TV mount in bedroom

I have a tv mount I want to add to the bedroom of my 282rk hemi, what is the best type of screws / wall braces to use to secure it. The walls seem so thin and I don't want to have the tv tear the wall apart....or put a screw in and have it come out the other side.

You will have to mount it to a either a wall backup plate(factory installed) or you may be able to go directly into a wall stud using the correct anchors.

So best to talk to my dealer or fish a plate in through the cable wire hole.

Or see if there is a stud near by.

If the plate isn't factory installed, there isn't a way to get one in there and secured, as the walls are foam filled. Mounting to a stud or across 2 studs is about your only alternative, and even that will only accept a TV up to a certain weight. I wouldn't hang 50" on an RV stud.

Just a fyi. I took the mount to the dealer and they were able to mount it to the right of the power outlet. No problems at all......thanks for the advise. (Oh and he didn't charge me....even better)

Could you post some measurements and pictures of it installed. Also what type of mount you used and where you bought it.

I have the same TT and would like to do the same thing.

Thanks Tim.
