The Furrions have 'vibrationsmart' and 'climatesmart' technology. I assume these features make them a bit more suited to RV/boat applications.

Jayco (and many other manufacturers) seem to change TV brands every few years. Probably get whatever is cheapest...

One of the first things that we have done in all of our recent RV's is to switch the TV's out to Samsung smart TVs. We use a 32" in the living area, and a 25" in the bedroom.

They are fully WiFi connected, and we use them for streaming movies, and "surfing" in the campgrounds that have WiFi.

I use the VIZIO model in mine - Always a good sale on-going at WALMART... Bestbuy is a great store but they might be on the pricey side.

About the only thing to watch for is make sure you get a digital type HIGH DEF TV. The NATIONAL BROADCAST System does not support the old analog TV 's anymore.. All of the new TV's should be this mode...

I threw away all of my old HEAVY ANALOG TV's when the changeover came a few years back. The new Flat Screen HDTV's are light weight and will mount almost anywhere.

You must be careful on where you can mount the TV's to the very thin walls of the RV Trailers. Not everywhere will support the HDTV's by just screwing directly to the thin walls. Unless you screw into something thick the screws will simply pull out with the weight of the LCD flatscreens. The best approach is to mount a back board first and screw into that with your HDTV swivel mounts.

There is a ton of info on the forums about this subject...

I'm guessing your JAYCO 23B is an older trailer with the older analog heavy TV's installed?

hmm.. I'm seeing the 39" Furrion on their website for $415.00.
Jayco charges $750.00 for the option. I wonder why there is such a BIG markup?
Does the TV option from Jayco include the mount and additional wiring that you don't get if you don't choose the TV option?

Do you folks leave the TV's in the camper during the off season?

I store mine in the house.

I believe the newer models have an electronic arm on the TV which folds out for viewing and then folds back up with the push of a button. Probably a pricey piece of equipment. That may have something to do with it. I don't know though.

The wiring is standard in the new units, and the power swing out arm and TV is standard (Customer Value) on the motorhomes. There is a standard backer-board in the wall of the bedroom, and is usually marked. The power and cable outlet are within a few feet of where the bedroom TV is.

Best Buy and Wall-Mart match each others prices.

We use the American Strong arm mount. When we travel we remove the TV and place it on the bed. We also mounted the second base on the outside and occasionally use the same TV outside

Welcome to the 23RB family!

I contacted Jayco. They recommended a 19"-26" TV. We picked an HDMI 26" Westinghouse that Best Buy had on sale.

Armed with Jayco's wall drawings and a stud finder, I mounted a Stanley Tmr-ec3103t 13"-37" Tilt Wall Mount (Walmart.com) with 1" coarse thread screws. With a slip on coax connector, it easily disconnects for travel.

"It comes with 3 - 32" and a 46" tv with built in DVD players." That sounds like a movie stars trailer.

I have a single TV (perhaps a 32 inch), w/DVD, which I've only turned on twice. Now my separately provided amp, tuner and speakers are on all the time; rock on.

O.P.
As many others have said, the television(s) that comes in most trailers run(s) off 120V power. That means you have to be plugged into shore power for your plugs/TVs to work. You mentioned you wanted to do some boon-docking (as in "Camping without an electric hook-up). If that's what you meant, you might want to get a television that runs off 120VAC or 12VDC, and a second battery. Otherwise, you'd only be able to watch the television when you're connected to shore power or your generator.

One other thing: since LED technology has advanced so much, the manufacturers have stopped making plasma TV's. In order to get rid of back stock, many retailers and on-liners are offering steep discounts on plasma TV's. DON'T LET THE LOWER PRICES SUCK YOU IN! They are incredibly heavy, and the shaking will really mess up the liquid plasma. Stick with an LED.

My TT came with a 32" "Continue-Us" brand LED in the living room, with a buried wire connection to the radio/DVD Player. There was a reinforced spot on the bedroom wall for mounting a TV mounting bracket. There's also an antennae outlet at that location, but nothing going back to the DVD player. I simply installed the mount and the LED television with built-in DVD player that I had bought for my old trailer. (It came with nothing.) If you have a lot of DVD's, you may want to do the same thing. If "Blu-Ray" is your preference, you'll probably have to go with a free-standing "Blu-ray" player, as I've never seen a TV/Blue-Ray combo.

Just my 2 cents. Best of luck making your decision.
