No, but was thinking of buying a small LCD to keep in the compartment where the cable and elec. hook ups are located. I would then get a small collapsible table to put it on. Nothing exotic in the way of setting it up.

Just did.

Ours is a 390QS. We did a 32 " TV in the side compartment. Worked out great and far less than the $1500 option.

I used the first compartment on the passenger side. It was equipped with a cable hookup and power outlet (we have a 2011). All I did was to remove the shelves that were there, and use the stand that came with the TV. I drilled two whole through the bottom of the compartment to hold the TV in place. I can still pull the TV if needed. Worked really well.

Any chance you can shot a few photos for us that are still trying to visualize?

Thank you!

TV

I have used the same setup as TMMAR suggested. I am probably going to cut two of the three shelves in the compartment with the cable outlet so that I can attached the base of the tv to the bottom floor of the compartment allowing me to close the door, hopefully there will not be too much vibiration to damage the tv, may put some kind of shock absorbing material between the tv base and the floor, still in the design stages Will send photo when finished.

I put a 32" LCD in and ran HDMI from the Sat and Blue ray player to the compartment behind the entry door. I removed the bottom shelf and mounth the TV on at piano hinge to the top shelf so the TV lifts up and we can still use the storage.

I drilled a hole from the under storage area to the space below and along side the main TV and then ran the cable over to the outside TV

Nice install! Do you have a picture of the piano hinge attached to the tv & top shelf?

I had the factory put one on for me

I have the same BH and the factory put an entertainment system in where the TV is shown above. Then the TV has a hanging mount on the slide. The TV fits under the rear bed and when we use it, we take it out, hang it and plug it in. The sound is outrageous and the TV is up high where everyone can see it.

Can you post a picture of the bracket attached to the slide?

Thanks,

Sure no problem. I can see it from my window, but it's too dark now. It's basically just a steel plate that jettisons out at the top. Nothing special.

This is the pic. You can see the hanger in the top corner and the entertainment system underneath.
