TV mount/weight

I was wondering if the tv mount on the wall could handle the weight of a 32" tv??
Next Question; the radio is a furrion and it has a AV mode, so im guessing in this mode you can play movies on your tv using this radio as long as your tv has an av input you can connect to ??

What TV did you guys buy for your toy hauler and are you happy with it ??

I have been going over my trailer preparing for a long road trip this year. When I took down the TV, I noticed it was mounted to a 1 by 3 piece of pine. The mount looked secure until I checked the board. It was simply screwed into the thin wall material. I will be securing it to the cabinet.
The radio is also a DVD player and the leads are in the back of the cabinet.

Be sure the mount is secured to at least 1 stud. 32" tv will be fine. Any 32" TV of your choosing from Walmart or Best Buy. If you're a hardcore boondocker you might want to look into a 12 volt TV. Some TV's with an inline transformer in the power cord are 12 volt.

This "PAW" type TV mount that is installed in "most" campers is limited to 30Lbs or less.
Beyond that, you would need to trust the installer to have mounted it correctly.
Hope this helps.

I have a 32 inch Samsung mounted with the PAW mount that Muletrain shared, I haven't had any issues.

Is the 32 inch tv the biggest possible? Also has anyone put an arm mount in to change angle or is it best to stick with the paw mount? Thanks
