Hi Glenn,
We have a 22" Naxa 12v TV with built in DVD player (from Amazon) in our 5.0 TA. It's mounted on a swing arm near the door & can be viewed from the dinette or the bed. It came with the 12v plug and a 120v brick. Works well on 12v with the Jack antenna.
Charlie

This is yet another acronym I dislike seeing used, TV for Tow Vehicle, especially as there is a much more common use for that acronym, and one still discussed on these forums.

Really, is it not worth the 1/2 second to type the full name?

Acronyms

Jim:
I'm ready to take the pledge. I, Iowa Dave, do solemnly swear to make a conscientious effort to rid my writing of confusing acronyms. I will not even use the abbreviation for Oklahoma when indicating my acceptance of a product or experience. It's going to be hard though, but with the help of the acronym counselors I hope to reform my life and my writing. I will work on spelling and punctuation next. Dated November 14, 2015.

Finally!!! I agree.
It'll take the, "What the hell do these letters mean?" out of a lot of posts.

LOL. You actually touched on one I don't use. I much prefer the full version of okay, to ok. I think it takes about 1/20 of a second to type the ay on the end.

Context will generally eliminate confusion where an acronym has multiple meanings. For example, if one were to reference, say, the acronym "TV" in a sub-forum labeled "Towing and Hitching", one might reasonably conclude that the author is not referencing an electronic device for viewing moving images with accompanying audio, i.e., a television. When a URL (there I go again) is also provided which, if it were viewed, would give an additional contextual clue, one might be forgiven if it were assumed that his audience would understand his meaning. Obviously my assumptions have proven to be erroneous. Please accept my apologies for the confusion.

Glenn

P.S. Charlie, Thanks for the tip, We have a 21", 12 volt TV, I mean, television. That we're happy with.
