Question Traveling with TV's

Recently bought a SV264 and have been outfitting it with tv's over the dinette and in the bedroom. Bought a couple of quality mounts that tilt and swivel. The question I have is will the tv's travel ok if left on the mounts? The mounts can be tighted down so they don't move, but I'm wondering if they will work loose from vibration. If necessary the whole tv and mount assembly can be removed from the sleeve that holds the mount. But then I need to find a way to pad and store them. What's been your experience?

I always remove my TV's for traveling. Never know what can happen.

I store them in th protective sleeve they were packed in and place them in the under-bed storage.

I travel with mine in place. My camper would only hold a 20" tv, I made a mode and now have a 32" in it's place, never had a problem.

I got mine just about like yours is Rockwood06. I figure I can just put a bungee cord around the whole thing and it will stay put on the road.

For ours, the TV that came with the trailer (much like the pic above) is mounted pretty tightly in it's place. I leave that one as is. I mounted one in the bedroom and that one I use a bungee cord. It's the flat type that is adjustable and really works great. It holds the TV snug against the cabinet.

Have a newer 5er that came with 3 Tv's in it. They are all wall mounted. Each one has a fabric strap with those adjustable plastic clips to adjust the length of the belt. Attach each side to the wall, and the clip goes in the middle, doesn't allow Tv to swing around. I think they're available at most dealers. When you want to use the Tv, just unclip the belt and you can swing it where you need it.
