Rear TV Mount 2015 233s

Was wondering if anyone has mounted a TV for the rear bunks along the side of the refrigerator ? There is a power outlet and cable hook up but no mount for the tv.
Thanks

I did, in my 2014 233s. I found a TV mount with the same receiver as the factory mount. I didn't want to keep disconnecting the factory TV when the kids wanted to watch movies in bed or outside. So I bought a TV/DVD unit. This way the factory TV stays in place. Pretty easy to install.

Was there something behind the wall to screw to? I don't know if my 2015 has anything behind it.

We wanted to do the same. There was a factory sticker that said mount the bracket here. Not so, there was nothing behind it. So three holes later we ended up using a stud finder and just pressing against the paneling to feel for a stud.

Mine was not a stud. From what I could tell, it was a square piece of wood, assuming plywood, about 8x8. I also used a stud finder and 'traced' out the shape before drilling. Did you get the bracket installed?

Does it stay attached while traveling? I really like that idea as well. Might help the kids behave while laying in the bunk ends so mom and dad can have some peaceful quiet time by the fire

We have TV hanging fine. I would not have it mounted while traveling just case. It seems solid but I error on the not taking a chance.

I will have to check and see if there is something behind the wall when I get home tonight. Where did you get that mount?
