3010/3011 Owners, I need input.

Currently on the 3010 Sunseeker, 3011 Forester the TV mounts in the kitchen area straight across from the couch.

In our initial design, we had a pop up TV from the counter, until a large soda spilled in there and we decided that was a terrible idea. So it is mounted high, at a down angle.

#1 I thought a bracket that would drop the TV down from there to eye level would be very functional and also allow you to access the TV hook ups. we mocked one up. TV snaps in where it is now, but then swings down if you want, just above the counter.

#2 some of the other guys think no one is complaining about this, it would be better to leave it where it is, but mount the TV to a door that can be opened. Thus gaining storage space and still have access to the TV hook ups.

What say ye?!!!!

I don't have a problem with it mounted where it is. However, more storage is always great! By the way, I LOVE my 3010

My wife thought a swivel arm so TV can be viewed from the dinette would be good, also a way to be able to tilt or lower it would be good. I mentioned it will be a project to hook up dvd to it, she said she could just use TV in bedroom for that. It was a bit difficult to get all 4 hangers lined up in the holes, but seems to be a secure mounting system. You don't want anything that will come loose or fail while traveling.

If we did the door, we could put the hinge to the rear. Open the door it faces toward the dinette.

I was thinking about a drop down bracket, mounted to a hinged door, but that is a lot of moving parts.

More moving parts = more complicated = more loose stuff and rattles. Maybe the kiss method would work best here. Just got our 3010 and this weekend will be it's very first outing.

I had a minor (I mean minor) issue with the height of the tv. Resolved by adding a ottoman. I like the door swing idea. I think too many moving parts, and the fact that I will be watching something while the wife is trying to prep a meal, will not end well. Of Course she can kill me, someone has to drive home.

I am expecting to take delivery of my 3010DS at the end of this month so my only experience is from checking it out at RV shows and dealers.

But, I like the second option. More storage and the option of tilting it just slightly toward the dinette sounds good. The height with the slight down-tilt seemed ok to me.

No Problem

Got a 2013 3010.
We have no problem with the current set up.

Well...it sounds like a door is the right idea. We can never have too much storage. We can still tilt the TV down that way and get access to the back connections a little easier.

Now if I can get a proto on the dual recliners (or maybe a reclining sofa?) that also solves any height issues.

Recliners

I would love to see two recliners in place of the couch as a option.
Been thinking about retro fitting the recliners myself as a DIY project.
For us the couch is a torture rack.
