Hey, Jim. hope your havin fun. Need some advice about installing a Vizion Flat screen TV in my travel trailer. I'm thinkin it's just plug and play if it's digital ready one that I buy. Kidkin out the crummy 13 inche 110 vold ac job that my FunfinderX ultralight came with.
But then I read a blog thread somewhere that indicated that someone else did exactly the same thing and the flat screen did not work due to antenna (which I really don't want to go to the hassle to replace. The trailer also has an "antenna" booster per normal and the usual "flying wing" crank down antenna on top.

The trailer also has only a converter and not an inverter so I can only run the little factory job tv when I'm land lined to 110 at a campground.

Whaddy think?
thank you.

Hey Scooter Jim I've got a small 16 inch 110volt tv that came with that test trailer I'm tryin out. It's heavy, too small and I want to loose it. My question is Will a 20 inch or so flat screen marked "hd" ready work without a converter box?? Got a converter for home but really don't want one due to mounting location of tV. What sort of wording should I look for that will get the "new" signal?

Happy New Year to You! Pat
