Smile Just got a 2017 Surveyor LE 243RBS


I just bought a new to me 2017 Forest River Surveyor LE 243RBS and I would like to know if anybody here has a schematics of the layout. I would like to add a TV in the master bedroom and I would like to add some shelves/racks in other areas and would like to know where the electrical/water lines are in the unit.

I'm not sure exactly where all the wiring is in the trailer. Chances are good it's going to be low along the wall or near the corners to get up to the ceiling lights. For shelves you will likely be ok.

As far as mounting a TV in the bedroom, it's actually a very easy install to secure the mount to the wall. I added a 24" and drilled a 1" hole for the HDMI and cable to pass through. Using a HDMI splitter off of a blue ray player, we are able to watch movies in the main room or the bedroom.

Here's a link to the install and finding the backer board to attach the TV mount.

I added a TV in the bedroom on our 2018 243RBS. Thread is here:

If the 2016 is like my 2018, there are power and antenna/cable connectors located on the pocket door wall. The key thing for me was finding a 1x4running across the width of the wall at about 5' above the floor. I attached the KeBloc to that board and used some self stick channel to dress the cable and cord.

Alternatively, you could carefully drill through from the hole behind the main room TV. There only a few wires on that wall that you can't find near that hole. Also, you can look into the wall next to the pocket doors.
