If there's no sticker on the wall saying place tv "here" then there was no backer installed.
You'll have to rely on the aluminum wall stud to mount bracket , I wouldn't trust it myself.

Our tv sits on the dresser.

Even if you could get it mounted to a wall stud I'd recommend not leaving tv there for travel.

I thought this too, but there was no sticker in mine but I was able to find the backer. I don't remember where, but somebody gave me estimated measurements , and I know I hit solid backing directly above the window where I mounted a 23" tv.

I thought Sam had posted about locations of backers in the original "Ask the Sabre Factory" thread back in my early days.

Mine is mounted above the dresser. I had a TV backer sticker, but you can use a magnet to find it. I have pics posted somewhere around here how I found it.

Problem is our plug in and cable hook-up is at the front down low at the dresser on our 2011.
I assume his would be similar?

Could always use extension cord for cable wire, or just make a longer one, and then mount a surge protector on the dresser (behind DVD player to hide it a little.) of course I'm guessing the new one will have it on the ceiling

Slideout glide bar

Just to the point of where the screw is. I have watched as the slid goes in and out and at this point it seems secure. I'm concerned about the future of this situation though. I guess I'm just looking for some guidance from you as to what I need to do. Fix it of course. LOL

Dear Wowzer,
The white bar you see cracked needs to be replaced. If you let this go, it can damage the bottom of the slideout floor. I apologized for the problem, but we are at the mercy of the vendor who produced the bar. If you send me your vin number and full name, I will have our warranty department log this issue in our service system. This will help expedite the authorization process.

Again, I'm sorry for the problem.

Dear Okietom,
I will try and locate the information that you are requesting. If you decide to hang the TV on the wall, I believe we recommend a TV no larger than 22" due to weight. I will be in touch.
