I don't have the trailer in my possession until Saturday morning and wanted to get the biggest possible tv that would fit as I will be living in the trailer for a few months at a time.
Thanks for the reply sir

I put a 40 vizio in ours, even used the black plastic mount and there is enough room to lift it off to move it to the outside. I mounted it so the bottom sits on the mantle/shelf and stuck a couple of rubber feet(washers) under it to keep it from moving.

For the bed room I used a cantilever type mount in the marked spot and permanently mounted a 32 vizio so i can unlock it from the wall and swing it out.

we replaced our original 24" with a 32" and are very pleased with the larger size, it seems to be the perfect size for our Micro Lite 25KS

I've been working on my low voltage upgrade.The breakers that were hideing behind the little gr 24 batt that came with the unit are now up front on the sidewall along with a batt disconnect switch.I built a rack for the 2 gr 29 batts and today I fabbed up all the cables with #4 instead of #6 cable.All the end connecters are staked,soldered,cleaned of flux with lacquer thinner and finally covered with adhesive shrink tube.Actually,all the elect connecters are done this way.Tomorrow I'm going to start connecting and testing circuts.There is also a bank of taps for the batteries that allow a desulfation charger after the disconect is opened And a digital capacity meter for the batts.The entire inside of the batt enclosure was caulked with Lexol and sprayed with 2 coats of bedliner.When this is done I will be attacking the genny compartment right next to it!

Paid a locksmith $75 to come pick the deadbolt lock of the trailer so we could get back in. Key had snapped off.

Installing removable vinyl window tint to the windows, installed two RGB LED light strips (one on each side) on the frame facing outward and ran all the wires up front to where the battery sits. Made a waterproof cylinder to house LED controller out of 2" PVC threaded caps and pipe and mounted right next to the battery. Installed backup camera below center marker light on the rear of the camper.

First real operational check of my water filter mount and hose. I made the small hose that goes from the filter to the city water inlet by cutting 4' off a 25' hose and adding ends to both. The filter is held in place by a bolt that drops into a hole. I have to remember to remove empty and store the filter before pulling out.

Nice Idea If I didn't have to weld a mound to my Roo I would have added one of those boxes but bumper will not hold the weight
