We use a television on 12 volt often, all you need is a cable to plug into a 12 volt socket .
Without a solar panel you can easy run every thing 12 volt for more then 3 days with our 80 watt panel we have run over a week, a big saving when on a Cl as low as £3.00! A night.

A typical led tv runs on average at about 25 watts, that on average pulls about 2 amps per hour out of your battery so if you were to just run the tv a typical 110A/H battery would last about 50 hours as you should NOT discharge a leisure battery to more than 50% of it's capacity
Mpurdom read my posts on afterfit solar panels everything you want to know as to how much power a caravan typically uses and what size solar panels are required to maintain your battery power.

We have had a solar panel for 3 years. Its a briefcase type. Its really great and we use TV almost every night and morning. Have lights on when we want. I have a generator too but now never take it away because the Solar panel is so good. Make sure you buy a decent size one. Make sure you use a monitor between the solar panel and the battery so it does not keep feeding to the battery when its fully charged Some people have small ones that are not good. I also use a connector to the panel wiring and battery so when on site I only have to plug it in and its done.
