Travel with tv on wall???

I just installed a 27 LCD tv using the factory mount. We are heading out tomorrow for our first trip in the 21RR. Is it ok to leave the tv on the wall mount while hauling or should I take it down and store it somewhere else?

If it's securely installed you can leave it there. We leave both TV's (one on the factory installed mount, one in the bedroom on a mount we installed ourself) in place and have no problems.

Woudn't be a bad idea just to double check the screws are still good and tight before each trip though.

We've not had any issues with the tv/mount I installed myself using an inexpensive mount from Best Buy.

Can't see it being a problem.

We leave our 32"-er on it's factory mount...

We live in California. We have the nation's worst roads...even worse than the northbound out of OK City!. Our mattress comes off the bed at times... We remove ours from the bedroom mount.

We have both and have traveled with them 5 times so far. Haven't moved once not even a half an inch.

Leave mine up. Hit some rough roads last weekend and it didn't budge. If I ever mount a TV in the bedroom I'll probably take it down for travel.
