Grasshopper you must look to the skies :D

The TV mount (in a Diamond Package) is in the upper right corner of the shoreside basement.

5er is in the shop for a install (Thanks Lippert!) Or I would take picts

Hmmm...I am guessing that the mount must be a feature (option) included with the Diamond Package? I am assuming you do not have the Diamond package?

I'll have to go look at mine later today. I saw the coax jack and plug but never really a fan of having a TV outside, figure my TV watching is for late at night before bed in the rig. But that said, I don't remember seeing a mount in mine either. I however, haven't really scoured the compartment, especially looking up and towards the corner.

:crying:man, I looked all over, and so did the Bride,,,,,yes, I got the super deluxe package, with all the bells and whistles,,,,,,,no T.V. Mount however

think I'll call them today and have them send me one just because :roflblack: what I did do however was trace the coax to behind the radio, got a satellite splitter and hooked it up to my DISH,,,,:D

I think the outside mount is package contingent (i.e. Diamond, maybe Platinum)

The A/C outlet & Cable/Satellite COAX plug is on the left side of the basement on our 8289WKS/Diamond.

On the upper right ceiling of the basement is the swing down & out TV mount.

The TV from the bedroon disconnects from the wall and a lever allows you to slip the TV from the mount and take it outside and attach it to the basement mount.

Thoughtful Design point: You can leave the TV hooked up in the basement, swing it out of the way and shut & lock the basement door while you are camping so you do not have to shuttle the monitor back and forth!

TV watching late at night? You are Obviously not a College Football fan :roflblack:

I'll post some picts next week after we get our unit back from the shop

Things may be different for 2014's, but our 2013 8289ws w/Diamond Package does have the TV mount in what I would call the right hand side of the pass-through storage (near entry door). It is mounted to the ceiling of the storage area and folds down and out for use. I will gladly post a picture if you like, but it shouldn't be necessary. If you kneel down and look at the top of your storage you will either see it right away, or you don't have it.

I am not a fan of outside TV's myself, and was considering moving it to replace the bedroom mount for the added adjust-ability.
