As TVs get larger and flatter and start giving high-quality HD, many rv accessories are starting to cater to these new products. Upgrading an RV can seem a little overwhelming, in that everything is built in and settled, but it doesn’t have to be difficult.
It’s possible when you bought your rv that the only option out there – or affordable – was for CRT TVs. The rv accessories were built around this bulky mass, and now with everything built in, it might not seem worth it to change. With the new LED and plasma televisions on the market, you can get a high quality picture in your rv, and the cost doesn’t have to bleed you dry.
RV accessories and parts for these new flat panel TVs are everywhere, and even allow you to put that beautiful TV in your outdoor patio space for TV viewing in the great outdoors.
If you are worried about bright sunshine glaring off your TV and making it impossible to watch, there are rvs with mounts located higher than the normal basement level mounts which allows your TV to be mounted closer to the awning to protect from the sun.
Inside the rv, not only will your load get lighter, but also you might be able to ditch some equipment. Flat panel TVs are much lighter than the traditional CRT units, meaning you’ll be saving a bit of gas and also possibly losing the soundtrack created by heavy units squeaking over rough roads. The new flat-panel TVs require no separate converter box as well, which gives you even more room and a bit less weight.
Some cabinet work will probably have to be completed. If you are handy, you could complete this small cabinetry project in a short period of time. Otherwise, find the right person or company to get your new TV into a new home.
Because you are losing out on the old, bulky TV casing, a flat panel TV set will most likely let you increase your TV size. Find a place in your RV and measure the maximum width you can go without running into cabinets or other appliances.
This will be the approximate size of your new TV because the diagonal size of the screen is the same as the width of the flat panel including the casing.
A new flat panel will also add a high-tech look to your old RV. This updated entertainment will not only add to your experience on the open road, but will help increase the sale value when you decide to give up your old rig.
