exterior TV ideas thread... Thu, 06/21/12 10:39 AM (permalink)
im going to use a television with menu items on a loop and be able to use tv with wifi and laptop for football, golf tournaments, concerts, ect so my ideas are to use a adjustable wall mount. there are issues with all of these but heres a few ideas im playing with:
1).  get a weather worthy tv but theyre more expensive.
2).  build an enclosure out of stainless or alum treadplate.
3).  use it in the truck through a plexi/glass window cut into the truck sidewall.
4).  get a regular LCD tv and take it down in inclement weather.
5).  have a clear poly bag sewn up custom with a zipper or velcro and vents for heat.
6).  insert your own ideas or make comments/throw tomatoes.

    I like option 3 the best. It lessens the chances of it getting knocked over or stolen as well as safe from weather.

        No not in our area but I have seen several on line. I think you should have the menu and intermittent live video from the inside of your truck so I can see your crew preparing my meal.

          Never saw one here. This set is more of a kitschy theme not best technology...
