When we got our new Seneca our grandsons (6 and 8 years old) immediately took a liking to the outside entertainment center, they enjoy watching movies outside way more than cooped up inside. However the original setup had a few issues I planned to improve. First was the TV size, the original 32" TV was somewhat "lost" in the enclosure, so now a 39" Vizio full HD Smart TV fills the spot. Also the original TV was just mounted flat in the space. That would probably be fine if you had chairs 6' tall since the Seneca is a very tall unit! Also since the TV was fixed in place viewing was poor if you were sitting off-center due to the layout of the campsite. Even sitting straight back from the opening the screen was pointed over your heads!
To solve the viewing angle issues I installed a heavy duty full-motion mount that allows the TV to pull out, angle down for better viewing, and swivel up to 45 degrees to either side. To adapt the new mount to the Seneca I removed the original mounting plate (6 screws) and TV. Then I fabricated an adapter made from 1" mild steel tubing TIG welded together. It recesses the new mount 1" into the TV cutout giving the whole setup plenty of room under the compartment door when closed.
Lastly most of our movies are on Blu-Ray so we could not play them outside since the original Sony external player is DVD-only. So I found an Autopro in-dash 12-volt Blu-Ray player on Amazon. It is single DIN size, the same size as the original Sony. But the Autopro does not have any amplifier, so you still need the Sony to provide the sound to the speakers, plus we still wanted to listen to just the radio at times. To fit the Autopro I had to modify the cutout, so I extended the opening and then filled in the center between the new Autopro and the original Sony making two opening where there once was only one.
So far it has exceeded my expectations, the grandsons had to sit in the driveway and test it out! They approve!
