TV Mounting

I have recently purchased a 2014 Wildwood 27RKSS. I want to mount a tv in the bedroom. There is an antenna and power outlet in the ceiling in one corner. There is a sticker in the living area that say TV Backer, but nothing like that in the bedroom. Where should I mount the TV and what type mount should I use? Thx.

The TV backer for the bedroom TV will likely be within a few inches of the cable / power connections. If you press pretty firmly on the wall in that vicinity with your thumbs, you should be able to feel where the backer is. It is a wooden block inside the wall into which to screw your television mount.

As far as what type of mount to use, get one that is articulating but has a lock of some sort to hold it flat against the wall without swinging in and out when travelling.

Ours came from Wayfair.com. Go to their site and search for "locking" television mount for RVs.

Mor Ryde sells some nice ones as well. I have used them in my last camper and my new camper. Expensive but worth it.

Our 5er had the cable/power outlets right by the sticker that said "mount TV here". Got that done now and LOVE IT!

Just got a small Vizio 23" (?) on an articulating arm on the wall in the corner between "his size" of the bed and the bathroom door. Anything larger would have ended up whackin' him on the shoulder as he rounded that corner of the bed.

Took him a while to figure it out, but we can view anything there that we view on the salon tv.

Make sure your articulating mount enables the TV to be tilted down and up also. We got ours at WalMart...inexpensive.

We just replaced our tv mount with. Rocketfish tilting mount. Easy to install. We forgot to unclip the tv during travel and after bouncing around on some secondary highways in Montana, we thought for sure we would find our tv in a million pieces. It held up! And it held up for the rest of our 5000 km tour through Montana, Washington and BC. We got ours for $50 at Best Buy.
