New Owner and I have questions

We purchased a 2010 Rockwood Roo 17 as a "left over" and absolutely LOVE IT and the time we spend together in it. I do have 2 questions

1) When and how should I waterproof the bump outs? As I stated we have had the Roo for going onn3 years and haven't done it since we purchased it.

2) Where can I mount a hanger for a 19inch LCD TV? I see in the newer model year trailers the manufacturer places a marker where a mount can be placed. Mine did not have one of these markers when it was purchased.

Thanks for any help you can give me.

there's no need to "waterproof" the canvas bunk ends(not bump outs). it's not plain canvas, it's vinylized canvas and is already virtually waterproof.
you should wet the seam, since the threads need to swell and fill the holes.
this should have been mentioned in the handout from the canvas manufacturer, in your paperwork.
Bump outs/Tip outs are old terms for slideouts.

as for the tv, you might look for pics of a newer Roo/Shamrock 17 and see where they mounting it.
