We would like to install a 32 in tv above the entertainment center
Should we use a wide or a narrow tv mount on the wall
Anyone knows if there is a special studs in that area for a tv mount

Thanks

Alain

Great question! We just brought home a 2018 Wildwood and were told by the dealer that there is one stud running down the middle of the wall. Iíll be following your post to see what others say.

Home Depot stud finder. Look for staples holding paneling to the studs.

I know you believe that you understand what you think I said but I'm sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant

That area should be backed by plywood for the mount. You shouldn't need to locate studs. Obviously I have no idea how your particular RV is built but my entertainment center and the wall in the bedroom are both backed with plywood for TV mounts. You should be able to tell just by pushing or banging on that area, if it's solid then it's likely backed by plywood. Just use short fully threaded lag screws. I'm sure others will chime in if I'm giving out bad advice.
