Out of curiosity, what brand and model # of TV did you decide on? I have no desire to have one in my bus (the laptop is sufficient for the amount of TV I watch), but for those who aren't aware: many of the smaller LCD TVs are 12v. When walking around Walmart or the like, look at the power supplies of the floor models. You'll see many of them are down-converting 110vac to between 12vdc and 20vdc. If it's 12-14vdc you could probably take the risk and connect it directly to the battery bank (which can be upwards of 14 volts, but I'd be willing to risk it on a cheap TV), or find a reasonable regulator on eBay to keep the voltage at 12vdc regardless. It just skips an electrical conversion step and may be more convenient if you manually turn on your inverter. 12vdc -> 110Vac inverter -> 12vdc seems silly if you aren't running a mondo TV..
