    Absolutely. Just make sure you get the polarity correct! It matters when you are using DC. The center of the connector is positive, by the way. And I never cut up the factory wall wart/brick style power supply that comes with the TV. Why ruin something you would have to pay for twice? I plan on using the TV in my house during the off-season, so clearly, it's a better idea to get something like this item below; and save the AC power supply that came with the TV.

    This is basically what I'm using, only mine has voltage range from 3-12 volts, not the larger ranges suitable for laptops. This was just the first online example I found of a regulated 12 volt DC to DC power supply. I like all the different tips that come with these things. They come in very handy for electronic projects around the house when I'm tinkering.

    FYI I bought a 19" Insignia and did this exact thing on my last boat. Worked just fine the entire season I had it, before I sold it. I didn't hear any complaints from the new owners.
