Roo 23IKSS Rear Bunk TV Mount Question

Does anyone know where the backing mount points are on the rear Bunk Wall opposite the Bathroom Shower. I want to Mount a TV and there is a plate that says TV Backer but I don't know where that is behind the wall? I don't want to screw thru the entire wall and need to know what Size Screws to use?

I really went back and forth about installing a TV in the kids bunk. My opinion is they should be out in the woods enjoying the outdoors. But on days with bad weather, It's a great sitter.

You don't have a lot of room on the backer, so you need to be careful. The "Backer" is about 5 inches to each side from center and about 6 inches top and bottom from center.

I installed a small TV and used 1 1/4 inch screws. Unless you are installing a 55 inch flat panel, that should suffice.

I would use the smallest mount you can find. I used a $19.00 mount I was able to find at Micro Center. I'm sure amazon has a small one as well.

And TV. This bunk is used by my son and daughter, so this size is just perfect for them.
Hope that helps, but I'm sure others will have additional info to add and always welcomed.

Remember, if you go thru the wall, at least you'll have a place to hang your towel in the center of the shower.

Happy Camping.

Ok great thanks I was going to install a 24" that I already have but I have to measure I think my bracket will be within those specs will measure before 4th of July. GF's daughter and her friend will be with us and I have the whole RV wired with an Apple Mac Mini with all our music and movies 1200+ so from either TV they can watch one movie via WiFi and we can watch a different one. I am in IT so bought the Mini so I don't have to carry the MacBook Pro bc I have a wireless Mouse and Kybd so we can even use it to look stuff up and carry a small portable USB printer. GF is always finding deals but you have to print coupons so set this up and never have to worry anymore Roo is wired to the hilt with Capacity 😜

I mounted a 2nd TV in my 233s, and used a regular stud-finder to locate the plywood backer. Worked great.

It's been a while, so I don't remember. I drilled a pilot hole to estimate the plywood depth. Maybe you can do the same.

Do you happen to know what size screws you used to mount the bracket?
