Television for a 19

Hey 19 owners what TVs are you using? Make/Model We'll be mounting ours above the bed on the driver side...on the refrigerator wall.

Thanks

Ours is mounted in the same place, a Samsung 22" UN22F5000. That model was discontinued long ago however. A shame since it is the perfect size, works with a 12V adapter so you don't need the brick, and the picture quality blows away all the TVs "made for RVs". And, it was around $100. Hard to beat.

I'd look for something from Samsung in that size range again if I were in the market.

Ours is a 19" Samsung. It came with a brick for 110 volt down to 14 volts. I chucked the brick and put a cigarette lighter plug on the cord. It runs fine on battery power, which isn't 14 volts, but it doesn't seem to make any difference.

Ours is mounted on the passenger side because we both like to stretch out on the dinette seats with our backs on pillows against the front wall. With the TV on the drivers side the person on the dinette driver's side wouldn't be able to see the TV.

Photo is taken from driver's side.

I was watching a show on cable, at home, called "Extreme RV's" and in one scene buyers touring a selection of RV's in the half-a-million dollar range lamented the fact one had a flat screen they thought was too small. It was mounted outside, a mere 36 inches diagonally. You opened a panel door in the shade of your awning. They really liked another model that had - count 'em - 7 flat screens, all inside though.

Mine is a mere 19 inches, a Haier short of those, Marshall Dillon.

Don't know why but I hate that show Myron. Watched it once for about 20 minutes and was shaking my head. Hey, if they're that eager to flush money down the drain, give me some of it.

Now James Arness, I'll watch that.

I'm guessing when those rigs get dirty they just trade it in for a new one. I passed one on I-40 just today. Hitched behind it they were towing a ruby red Silverado 1500 like mine.

Oh we swing it around for the dinette . At the beach remove and put at kitchen area , can't hear the sound very well at the ocean so that solves it . Pat
