Mounting tv in the bunkhouse

We have a 2014 Rock wood 8312ss. I am wanting to mount a tv on the wall in the area provided in the bunkhouse. The wall feels like it has plywood behind it, but can't tell for sure. Has anyone out there done this? I was thinking of moving the tv from the bedroom to the bunkhouse and using the brackets that mount to the wall. Wife and I rarely watch tv in bed. This would get the grand kids a tv to watch their Barbie videos and let nana watch lifetime.

Yes the TV areas have wood backing. It is likely not much, so I would use all the holes on the mount possible with short wood screws. See what was used when you take down the mount in the bedroom.

it appears that I will need to get a tv with built in speakers. The tv in the bedroom does not have speakers. It must broadcast thru the genesis and utilize the speakers in the ceiling.

Are you sure the speakers on the tv aren't just turned off? Check in the tv's setting menu and make sure they aren't just turned off.

Good call. I thought it weird that a TV didn't have speakers, but I didn't have any ideas.

Thx for the reply. Yeah, you are probably right about that. I am still learning this new RV. I am sure that it's either that or I didn't have the RCA plugs hooked up right. It was borrowed DVD player. I looked up the specs on the tv and it absolutely has speakers, just wasn't obvious at the time I wrote my last post.
