I apparently was not too clear on a previous thread regarding powering an LCD. On my sailboat, in addition to a small touch screen monitor, I would also like to run a full sized 15 inch monitor. I take a lot of pictures while I'm cruising and the large screen would be primarily for photo editing and also for occasionaly watching DVD's. Since the monitor came with a converter that changes houshold current to 12v @ 3.4a, it seems to me that there should be a way to power it directly from a regulated source of 12v. I'm just not sure how to do it. Can the original plug in be spliced to a regulator or are there cables available? Would I have to open the monitor case to attach 12v wires? I realize that this is not strictly car related but this site is the closest I have found to my marine application. I am currently still in the planning stages and need to learn as much as I can before I start buying .
