Outside Tv

who has added a outside tv to your 3010/3011 ds?

Thanks in advance to you all who have added to your
trailer but I'm interested on how these folks
hung the tv from the side on their rig. Or if they
attached it at all.

On my previous class C, I kept a small TV on a stand for setting on an outside table if there were any events I wanted to see live. I had about 20 extra feet of coax cable rolled up behind the bedroom TV. Whenever I used the outside TV I would just pass the coax through the window. That way I had satellite, park cable, or the amplified antennae signal whichever I was using on the coach.

I had planned on ordering a new 3170DS with the outside TV, but when I was finally ready to buy a really clean 2013 on popped up. As much as I wanted the outside TV, I couldn't justify the price difference.

I thought about trying to install a mount on the outside wall, but the thought of drilling holes makes me a little queezy. Even if I did put a mount on the wall, I would have to figure out a way to run a video cable.

I will probably keep the same outdoor TV on a stand and pass the HDMI cable from the cabover TV out of the window.

In my previous MH, I had an exterior entertainment center ( without the TV) similar to what's available in the Sunseeker/Forester.

I took two L brackets and bent the ends 90 degrees in a vice, to form a hook. I then attached the brackets to the top of a piece of plywood and then attached the TV. When I wanted to use the TV, I would open the door to the entertainment center and hang it over the framing. I put rubber feet on the back of the plywood to protect the side of the coach.

If you run screws into the "belt rail" (where the walls get screwed into the side of the floor, covered with a metal strip) you at least know you have backer.

Made a portable stand so I could move the tv for best viewing without glare on the screen.

I don't think that will be a problem (glare) since
we have sewed a sunscreen together that
slides into the awning track.

Brian where are the "belt rails" ?

"belt rails" are where the walls get screwed into the side of the floor. It's the only looooong metal trim that runs the length of the unit. Should be right at the floor line.
