How does "TV backer board " work?

Rookie question here, but I have a 2012 Rockwood 2702 ultralight trailer. In the bedroom, their was a sticker that said TV Backer board and has a plug and a coax cable connection. Clearly, this wall at the foot of our bed was designed to have a TV mounted. However, I'm not sure how thick it is, how much weight it will hold and where the backer board is. Any advice?

I spoke with our salesman today, (former service tech) and he informed me that there is a 10" block in this location intended for mounting the TV. This is a common practice in homes and industrial construction, especially when metal frames are used. This is probably the same method they used at the factory for mounting of the cabinetry.

Sometines called a backer in construction. Thin paneling in campers and even sheetrock can't support anything as heavy as a tv even with molly type fasteners so wood is mounted behind the paneling to mount the bracket to. It's that wood that's located for mounting the tv bracket.
