Re: 12 volt stores you trust

We got our TV/DVD at the Bordentown Junction Truck Stop at 206 & the Jersey Turnpike.

19" 720p, 12v with a DVD player. I think we're on year three with it and it's going strong. It's got a surprisingly good picture.

Mounted it on a tilt/swivel mount from Bestbuy throughbolted with fender washers and nylocks on on the backside. The brand is SuperSonic, but I've seen the same TV with a different names in RV & Marine stores.

We also got a 12v wet/dry vac that does OK for small jobs. They have a lot of 12v gadgets. We also hit the truck stop on 295 down near Paulsboro. Same 12v gadgets but we picked up some good stuff for patching up diesels enough to get you home
