    Probably because the Lunar Champ range is a rebadged Homecar which was made in Belgium.

    The 12v sockets in our Burstner are all Euro sockets rather than 2 pin or cigar lighter style. I already had a couple of multi-socket adapters from Lidl/Aldi so simply bought some Euro plugs on eBay and replaced the cigar lighter plugs on the adapters.
    The Lidl adapter has USB sockets so all our charging needs are covered (always remembering never to overload a socket).

    So long as it is a TV that can run from 12v it shouldn't cause any problems at all as it is likely to be low wattage.
