You will have to wire the tv outlet to an inverter to make it work while you are traveling

Do you already have an inverter? Some 29Js came with a 1,000 watt inverter.

Yep, it came with the 1000w inverter. Maybe just wire it through the inverter?
TV is overhead(drivers) bunk. I couldn't see this thing if it meant I would win Mega Millions if I could see it.

the easiest way to power the TV is to simple run an extension cord to an outlet that IS powered by the inverter, usually the FRIDGE outlet - you can't simply 'rewire' the inverter to make it work.

or the inverter itself may have it's own outlet that you can make use of...

Ohh I like that idea. Gota be a way to positively identity which outlets are inverter friendly. ��
