Try dealer or some of these seem the same mounts .

Our Puma came with two different mounts .

Thanks Oaklevel. I'm camping this afternoon and will look that my inside connection looks like yours. If it does then it would be compatible with the outside bracket. My outside bracket looks more like the originator of this thread's picture

I'm a directv subscriber. What I do is bring a receiver from home, and hook that up inside the Roo.

I've got two Hdmi cables - one for inside use, and one that is 30' for outside use.

Instead of having to bring the tv and receiver outside, all I have to do is remove the tv and unplug the shorter Hdmi, etc.

The 30' Hdmi cable runs from my 23ss "tv area" out the door and down the side of the Roo, over the door inside and out the dinette window, or I run it through my front tent end of the Roo and then to the outside tv (the best option in my opinion).

Works for me.

Bob and Kelly,
The TV does pull out from the wall a bit but I have not looked behind it yet. Since I didn't know that gizmo was for holding the TV I didn't think about removing it from. I'll have to go out there today and check this out.

I'm not sure about watching TV outside. It might be okay as long as I don't disturb other campers.

I never thought about having it outside to show the grandkids what an "outdoor" movie theater was like.....good one.

The bracket can also, especially in pairs, be used to hold an outdoor grill on certain models. Our RV had 3 brackets, two to use as a pair for an outdoor grill and one by itself for the TV. I have a friend who had an aluminum framed trailer and he installed additional brackets being sure to tap into one of the metal studs. He used s silicone adhesive to seal the screw holes and used expanding wall anchors for drywall to hold the weight of a larger, stainless steel grill he uses outside. He uses a 5 gal propane tank and regulator to supply the grill. He claims it works well. I have no experience.

You were right. The TV wall bracket has the same mount on the wall as it does on my kitchen slide. Just unplug the tv, cable, hdmi and audio jacks and it is free. Will find a suitable cable in my basement to put in the trailer just in case I want to watch it outside. Will not be able to use the outside speakers because the TV will not be hooked up to the entertainment unit through the RCA jacks.

I have a 233s. I was also sad there was not an hdmi hook up outside. There is an easy fix:

You need a twenty foot hdmi cable. Disconnect the stereo and pull it out. Remove the microwave. Connect the 20ft hdmi cable to an extra hdmi out connection in the back of the stereo. Fish the cable behind the microwave and down the side of the pantry. You will see lots of wires behind the microwave running down the false cavity on the side of the pantry. Remove the false back of the lower pantry cabinet. You will see the outside opening for the lp gas line for the grill. Run the hdmi through that

Now when the tv is outside open lp gas hatch and your hdmi will be waiting for you with 5 extra feet of extension to connect to the tv.

This is for the 233s layout but if you have the lp gas outlet near the tv there should be a way to get an hdmi from the stereo to that opening.
