We choose the Avtex 24 inch TV as an upgrade to the previous TV set up in the motorhome. Over the last few trips, we have had more and more nights “off grid” (not using electric hook up) and so we had decided to purchase a 12 volt TV, rather than run a mains powered one through an inverter. In addition to a 12 volt powered TV, we also wanted a model with a built-in DVD player. The other consideration is the screen size. “e had previously used 19 inch TV’s, all OK, but now wanted something with a larger screen.
Whilst at Roadpro recently to look at other products, I noticed an Avtex 24 inch TV on display and asked if I could borrow this for a minute or two to see how it looked in the motorhome. The display model was “up and running”, so the sound and picture quality were clear to see, but I was a tad concerned about the screen size. Anyway, once the TV had been tested for size and fit, the deal was done.
The Avtex 24 inch TV features the following:
- 24 inch screen size
- 12 volt or 230 volt operation
- Remote control
- DVD player
- Built in satellite decoder – connect your satellite dish direct to the TV
- Built in free to air receiver
- HDMI and RCA connections
- USB slot
- Removable stand
When in operation, the Avtex 24 inch TV uses 35 watts of power, so this is about 3 amps when using leisure battery power. The TV weighs just under four kilograms. The television is supplied with a stand, but we use the Swift-fitted wall bracket. There are more details on the Avtex website.
Set up and installation was very easy. We watch satellite channels through our on board SKY box, connected to the television using RCA cables. The digital TV signals come through the Status 550 aerial. The status aerial is connected to the TV using standard RF cable.
The Avtex is not the cheapest TV on the market. However, given it’s functions and features, three-year guarantee and low power consumption, we are pleased with it overall. We have a second Tv point in the Kon-tiki. We have a Finlux TV at the rear of the ‘van – read our Finlux review here.
