Help with mounting TV's

I have looked at past threads and posts and was hoping someone had already done this.

2013 XLR 27 HFS.

I want to mount a 19" led tv on the wall at the foot of the bed, just left of the window. This would be the outside wall. I have purchased a "Mor Ryde" swivel/tilting bracket. I'm not sure how I can find studs in the aluma bonded wall.

I then want to mount a 30" led tv above the cabinets where the stereo is. I don't want to keep taking it down every time we travel. I think this wall has an area with factory installed backing, but I might be wrong. Again I purcahsed a 'Mor Ryde" removeable bracket.

Finally I want to install a bracket in the garage on the wall just below the antenna jack and power receptical. I again think this area is reinforced but not sure.

Any help or suggestions would be appriciated.

Kaboom,
I mounted the TV just to the left of the window, metal stud for awning is there on oposite side.

10x Thanks, mine has a manual awning but there should be a stud in the same area I would think. I just have to find it. Don't want to wait until cold weather to look for frost lines on the outside. Did you mount a tv to the wall above the entertainment counter?

I mounted on the wall to the left of the window. I will try to measure the distance tomorrow for you.

10x, I used a stud finder tonight and it indicates a stud aprox. 6"-8" forward of the window. It appears to be just as you said in line with the awning support. The funny thing is that is the only stud indicated in the entire wall from the window forward. Maybe the stud finder is not accurate, as no other stud was indicated from the window forward.

I took a fine needle and poked it thru the paneling just to make sure I hit a stud before drilling. The needle leaves barely a mark just in case you miss. In my case I was right on.

I just measured my mount. My mounting screws are 3 1/4 inches from the edge of the inside window frame on center. I would think your window is mounted in the same spot. Do the needle idea before you drill to make sure. They could have mounted the window in a different spot. I hope this helps.

10x, Good idea, I was thinking about a small finish nail, but I think the needle is a better way. Thanks for taking the time to measure it.

I was hoping to get the mount centered between the front wall and window. I may have to fabricate something. I just found it strange that there was no indication on a stud forward of the one next to the window.

No problem. I dont know what mount you got, but this is what I bought and it works good. It comes with 2 mounting brackets so you can mount the TV in a different location. It says it works up to a 27 in TV. I just fold the arm toward the left and my TV is centered on the wall. You might want to use the mount you bought above the cabinet by the stereo.

Kaboom,
As far as the 2 other locations they have reinforcement backer behind them. My trailer had stickers on the location of the backer. If your sticker is missing, just tap on the wall and its pretty easy to find the location of the backer. If you have a problem finding them I will measure mine. Let me know.
