Help w wall mount for a TV.

Just bought an Emerson LD195EMX flat screen TV for our 29ft Wildwood TT. My question: Is there an upright 'stud' in the wall between the dinette and the bunk beds? If so, is it wide and strong enough to hold this light (10 lb) Emerson TV? We also have a Sanus F107 single arm, extension mount. However I am very concerned abt this mount because the actual support plate of the mount can not be tightened enough to prevent a 'rotational' wiggle of abt 1/8" up and down on both ends - thus risking major damage to the TV while in transit. Any help wd be appreciated.

Hope this helps...
What I did was when the TV was stowed for travel, I cut a couple of pieces off of the kid's pool noodles to support the TV (helpful if it is stowed above a shelf like mine), and take the weight off of the arm, then I also put a couple of small hook eyes in the wall on either side of the TV and used a very light bungie cord to restrain it against the wall. So far, it has held the TV in place for over 5000 mi, and over some nasty roads too.

Anyone know where the aluminim rib is in the roof or sidewall in the 2010 Flagstaff 8526 is above the bedroom TV shelf? Apparently, the wall bracing photos are top secret.

Or (other than tapping a nail across the wall) is there a reliable way to find the aluminum stud in the wall?

Funny how I always "find" them when I don't want to. I'd imagine that a stud finder would help you out.

Have you tried it? I have one but I am not sure I am seeing a stud.
Do these work on aluminum?

Actually, I haven't tried it. But I would have to imagine those more expensive ones that can also detect metal studs and other things inside/behind walls should do the trick.

To all: thanks for the ideas. Ended up simply setting it up in camp, then stowing it for travel-without a wall mount.
