outdoor television mount

We just bought a 2014 Heritage Glen 300BH. We love it. We're trying to find what bracket to buy to attach a small television to the exterior. There is a mount on the trailer, from the factory. But have no idea what kind of bracket to buy. Anyone have any experience with this?

I know the feeling. When we were looking at our Flagstaff 27BESS, I noticed the mount on the outside and the cable hook-up. When I asked what the mount was for, the salesperson was surprised I didn't know it was for a TV. Strange looking attachment point - but where do you by the mount that uses it?

We have the same problem on our 2014 27WP. Haven't had anywhere to hook it to cable to trace the problem except in the campground but then we're too busy camping. We just cut a hole in the screen and run the wire into the camper through the window. You'd think they'd check this stuff at the factory before they ship them out. The dealer displayed air TV when we bought it cuz he didn't have cable. But this is a stupid annoying problem and Forrest River should be ashamed that they let this kinda stuff slip by.

I've seen those brackets on ebay. We never use ours, if you do you gotta sit right in front of the TV and besides they'll only hold a 19" TV. We set up a little folding table outside and put a 32" flat screen on it and turn it so we can see it wherever we are sitting

Our puma we had had 2 of those brackets (shown above in previous post) and the tv side of it too. We had one in the living room/bedroom spin around wall thing for the 32" tv, and one on the outside. We hung our kids 19" tv on it and the 32" with no problems.

Have your dealer contact forrest river to see if you can get a mount from them, or maybe look on ebay

Don't think I'd like that type, you can't swivel it. I mounted ours to the RVQ grill rail on a 2 way swivel.
