I agree with him that the antenna you've chosen is great and this will help you identify what direction to aim and boost the signal.
Most TV's have either a 100mm, 200mm or 400mm bolt pattern on the back to screw mounts into.
I buy most of my mounts from monoprice.com. They have everything from flat mounts, articulating mounts or just tilt mounts. Depending on the height your mount is located is what I would use to determine which I would prefer. I generally lean towards articulating if for no other reason than it's a lot easier to see what your doing when you hook up HDMI, audio and antenna cables if you can pull it a couple inches from the wall. Those flat mounts can be a bear sometimes with where they place the ports for hookups. Trying to hold a mirror, aim a head lamp and wiggle a cable in for 15 minutes can send you to the chiropractor the next day, lol.

Gotta love e-bay
Seems like E-bays sellers have really gone downhill, I buy ALOT of things on E-bay and Ive seen the decline. I think sellers are getting the shaft on E-bay from E-bay and bad people purchasing and taking advantage of E-bays system so its a shamelynnmor said:We buy a lot of collectable glassware on e-bay, those items that are damaged due to poor packaging gets the seller a poor rating.
Larry N. said:If you can plug it into a cigarette lighter plug, then it's a 12V DC unit. The other cord is basically a wall wart (may be internal), or at least a converter to change the wall 120V AC into 12V DC for the TV. So you got what you asked for, plus a bonus to allow you to use it both ways. That's common for 12 V devices.
So do Rvs typically have lighter outlets located throughout their cabins?Larry N. said:I think you misread what I wrote. You certainly may use the "regular power cord" to plug in when in the house, but not the lighter plug (unless you have a 12V DC adapter to plug it into). But you still can plug the lighter cord into a lighter receptacle in the RV. So you can do either one, allowing you to use the TV both in places.
