TV wall mounts inside and out.

Our cable/power outlets are on the back of the TV, so, I can't get the TV to slide into the built in mounts. Suggestions?? BTW...I searched for this topic before posting.

TIA!

Are you trying to slide the TV off the mount or slide it onto the mount?

I don't know how to help you. Maybe pictures of the mount on the trailer and on the TV would help. Is it just a matter of fishing around until the mounts line up?

The cords are on the back of the TV, so, they are stopping the TV from sliding into the mount.Click image for larger version

With that mount you'll probably need 90deg angle connections, you can get one for the coax at WM or RS. There are also 90deg power cords.

I see you're trying to mount the tv to the outside mount and there is limited space between the wall of the trailer and the backside of the tv. I might think about adding some spacers between the tv and the mount so that you can get the clearance you need. I say the tv and not the wall of the trailer so you won't have to worry about compromising the seal. Try you local hardware for some 1/2 inch spacers and don't forget you'll probably need some longer screws too. Good luck.

That's a good idea too.

Looks like you could put some washers or spacers between the TV mount and the TV. Make sure the screws don't go through the led panel though. I intend to get this same mount for the bedroom wall and the outdoor wall. One less TV to carry. My TV connections are on the side of the unit fortunately.
