Are some kinds of TVs better for RV life

One of our wall mounted TVs cracked after a rough day on the road. I’m looking at a Samsung LED as a replacement. I wonder if some TV technology might be sturdier than others?

No guarantees, Samsung's QLED technology is generally considered to be more durable and less prone to screen cracks compared to traditional LED TVs.

Thanks for all the suggestions. I went with a 1080 Samsung. The price was right and I’m familiar with the operating system.

Both of our Airstream's came with Samsung TV's. No problems with them.

We have replaced our TVs over the years with TCL ROKU smart TVs. Have worked great, lasted over many miles and have great sound. The fact that they are inexpensive at Walmart is a bonus!

We have been using a Samsung LED TV for around 8 years. It's still works great.

I replaced my original TVs (off brand) in my 5er with Samsung LED in the living room and Samsung LCD in the bedroom and towed the trailer over some very rough highways for many years and no problem with the TVs.

For an RV that is used part time, I use the cheapest TV out there.
