I have the NAXA 17" with a DVD player built in. One of the nice things is that it is a native 12vdc TV.

BUT When you are below the TV on the bed for example, even with the TV tilted down as low as it can go, images start to look ghostly, or like a negative. I think the off axis view of this monitor is poor.

Testing the now famous $98.00 32" I put it on a TV tray, hooked it up to my Roku and layed on the floor in front of it and the off axis viewing did not have the same problem.

Can't say for sure if the bigger NAXA does either, but not crazy about the 17.

Ray, we purchased this 19" tv for our Escape 19 (19 in RCA LCD TV with DVD on sale London Drugs). It fits well on the rear bulkhead between the fridge and bed. I would not want to go much bigger (if at all) with a tv as it would begin to encroach on the view from the windows or stick out past the edge of the bulkhead and interfere with passage in the hallway.

Seriously, temperature extremes are a challenge for home electronics. Jensen makes a line of TVs which are billed as suitable for use in vehicles, and my motorhome came with (more than) one. No problems, but maybe ordinary household stuff would stand up okay, too; they've been repeatedly frozen, and have been vibrated by 20,000 km on a truck chassis.

I looked it up on Wiki. There is no liquid in a liquid crystal display. I could go on, but that's all I remember accurately.

Thus, your smiley face...
but LCDs don't like low temperatures - even the ones in a car respond poorly until they warm up.

Dave - Just received a reply from Reace regarding installing a 24" TV in our 19'. He said the weight should be fine; however, as you indicated, there would be a limited swing for the bracket. Thanks for confirming that a 19" would be best.

I roughly measured the 32" TV horizontally and it came out to about 15" from center. The space to the Fridge corner was a little shorter than that. So swinging the TV fully perpendicular to the fridge is not possible, but it should still be viewable from the dinette even being slightly off axis. Getting by it into the bed will be impossible, but it is not possible really even with the 17 without swinging it out of the way.

From the bed it will be across and in the corner and should be easily viewable, maybe too easily being so large.

It is about 2 lbs too heavy too but as long as we take it down for transit, that should be OK.

When we get back from Hawaii I will mount the sucker and end the speculation.

Hi: DeadEyeDan... Here's what we did with our 19" Toshiba w/dvd. It just clears the light under the cabinet and locks to the wall with a slide lock so it travels there. Alf

Looks good! In our case the arm is already there, so it is just a matter of accomodating the larger TV, or not. Worse comes to worse, we paid 98.00 for the TV, we can use it somewhere at home.

Any chance of getting a shot of the slide lock arrangement?
