That looks good! I am going to start looking at TVs for our TT and will have to put that one on the list of options.

There is no satellite hookup. Also you wont be able to run a satellite signal thru the factory wiring. The circuit board that switches between cable and antenna signal will affect your satellite signal.
To work around that I am feeding my satellite in signal using the outside cable jack by my entry door back to the ceiling jack module. I drilled a hole through the access plate and filled it with a 75 ohm adapter.
Works great and let me know if you would like photos

I have two Vizio TV's in my 5'ver...both from Walmart.

A 32" and a 26".

As far as I'm concerned...Vizio is the best brand of TV's out there!

Post up those pics if you dont mind. I run one satellite cable from
My winegard carryout thru the bedroom window
And another cable under the rig to the outside tv.
I would love to find out how to use the factory inlets and outlets with an adapter. If you could a step by step discrirpion that would be all the better! Thank you again!

Please share!!

So sorry for the late response. The roof mounted cable jack actually has 3-4 jacks up in the roof. 3 of those jacks are dedicated lines being 1) cable input 2) antenna and remaining jacks are the outputs to various locations (outside, bedroom, living area, etc). Once you determine which line feeds the outside jack simply remove it from the roof splitter. Next you will have to drill a hole through the plate large enough to accept any standard cable extender adapter. Secure the loose cable from the outside jack to the cable extender and now you will have a dedicated input for the satellite.Click image for larger version

The easiest way to identify which cable (any remaining that are not hooked to jacks labeled Antenna or Cable) feeds the outside jack would be to hook up a tv outside and feed it any OTA signal. Disconnect the remaining cables one at a time in order to find the correct one.
Good luck

Good to hear the wall mount is holding up to the punishment of bouncing down the road!

Is that just the factory plastic/polymer v mount that you're using? Did you have to get a 200x200 adapter for it? And does hang out the exterior mount with any problems? I've got a 2018 264CK that I suspect has the same mount as yours and size for the entertainment center. The 32" TV we were using last summer is just too small.

The Vizio 43" has the Vesa 200 x 200 mounting holes...

I had to go with the Vizio 32" as my expensive wall swivel locking mounts from CW has the Vesa 100 x 100 mounting holes.

I could probably fit a 50" TV in that spot, but in reality, a 32" TV is more than enough size for viewing in my 5'vers living room.

But the entertainment center looks kind of funny with that smaller TV in there.

But not as funny as it did with the old 26" Vizio (see photo)...

Thanks. I suspect the OP has the same wall mount that I do, which has a 100x100 plate. Amazon sells a 200x200 to 100x100 adapter, so I wanted to get some real world feedback from someone who put a TV heavier than a 32" on the wall. Forest River's official stance is that the plate supports TVs up to 32".

Yep. many adapter plates available.

Can you tell what the mounting screws go into by removing one?
Many times a small wire in the removed screw hole as a probe will tell you if there is something substantial behind there or simply hollow.

There's definitely something (wood) substantial behind the plate, it was already affixed to the wall when I took delivery. I installed a similar bracket, after checking with a studfinder, in the bedroom. The backer location was about 8 inches by 8 inches. I haven't removed any of the screws from the the main tv mount, but I will check this weekend.

A lot of the TV mounts give weight ratings for up to a certain size TV from the LCD flat screen days.

Today's LED TV's are half the weight of the older LCD's.

That being said, most 32" TV's and bigger TV's have the larger Vesa 200 x 200.

In my search I found the Vizio, TLC and Sharp 32" models top be the only ones with the Vesa 100 x 100.

Do you mean the mount? The standard one from the factory is the same size across model years.
