For me, there was two reason why I wall mounted vs ceiling mounted the TV in the bedroom...

1 - I absolutely knew for certain that the wall backer was actually there due to the wall mount on the other side of the wall in the living room. The thought of drilling holes on the ceiling, even though the sticker is there saying that there is a TV backer, really did make me nervous.
2 - I also did want the TV a little lower than what the ceiling mount would offer. A little easier on the neck when watching a movie or hockey game.

274DBH Washroom

Just though I would share some "tweaks" I made to the washroom in our 274DBH...

1 - Hand towel ring
2 - Toilet paper holder
3 - Additional towel rack over the door
4 - Backsplash on the wall

[QUOTE=Michael4017;1144755]Sink cover storage using 2 adhesive hooks upside down(saw this in a rv magazine). Attachment 103144

Tv mounted in bedroom-used a piece of wood to keep mount off the wall so the doors can closeAttachment 103145

Could you take a few more photos of the tv mount and how you did that? Love the idea. And the sink cover, ingenious! Gonna steal that idea from you for sure. Wife loves it too. Thanks for sharing.

I deleted all of my pictures and my camper is at the dealership due to cabinet finish bubbling due to water leak. I'll try to explain it:

I measured the distance between the bedroom doors and cut a scrap piece of wood to that width. Depth is also important so the mount is beyond the door closing.

I ordered this mount from Amazon just because it tilts and was small/cheap. Mount-it MI-4602($13)

I purchased 4 lag bolts at the hardware store two I think 2 3/4" and 2 3".

Pre drill your holes in the wood block. I spray painted the block black just to try to hide it better. Then mount your tv mount and enjoy.

I just added the TV to my bedroom in the 26DBH....Beware that the backer behind the main entertainment area is only 3/4" thick.....1/2 the thickness of the wall. I removed my rock wall, cut a hole in the plywood to verify and added a 1x3 in between the bedroom wall and the 3/4" plywood to take away the void in between.

Very cool mods so far. We just purchased a 2017 274DBH. Definitely doing the sink cover mod.

Not sure how to post this but had dealer put in a new switch for step lights because if you turn off the awning led light you have no step lights.
