My 15 inch TV comes with an AC cord, which has an inline box that converts to 12V and it comes with a straight 12V cord. I'd check Amazon for a 12V cord for your particular brand and model.

Help finding a cord would be great appreciated! The tv is a Samsung UN22F5000 22-Inch 1080p 60Hz Slim LED HDTV

I plug an inverter into the 12v outlet, then the tv plug which has a built in inverter that takes the inverted 12v to 110 back to 12 or 14v I can't go straight from 12v outlet to the tv?
Inverters change the voltage from 12V DC to 110V AC. If the TV is "DC compatible", that is usually meant to say it has a 12V power supply/plug built in and can be directly connected to a 12V outlet -- no inverter in that case. The inverter only comes into play when the TV is NOT DC ready. If it turns out the TV is not AC/DC, I'd probably return it for one that is. Personal preference.

It is clearly dc compatible and that RS cord should work! Thanks!

I am not inclined to take the table down each time we tow, when we really want it up for use all the time.
We're you referring to the cleats in my photo or something else? If mine, the cleats came from West Marine. The cam lock from Home Depot.

Okay. The DC cords from Radio Shack do not work as they don't have the correct plug size. :-(. Amazon does not seen to have what i need either. I am reader to get this done, right of course, but it may not get done today. Maybe I wait until the eastern rally and have the experts help me!! Next question is can I attach the tv bracket anywhere on the fried wall? It is the only reinforced wall I have installed.

I would take the TV back and get one with AC/DC cords.
You have to be very careful with Radio Shack adapters that you get the polarity right. I fried a $100 AM/FM/Shortwave radio by using the wrong tip.

It came with an ac cord that goes into a DC converter, then to the tv.... Seems I should be able to get a DC to DC cord to fit this.... But I don't want to wreck it either...
