Wildwood X-lite 240BHXL TV Mounting

Looking for some information on the above fireplace TV mounting spot. There is the cursory sticker but not so sure after I pressed on the wall to see if there was a mounting plate, etc. behind the thin wall panel. I have e-mailed Forest River if they could provide me with the specs but no reply.

I cant imaging such a big wall and only hold a 32" TV.

Any info will be very much appreciated.

Welcome to the forum its a great place to get your questions answered. pushing on a wall is not how to find a backing plat use a good stud finder. If you are going to install something bigger and heaver they the Mfg recommends than you may need to install an external backing plate across several studs. JMHO

I have mounted a 50" TV on that wall in my 240BHXL by using a standard wall mount and finding the studs with a stud finder. No issues. I used the sticker as a starting point and moved out from there to find the studs.

Backer board if pretty big. I didn't use a stud finder. Just pressed on the wall and you can find pretty much all the edges
