How big flatscreen tv for perm?

Recommended Posts

I run deep cycles off of and invertor. I currently have a 13 inch tube tv, but I'm upgrading. Does a 19 inch use a lot more power than a 15 inch? Should I keep it smaller for better power savings? What do you guys run off your invertors?

If you are looking at LCD flatscreens, they use a lot less power than a conventional tube TV, or plasma. I don't think a 19 inch LCD would use a lot more juice than a 15 inch would either, but I have nothing to back that up.

I'm still running the tube setup in mine. Might change after Feb. rolls around though.

i got an audiovox 15 inch lcd with built in dvd player. ac/dc tv. perfect size for my 18 ft house. I watched 3 movies in it this fall with no problems running one battery and the lights were still good and bright. I would not go with a 19 inch cause it just gets too big. my 15 inch sits nicely on a small shelve next to a cabinet.

I would bring it back and forth. First you don't want any one stealing it, and second the condensation from the temp change will sooner or later short the tv out. Trust me I have a stack of shorted out tv's, Now I have a 32 inch Flat screen and take it out every time and I have yet to have a problem and I think am going on my 3rd year with this TV.

I use a 15" Magnovox lcd, my tv has a seperate external power supply that converts 110 volts ac to 12 volts dc, The tv runs on 12 volts dc, so I went to Radio Shack and got a cigerette lighter power cord with the correct end that plugs into the tv and I no longer need the inverter or the power supply, Both of those items get warm when they are being used and that takes alot of battery power, if you get rid of them a car battery should run just the tv for a couple days.

    • this piece looks good, i interessting recipe for marinade. I make a meat with basil but want to taste new recipes. And one more think - i may advice you while smoking make a incisions if meat very broad
    • You sure seem to say Grill a lot though! 😏    
    • I have an old MES 30that I put a new element in right before I got my pellet grill. I decided that all of the wet chips is what raised havoc on the last element, so now I run a smoke tube that I burn pellets in. The nice part is that I can now do cold smoking
    • You could but that's just another thing and I like to make bigger batches. Like 50 # plus and I like them hanging. The MES is marginal at best for this and I have the cold smoker attachment on that.   If you just want small runs of stuff that might work. 
    • Can you put a cold smoker box on the side of yours? That would be a good set up for sausage, sticks, etc.  
    • Yep.....😊     Nothing wrong with that. I've just decided I like to cook great BBQ as easily and lazily as possible. 😋
    • I'm still keeping the MES until I make my fridge smoker. The Pellet grill is great for some things but I still like a regular smoker for sausages, sticks etc. 
    • No, I wanted both in one package.     A pellet grill IS a smoker and takes just as much time to cook low and slow as any other smoker.
    • Boat prices are INSANE!!! Even used boats are still rediculous.   As far as buying old used boats and rebuilding them for profit, I think you’ll be hard pressed to break even, let alone make a profit (unless you find one for dirt cheap). An old boat is still an old boat even if it’s been fixed up. 
    • So you really wanted a fancy Grill, not a smoker? Smokers do take up a lot more time but I'm having a lot of fun with my Char grill smoker.
