TV mount

Just wondering where and how to mount a tv mount on the outside of the trailer, do I use a stud finder? What size screws to use ect. Or should I just pay dealer to do it?

Which rig do you have? My Roo19 has a mount already on the outside.

When we looked at the Shamrocks in 2013 they had a mount outside.

Looks like the black bracket with 2 holes. Meant to accept the mount already attacked to the camper

Yes they were available on later 2013 models, you also have a different type of mount on the back of your tv that came with the Rv to snap on this, the tv in my Rv is non removable unless you literally unscrew it from the back of the tv, I wish I had that style

So on the newer models Roos do people move the TV from the inside to the outdoor mounts when using it outside? I was thinking this would be a pain. Has anyone ever purchased a 2nd TV and ordered the brackets that mount to it. Of course the brackets would be the same that fit in the outside bracket receivers.

If so, are the brackets universal and where did you get them from? Forest River?
thanks

I use ours outside. I added an outlet inside and outside that has hdmi, rca jacks and the cable jack. We enjoy our directv, playstation, Netflix outside when the box and ps3 are inside and through our outside speakers when outside watching tv. I will add a second tv next year hanging from the front bunk end, cause I'm lazy and don't want to turn around when sitting at the dinette. So anyways yes I use it outside, not a huge pain to move, and would like to know where to buy the same mount as well so I don't have to machine one.

How easy was it to add the hdmi? Easy to access?
