How to secure TV when traveling

Hey fellow campers! Need some ideas on how I can secure/support a television that is wall mounted on a positionable mount that does not have a locking mechanism.

My concern is that though I hit a stud when mounting I am concerned that bouncing etc. will eventually loosen or break it free.

I donít like having to detach it every time as itís a pain.

I was thinking of using a strap or something but wanted to get a few other ideas.

Also, Iíd donít have a picture right now so weíll have to use our imagination.

Tv is 26Ē flat panel tv.

Go by a Primer Time dealer and have a look at the 330RST . It uses two straps and works well.

Or get one of these from Camping World:

https://www.campingworld.com/master-...er-mount-small

There is a larger one for bigger TV's.

I have two of them and have had them for five years in two different campers.

Love them and no straps needed!

All 3 tvs in my 5er came with a strap that is mounted to wall. They have a snap buckle. Once snugged up only need to buckle after.

Not sure about your setup, but my TV is mounted in an alcove of sorts above the range hood. I cut about 16" from a hollow pool noodle then split it lengthwise along one side. When the TV is pushed all the way in, I stuff the noodle between the bottom of the set and the shelf below it, with the edge of the screen in the split side. There is very little clearance there so it's a tight fit, taking the load off the mount. So far the TV has stayed in place for several lengthy trips.

Mine has 2 straps that hold it to the wall above a shelf. I have over 10,000 miles on my rig with no problems. It's on my departure check list so I never forget it.

Smile How to secure TV when traveling

We have a 39" flat panel. We use a flat bungee cord with eye bolts mounted above and below TV. Actually my son-n-law mounted the bolts and TV for us.
