360IBL Tv mount

Hey all, I am looking for some info on mounting a tv up in the master bedroom. My dealer has proved to be pretty much useless with any info. There is a spot where it states to mount tv here. However I don't know whats the largest mount/tv I can hang. What type of mounting hardware should I use. Much appreciated for any advice. Safe travels.

There will only be a 8"X8"X3/4" board hidden in the wall. Use screws less than 1-1/2" length. This is a JVC 24" with a dvd built in player/with mount.

I ordered mine from the factory and it was not going to make my Columbus Day camping trip so FR swapped my unit with another dealer stock that was already on the assembly line.

I was not getting the TVs that come with them because you can get much better ones for the same price if not cheaper. I did ask the factory rep if they would install the 2 tv mounts that come with the TVs that you purchase through them and they did so at no charge.

The largest I could buy was a 32" for the bedroom. It fits very well and their mount also included a mount on the outside so you could slide the TV up and out to come off the bedroom wall and slide it in the mount outside.



The two middle silver circles go in the mount and slide down. It slides into a tightly notched area so the tv will not move around during travel.




Cable and power outlet in the underneath storage so I power the TV with that when watching it outside.

No problem. I'll get you the measurements of where they drilled this weekend so you can put the plate in the correct spot for mounting.

That was my one fear was screwing up the holes and putting a hole in the wall that was useless and then leaving a damaged wall. I was impressed that the factory was willing to install the mounts without charging me for them.

Will post back this weekend with the measurements.

I don't know why the pics are so big.. oops.

Top left screw from closet wall, 16 3/4"



From the actual ceiling, not the molding in the ceiling/wall corner 12 7/8"



Once you have that screw, you have the template for the rest as long as it is level.

For the outside, measured from the center of the top right screw on the LEFT speaker, 9 1/4". The top of the mount is pretty even with the top of the speaker so use a level to make sure it is straight and you are good to go. Make sure you use sealant around the outside mount so water doesn't go inside the screw holes.

Exactly what I was looking for. Much appreciated.
