Surveyor Sport 260 mod

We have had our SP260 for a bit and have only camped in our drive way so far. But one thing did strike us as a bit odd, the entertainment center has a swivel TV mount that swivels clockwise so the master bedroom room can watch TV.. Well if we are sitting at the dinette table we thought it would be better to have the TV swivel counter clockwise so the television would face straight on to the table. All I did was remove the stop on the left side and screw it onto the right side. A simple mod, our stop was stapled on with 5 staples, I gently pulled it off, ground off the staple tines and counter sunk two short wood screws to reattach it.

Nice job fixing that. That sounds like a mixup at the factory as our TV swivels towards the dinette. The viewing angle on the TV is pretty limited so not being able to point it at the dinette would be a major bummer.

Thanks for the input Quackor. We only saw one SP260 in our TT search and its the one we bought so we didn't have another one to compare it to. And we wondered why they had it rotate that way. LOL

Our dinette in the 220 is on the port side in a slideout, and the TV swivels clockwise, which means we can angle the TV toward the dinette, though we seldom do. Ours came with a Jensen TV that seems to work pretty well when viewed from an angle, even the additional angle that the slideout creates. Probably helps that we usually sit near the far end of the dinette, too.

Excellent work in getting the TV to turn in the direction you need. I agree with the poster who said the factory probably got confused. With the 220 and 260 having the same entertainment center but dinettes on the opposite sides, I can see how that could happen. Glad to know there's a fix.
