Did you scrap the tv mount that was there for that 39"? Or are you keeping the smaller tv on it for the garage mount or outdoor mount? I'm also replacing the tv in mine for something bigger.

I attached some pics of the finished project. I ditched the cheesy looking faux rock panel and behind it is a real piece of wood to attach the tv mount to. I also added one more piece inside the cabinet so I could utilize some heavy decking screws to make sure the tv never falls while in tow. One of the pics is a row of hooks I added under the switch panel cabinet for keys and hats. The only reason for that pic is those are bronzed hooks that were a dollar for a pack of 20 at walmart. IF you remove the faux rock panel, you will have 4 screw holes and those hooks are great for filling the 4 holes and being able to add a strap over tv while in tow. As for the 24" tv and mount, they are in the original box under the bed now. LOL


You will also notice the mount I used allows the tv to slide out to the left as you are looking at it by about 5" for full view of screen.

For all those that may be wondering, last night I ditched the 24" LG TV and mounted a 39" Insignia TV and a Insignia 20.00 TV mount on the wall where the 24" was. The FAUX rock stuff looked pretty mickey mouse to me, so I removed it. The 39" TV fits absolutely PERFECT!!! I bought everything at best buy and it was 280.00 incl sales tax.


I opted for going overboard as I usually do, and cut a 20" piece of 5/4 decking board to put inside the cabinet directly behind TV mount so that I could use 2+1/2" deck screws and make the mount rock solid. I really believe the TV can now stay on the mount when in tow.

I am FINALLY done modifying the 27RR! I traded it for a Puma Unleashed 351 THSS 5th wheel. LOL


The 27RR is a awesome unit and a lot of bang for the buck, just decided we wanted more and found a dealer willing to make more happen at a really good price.

Can someone with a 1/2 ton give me some insight as to what I can expect?
Bought our 2014 27RR last fall n towed it 10 miles home with my new chev suburban.....I told my wife we "Need More Truck" ! She bought me a 2014 F250 powerstroke lariat crew cab ! No special towing apparatus needed ! Put 15 K on the rig with two Harleys in the Garage from Minnesota to Arkansas, West Coast,east coast ect over winter...installed two "Condor" quick release plates in garage floor for Harlys"....when the Harleys arnt in it its rigged forsteelhead and salmon flyfishin. I added a floor to ceiling whit board over portside wheelwerll in garage then from that board to the overhead bin a close rod of one inc pipe to hang vests waders cloths n jackets. lower part of white board (against toilet wall) has 3 plastic"Bag shelves for maps books n tools. Slideout framing screws rattle loose very 40 miles so solution to this is coming. Did wheel bearing grease at ten K ...added two more batteries on a HD tray behind gas supply. Most important is get tubes of silicone caulk ....get underneath AND CAULK EVERY ELECTRICAL AND MECHANICAL PENETRATION ENCAPSULATE WIRING HARNESE To PREVENT VIBRATION DAMAGE....after a day to set up then get back under ther and "Insure the mechanical (plumbing, tankage) and Electrical support system" Note" get Rubber spray or Rustoleum spray and Paint your "Pre Rusted" steel gas main to the first copper fitting ! loaded diesel mileage at 65mph is 14+ mpg...with addition of inflatable bage at rearramp door for streamlining hoping for 17 plus...photos on next post
