Slide in TV Mount

Our new Wolf Pack 19WP has a TV mounting bracket inside and outside like this...



The mating piece is on the back of the TV that was included from the dealer. I am trying to find an extension/swivel arm that will mate with this and am not having any luck. I looked on the manufacturer web site for the bracket (PAWInternational.com) and can't even find the mounting bracket.

Does any else have this type of bracket? Have you been able to find an arms that will mate with it?

Thanks!

This looks exactly like the mounts I have in my new Prime Time Lacrosse (which is a division of Forest River). I have one in the bedroom, one on the outside of the TT and one on my swing arm mount in the living area. I had trouble finding the half I needed to install on the back of my second LCD TV for the bedroom. I could only find it direct from my trailer manufacturer.

Use the contact link at www.primetimerv.com and leave Brandon a message about what you are looking for. I know they have swing arm mounts because one came with my new TT.

Thanks! I wonder if Brandon will be confused by a non-Prime Time owner calling him? Maybe someone at Cherokee has access to the same mounts?

Since Cherokee is a Forest River product and Prime Time is a separate division of Forest River, I think that's why they use the same mounts (same supplier).

Brandon's pretty sharp. I'm sure he will listen and either send you what you need (for a price of course) or point you in the right direction. I had no luck trying to find the TV side only mount I needed for my second TV anywhere (including the internet). Just make sure you are ready to tell him what size mount you need for the TV side. All the television manufacturers use what they call a "VESA" standard mounting pattern on the back of their TV's. You'll have to measure yours and let him (or whoever you find) know what size you need for the TV side. And, it's in milimeters in a square or rectangular pattern (ie;100mm X100mm, 200mm X 100mm etc.).

Good luck !!

Did anyone find a place to buy these? I just emailed my dealer to see if they have them. I might have a TV for the outside and will need the bracket for the TV only.

I haven't pursued the suggestion to call Brandon at Prime Time. I hope to have time to do that next week.

I decided to contact PAW International and received the following reply this morning...

Quote:
Thank you for your inquiry. We developed and supply the TV bracket to Forest River.
The bracket was not designed to support an extension arm and I would not recommend attempting to add one. The equation is force times distance and installing say a one foot arm between the bracket and TV could easily overload the bracket causing it to fail and damage your TV. There are several metal brackets on the market that are designed for your purpose. I would highly recommend using one of these and save yourself from possible damage to your TV.
Considering that the external mount (shown in the picture above) is cut into the outside of the trailer, this isn't good news. Also, i find it interesting that FR would choose a mount like this if it isn't designed for anything but the TV mounted directly to it. Almost every picture I see of the interior of an RV has the TV on a swivel arm of some sort.

I guess I'll look into a different mount for the inside and just not use the TV outside since I doubt I can replace the outside one without damaging the exterior of the trailer.

If you can tolerate not have a swing arm outside, you could buy a swing mount for inside and attach that dovetail mount to the part the TV end of the mount. You might need to drill new holes in the dovetail mount. This way you can still move the TV. You will only need to make sure there is good solid structure where the inside mount is currently located. I am assuming we are not talking about a 42 inch or bigger TV.

This site has a good selection and good prices.

Thanks... I thought about that and will probably go that route. I'm not sure how to determine the structure where the current mount is located. Is it safe t assume that the manufacturer would have reenforced that area? Or am I dreaming?

I guess that also assumes that the existing mount has a hole pattern that matches one of the VESA standard patterns on the arm.

I'll be picking up my TT from storage tomorrow so I can de-winterize it. I will take pics of the mounts on the rear of the TV and the swing arm mount inside and post them for you. I hope this will help you see the total design of the mounting system as the TT came from Prime Time Manufacturing.
