Outside TV on 2011

On the 2011 390RB , there is a compartment directly behind the right front tire. It is already wired with power and coax.

Has anyone tried to mount a TV in that compartment; if so what type of mounting bracket did you use? It will definitely have to be "articulated" enough to allow the TV to swing in and out easily.

I replaced my Toshiba 32" (original equipment) within of the coach with a new 40" Visio unit. Figured to use the the original Toshiba as an outdoor TV.

Any/all thoughts/ideas will be appreciated.

Boowho??

Boo,
Yes, I agree that there is a compartment behind the Love Seat, but what are you exactly trying to do? Unfortunately, if you didn't get the outside TV option, you didn't get an outside door. Are you going to mount right to the slide-out's outside wall?

Hank,
I believe that Boo wants to mount the TV in the lower compartment just behind the front passenger wheel. There is an electrical outlet and cable TV hook up in the compartment.

Boo, I think that person who did the install mounted the TV to the inside of the door. I am just not sure when I saw the post.

Yeah, Tom states it best. I do NOT have a door like the newest Berks have; where the TV is right behind it, and it's in the slide wall.

The door I'm thinking of, is an actual storage compartment (again, just behind the right front tire). You can use it strictly for storage AND/OR mount a flat screen TV in there. The compartment is wired for such use.

Tom, I'd think that mounting it right to the back of the door would be fine, but the DW thinks it would put too much stress on the door hinges.

I will search for that other thread that Tom mentioned.

Boowho??

I took the top shelf out and mounted a small tv on the back wall. It is on an arm and I bring the TV closer the to opening when watching tv. When I had the bracket installed they said they had to beef up the wall to secure it.

What if you mount draw slides to this mount ant then secure to floor of cabinet. May need to use a wooden base for draw slide. TV would lay flat when not in use, slide out when want to use and hing up. This way could get it out past slide. Would still have upper shelves for storage.

TV

put our TV in the cabinet you are speaking of. Bolted the base to the bottom of cabinet, and ran a support bar in back in line with the mounting bolts holes on back to TV.

Boowhoo,

Like silver posted above...I have the same type of mount. It's a tight fit, but I have a 39 inch Samsung led in the first bay. Recently, I ran an HDMI cable from the main entertainment space (very easy to do) as well as installed an HDMI switch so now I can watch the same thing on both TVs or different sources on both. Something to consider is getting an outdoor TV cover...since my 39 inch is such a tight fit I needed a way to protect the TV screen. Can take pictures Thursday if you need a visual.

-David

With the bracket, I'm able to pull the TV out and turn it to the left.
