The attachment shows my opening and the bracket (not attached yet). With the bracket attached the tv would not fit in the opening. I assume it needs to be within the "boxed in area" I was afraid of it moving in and out while driving or it coming down if it wasn't supported within the box.

Thanks for the info!!!

Hello dotkellum, I will try and help you out the best I can with your questions.

I used a flat style fixed mount, it was cheap, but difficult to fasten the TV to. I had to drill holes in the shelf below to tighten the screws that attach the tv to the mount.
I suggest a swing arm style mount for ease of installation, and allows you to access the ports on the TV. However, then you need a way to fasten the TV tight in transport. Either way will work.

On page 3 there should be a pic or two of my TV mount. I didn’t find any difficulty in finding the mounting point, just use #10 screws, around 1” - 1.5” in length. You don’t want to go sending 3” screws through there.

We have traveled down some terrible roads and ours is still there.

I don’t believe there is a heat run in the rear bunk. The grille on the bunk side is the “fridge exhaust pipe”.
It just gives the fridge somewhere to exchange some air, no actual exhaust comes out of there.
Grab an electric heater with a tip over safety, that’s what we use.

I hope this helps!

If there is no support in the centre for that mount, you may need to fasten plywood up first to give you somewhere to screw to. Or grab a different style mount.

I’m sorry to keep posting but I can’t seem to edit my past posts.

I was incorrect about the heat run in the bunk house. If I only looked back through my own thread I would have seen it. Page 4 I show a picture of the heat run. If I remember correctly mine was pinched and had a bunch of hard bends in it. I was able to fix it from the outdoor kitchen under the sink.

I’m sure running a new one wouldn’t be easy!
