Flat face down on the bed. Why chance a disaster?

We take ours down and store it face down also just like Harkerr, but put the pillows over the back.

We like to watch the news and get the weather. Nothing would screw that up more than having it bust during the ride. It may be ok to leave it up, but if it is down and gets busted through pillows and a comforter, then that was its time to go and not due to me. In all cases, CYA first, and last.

The drive home from the dealership took a toll on my TV. It bounced right out of the bracket and broke before I ever had a chance to use it. I replaced the kitchen mount with an articulating mount which was mounted to a board tied in by lags to a stud. During travel it is secured by a bungee cord and 2 eye bolts. That sucker will be staying put now.

To remove the TV from this type of mount to you just pull up on the TV?

Yes, it just lifts off. the TV has an opposite mounts and holds in place by gravity, not locked in place.

The majority (maybe all?) trailers and fivers have no suspension shock absorbers and so they bounce all the time. It's a very harsh environment.
