TV tie-down?

I'm refurbishing a 2005 Georgetown SE and, well, they don't build cube tv's anymore to fit the hole in the Georgetown. I have put in 2x6's and mounted an articulated wall mount with a 32 inch tv in it's place. Problem is--how do you tie the tv down? It scares the crap out of me when it swings out while I'm driving and I've yet to find a bungee that will fit and stay (that was my solution in our TT).



What creative solutions have you found? I'm sure I'm not the only one who's run into this problem!

This is the factory TV mount on ours. It fully articulates and has some rubber bumper stops when it's against the wall and has a rubber U-shaped part that grabs a vertical bar to hold it in place while driving. It's never popped loose. Yet.

Unfortunately there is no visible manufacturer placard on it. I'd query your dealer and ask them to look up the part and see what it costs from FR. This holds a 41" diagonal-measurement TV.

One of these flat bungees works great.

I purchased a swinging TV mount for our 34RL Cedar Creek to improve the viewing when sitting in the chairs. I purchased a MORryde Swing arm, part number TV1-006H plus a 400mm mounting plate part number 24-0113 TV1-008 from TVforMYRV an on line supplier. The Swing arm has a locking mechanism that retains the TV in place when traveling.

I have installed this in 2015 and I have never had any issues with the swing arm holding the TV in place.

I just checked on line an Amazon has the one I purchased plus the mounting adapter.
