Mount points for TV in 265RLDS

We just purchased a 2015 Surveyor 265RLDS. On our second trip, the TV had pulled loose from the wall and fell to the floor when I opened the slide. The antenna jack was ripped from the TV and other cables were damaged. I went to Wal Mart and bought a replacement so I could watch TV. My dealer now has the RV for repairs. When I get the RV back, I would like to install the new TV in the bedroom. I have ask Forrest River about mounting points for a wall mount, but have had no answer. Does anyone know if there are backer boards or other strong place on the side wall in the bedroom.

When I replaced the tube TV in the bedroom of our 5er I used an articulating mount. I found the studs with a standard stud finder and spanned them with a piece of 1"x6". I eased the edges with a router and stained it to match my cabinetry. It has survived many bumpy rides in the past 9 years.

I bought a 2010 Surveyor 302RL it had no tvbought a 32" Vizio at Wally World. The mount I bought for 27-48" tv was massive, so much so that I ended up returning it. For now I just sit the tv on the 4" ledge of the recess for the tv. I take it down and tuck it in bed when on the road. I had to modify the stock y shaped feet, ie: (cut them down on the bandsaw) so they would fit the space.i cut the back leg aboit a 16th of an inch shorter so it would lean back a tiny bit in the space, making it pretty stable. On of the reasons I returned the wall mount, was I xouldnt find the studs behind the space for the tv. Youcan see numerous holes in the wall where the last owner has a mount, and a couple of tiny spots in the bathroom wall where they had screwed through both walls. I dont think theres nothing between the two walls, maybe air. Thinking of making a board with hooks for towels/clothes to go on that wall in the bathroom. That way I could mount the tv on theother side of the wall with a French Cleat, and just screw right into the board with long screws.
