Televisions

Hello
We are the first time owners of an Jay Flight RB 23 and new to the trailering world
My question is regarding TV's and whether they must be RV specific or something from Best Buy will work
We intend to travel/ boondocks as our primary use
Do the TV stand up to the road conditions? Or are there RV mounts that take care of that ?
Thanks
Soltice

I don't believe their is an RV specific TV. The ones they come with are just regular TVs. TVs are shipped to stores in trucks that bounce just as much or more than a trailer...

I replaced my original TV (some weird off brand I've never heard of) with a Samsung. Worked perfectly.

Good luck!

They do actually make TVs that work off 12V, and they are more expensive than the 120V (normal) TVs. TVs in RVs are set up to work off 120V, so just a regular TV will work.

Thank you
Good points to all
My main concern was vibration and travel abuse wrecking a TV sensitive components

Ahh haa, think about your TV mount! You want one that securely holds the weight and 'locks in place'. Please search the forum on TV mounts for there are many posts on this topic along with great pictures on how to install and work with locking mounts (ours is one of the war stories so posted). We ultimately went with the higher-weight-rated mount because the one we originally purchased (from Amazon) appeared to be right for the weight but quickly started sagging due to the normal TT bouncing!

I brought this up at the time of ordering our NP 375 BHFS. It comes with 3 - 32" and a 46" tv with built in DVD players... The last time I bought a DVD was around 2011 and am sold on nothing but Samsung and blue ray. The dealer said they couldn't undo the tv's because they are part of the package so they said they work with me on a credit for them to keep them. Does anyone know what brand Jayco uses?

If I'm not mistaken the new ones are using a brand name "Furrion" or something like that. Supposedly they went with this brand because it holds up better under RV like circumstances. i.e. bouncing and jostling around a lot while in the back and going down the road. Other brands aren't designed for constant movement and components can come loose after long periods being banged around....supposedly anyway. This could also be dealer specific, so I don't know. Something to consider though. As with anything, research research research! Look into it and browse for reviews of different brands and TVs before you make an investment.
