What is the Difference Between a 12 Volt TV vs. Regular TV

The main question is why do we need 12 Volt TV for motorhome? Why not use a regular TV ? The straightforward answer is, standard TVs are not designed to withstand road stress and shocks of being driven around, particularly on rough roads & the 240volt power required means that you can only, really watch the TV if you are using “electric hook up” or if you have a generator.

Simple 12 volt Tv set up

A 12 Volt TV is the most convenient and portable television that can be used without the need for mains/domestic power.

They are specifically developed to provide a seamless on-the-go watching experience for when you are in your motorhome.

By powering directly from your leisure battery, you don’t need any extra power source.






For a motorhomes leisure batteries, power consumption is always a main concern.

I have 2 12volt Tv’s in my motorhome & with both of them on at the same time the do not even draw 2 amps. A 12 volt TV uses far less energy to work, as compared to standard TV. If you have a proper solar panel charging kit for your batteries, you will never run out of power for the Tv,



There are other things that make 12 Volt TV different from a regular domestic one:

  • Internal framework of 12 Volt TV is strengthened, that secure the TV onto the mounting bracket
  • 12 Volt TV’s can cope with severe shocks and bumps, due to its vibration testing.
  • 12 Volt TV resists and secure against intense humidity and temperatures, due to its test of rigorousness.
  • Regular TV may cause a short circuit, if you turn it on in a high humidity or high temperature enviroment.
  • These TVs are also known as DC/ AC TVs, because they can be work by using both 12volt and mains electricity.


Which size 12volt TV is best for your Motorhome?

Space is a priority in motorhomes, so there’s not a huge living area or wall space  to mount a large LED TV of the same size that you would have at home.

How close are you going to be ?



Also, keep in mind before choosing any 12 Volt TV for your motorhome, you may have a much shorter viewing distance between you and the TV.





The right size depends on 3 things:

  1.  Motorhome Space: Before choosing, have a look at available space in your motorhome. There must be a suitable area or an empty/ plain wall to mount of place the TV.
  2.  Position: Take into account, whether you are expecting a fixed mount or a temporary one. If you have the capacity to   swivel it, so you do not need a TV as big.
  3.  Price: Always keep in mind, the bigger the TV, the pricier it is going to be.


For motorhomes the most common sizes are from 19 to 24 inches. This may sound small, compared to what you have in your house but inside your motorhome, it will appear much bigger.
