TV Mod, A Must Have

Both LCD TVs are flat mounted and do not tilt. The one in the living room is no big deal, but the one in the bedroom really bugged me.

Bought one of these for around 12 bucks





Thank God I decided to do this mod because the TV was originally mounted with two wood screws.





See where they were mounted on the TV side...one one side only





Now it is solid and tilts

Yeah, I'm starting to wonder. I hope it will last at least 10 years and on the next one we are going to go all out and get the best quality rated one.

I just found that one of the map lights in the cockpit is out...the driver's one. I checked and there isn't 12v going up to it so it's not going to be an easy fix. That means that a cable is lose somewhere....arrggghh!

I was thinking about doing the same thing. Does the TV get in the way when you walk by?

After you've had a few cold ones, probably. That's the wife's side of the bed though

I need to find a mount like that so I can go from a 19 inch to a 32 inch because the one on the wall in the trailer is to small to fit the 32 inch.

Where did you get that one?

In our motorhome, that's MY side of the bed. That's why I asked.
