I do not have this model, but one similar in design. If you want to get a swivel for the tv it would have to be thin because with the main slide in there is little room to push the television out very much (maybe 3-4 inches). Take that into consideration. After 3 years we still have not broken down and gotten anything to swivel the tv, we figured just turn it off!

thefeniuks..... We use the circuit breaker to turn the water heater power on and off. On our trailer, it's the bottom breaker and is only used for the water heater.
We turn it on in the morning and heat the water while we have our coffee then turn it off until the evening. We've been using this method to heat water for showers and dishes for two years with no issues.
Try it... you'll like it.

We have a 2012 8313ss which we just got last July. The set up for the tv looks the same and the 32" tv does have a swivel mount. Found out by accident when I was trying to see if I could put a swivel mount on. It doesn't swivel alot, but enough to make it better watching tv on the couch.

It is very easy to install a switch inside. there are directions on the forum. I put a lighted switch in my 8313. sure makes it easier.
