Bedroom TV install in 2015 Wildcat Maxx 28RKX
OK, so I've decided to attempt install of a TV in the bedroom. The ceiling has a 110 and 12V plate and the system TV power booster is at the same spot a little inside the bedroom entry door. I already have the mount for this job, if I do it, and it mounts vertically with at least 2 screws but the bolts that came with it would probably be poking through the outside wall!
Due to space for the slider door to close off the bathroom when the closet slide is open, the only mounting place would be on this curb side wall of the bedroom. The trailer had no place marked or indicated for any TV install in the bedroom other than the power receptacle end of it, so last November when I picked up the trailer at the dealer after getting its annual inspection I asked the tech where one should be mounted.
He indicated to mount the swivel mount right at the seam where two wall panels are joined with a tape overlay to be on and into an aluminium "stud". He asked what size TV was I planning, I told him the plan is to use the 26 inch that came with the trailer from the living room and get an easier to see 32 inch TV for the living room.
He went to the shop and came back with a screw he'd picked up and it looked to be about a 1 inch universal type screw and said "do not go any larger than this because of the bonded wall!"
So I'm throwing this out for anybody that's already done this? Was it worth the install? Any problems with having a TV mounted on the sidewall this way? I know about securing it for travel but I'm talking about the weight pulling out at all with the smaller screws?
This is a spring upgrade plan as at this point everything is still buried in snow, so about a month or so more before I can get working in the trailer and do this. Thanks in advance for any ideas.
