I just installed a 20" on a full motion bracket in the cabinet by the microwave. Got the idea from TN_Cruise_Lite in the thread above but did a couple things different. I removed the microwave and noticed a gap between the cabinet and microwave so I basically created my own stud by putting a 1x4x6 in there for the mounting bracket. It fit nicely with no interference of the microwave. I used this bracket that will lock down when traveling and it's viewable from everywhere. http://m.campingworld.com/shopping/i...er-mount/51564

When in locked position it sticks out past the cabinet but just swings to corner and out of the way when parked so it's not an issue. This allows for a bigger tv to fit there (I already had the 20" otherwise I would have gotten a 24). I still have to run a cord track up the wall to hide cables but may put in a dvd/blue ray first. Pictures below, the last two are angles from the bed and bunks.

It fits great and I like the locking feature. I'll put a review up after I actually travel with it.

Do you think a 24" tv fit the same way?

I have it in my TT. 4 years and no problems at all with it. My tv set screen is either 22 or 24 inches.

Yes. In the locked position it will obviously stick out more over the counter but that shouldn't matter when traveling. There is plenty of room to swivel a 24" in the corner. When I upgrade I will get a 24"

I did the same, backer board in the microwave wall, through bolt, walmart full motion mount, easy seen from the bed and turn it when we eat at the table. However.....my tv is a 19 vizio led but runs on 12 volts. It can plug into the 120v but it has a transformer to step it down to 12v dc...so I just got a cig adaptor and bammmmm....TV while boondocking...or when I'm in it doing more mods while not plugged into the house.. Also I have a factory 12volt socket on my cable and amp plate...I don't see that on any of the pics....hmmmmmmm...

Salem Cruise Lite 195BH TV mount

My tv is a 12v also but right now only have it plugged in to the 120v outlet. Was thinking about how I could get 12v to it. You have 12v socket????

I do indeed have a 12v socket, cable outlet and antenna amp button all on the same wall plate....and....consider this...that antenna amp uses 12volts...so if u have the antenna on the roof and a button on the wall to turn it on,,,,then u already have 12v there. Look up a winegard rv 7012. It will prob fit in that same hole you already have. If not....your porch light would be 12v too and the switch is close to the cable outlet....just a few ideas.....

Wish they had installed that on mine. But you only have one cable jack? My plate has one for cable and one for satellite. I have the button to turn on the antenna but never thought of that being 12v. How long can you use tv and antenna on battery when boon docking? Or do you use a generator?
