TV Mount

We finally bought our first trailer, a 26tbud, and are getting ready for our maiden season. I want to install a tv with a Jensen flat mount and wanted to get some input on the best way to go about it. I will be mounting a 24 inch flat screen. The mount came with 2 inch screws and it seems like they will go through the back of the cabinet. Any suggestions would be appreciated

Not knowing your unit, I would probably just say throw the screws away and through-bolt the mount on with appropriate sized nuts, bolts and washers. The cabinet is maybe only 5/8" thick. Nyloc nuts wouldn't hurt. The weight of a TV + mount can be heavy and you should consider how much weight is hanging off the cabinet and/or ceiling.

If you thru bolt your mount I would suggest using a backing plate on the nut side to spread the load across a larger area.
