Tv brand suggests

The Jensen TV in my 2019 Outback has died.
Maybe from just road vibration, the camper has about 10,000 miles on it. It will work if you shake it just right.
So do they make TVs designed to withstand vibration in an RV.
Any suggestions on a brand? This one is about a 39” screen

There aren’t any RV specific TVs that I’m aware of. Go with the brand that has the features and picture that you like the most.

May be able to find a shock absorber mount..I found one on Amazon made by Ollo but is unavailable right now.
I would just get a new tv,it may have been a one time issue.
I like tcl 6 series,good picture and like the roku operating system.
They make cheaper models as well

When the Furrion piece of junk in our trailer goes out I'll replace it with a Samsung

I'm also a Samsung fan. Depending on your budget situation and size requirements, I've found some really good buys at our local big box store (Kroger/Smiths/ Fred Meyer)

I have several Samsung televisions in the house and 2 in the camper. Haven't had any issues and based on my experience would recommend them.

Best brand for an RV is the cheapest at Walmart. I would make sure the inputs and outputs are compatible with the things you want to hook up to the television such as DVD player, sound bar, etc.

I personally recommend the Samsung as well. It's all I try to use. One thing to consider as George mentioned are the number and types of outputs. When I replaced this one I wanted 3 HDMI ports which proved a bit difficult to find in the size I needed. I was never a fan of sound bars until this trailer. With the acoustics, noise etc. the cheap RV components sometimes have a hard time being heard. Put a Polk sound bar with wireless sub in when I replaced this TV and it works super for the trailer.
