Amazon Fire smart TVs on Amazon. It's some sort of partnership with Toshiba and Amazon.

I bought 2 last year; the 43" models were on sale for about $200. Good TV for a spare bedroom, RV, etc., and Toshiba is a brand name.

There are some that are special - the ones that run on 12v.
Jensen makes 12v LCD TVs that some RV manufacturers use.

Someone on this site pointed out that a lot of TV these days will run on 12 volt if you just cut the cord off and add a 12 volt plug.

Not all of them though so I'm not suggesting that people should go and start cutting off their TV cords at random. lol

A quick search on amazon yields a bunch 12volt tv 's for reasonable prices...considering I saw one literally 4x cheaper than the optional one on the TT I am thinking of purchasing I will certainly not get it as an option!
