Another TV mount question

I have the plastic TV mount inside and outside. Is it necessary to take the 32" TV off the mount during travel?

I don't recall ever seeing a plastic TV mount. Is it an articulating mount or solid mount? Have you considered calling the manufacturer and asking the question. If they can't tell you I don't know who could. Until I got it verified, I believe I'd take it off the mount and store the TV on the bed during travel until I had a solid answer!

I have the same mount and put that on an articulating mount and have had no issues.

Well I wouldn't trust a plastic TV mount.

We had that same tv mount inside and outside. It is manufactured by P.A.W.
We use 32 inch flat screens inside and outside. Before we took delivery from our dealer, he replaced our inside mount that was like yours with a heavier duty type once he learned that we were going to use a 32 inch flat screen. Our dealer mounted our tv on the new beefed up mount prior to us taking delivery, so I've never seen the new mount. I just know that he didn't think our mount like yours would hold that size tv on our terrible Louisiana roads. I do use a mount like you have for a 32 inch tv outside our camper and a 32 inch tv on our back deck at home without any issues.

I have a 40 vizio smart tv on the plastic thing. I also lift the 40 off and carry it outside and slide it on the plastic thing on the outside between the speakers. Works fine.

30 LB max rated

It all boils down to if you are comfortable with it. Apparently you aren't so I'd take the tv off for travel or replace the mount with a sturdier one just for your peace of mind

I have a mount that should hold twice the weight of the tv but I still take it off when traveling as I know how much everything jiggles around back there. And I've seen the backing boards the mount screws are in

We have a 254Q, it has the same mount as you have it is metal but take our 32" TV off and put it on the bed during travel, just don't trust it bouncing down the road.

No it's not what? And what type of 4hr tow? People tend to take a lot of "well then it's going to be OK when they read something.
Nice rig.

I had been taking my TV off, but found it to be such a pain that when I brought the TV out this year from the house for the winter, I just left it on it's factory base and it sets up on the ledge instead of the mount. I figured if I'm just taking it down anyways, whats the point of actually hanging it on the wall.....now I can turn it towards the couch for easier viewing as well without the cost of the articulating mount.

I keep my TV on the wall mount while traveling. So far, zero issues. 32" TV on it. I'm comfortable leaving it on there.

I have the same mount and a 32" tv. I leave it on the wall with no problems. The tv is new and only weighs 11 lbs.
