Wheel lugnut covers/bedroom tv questions for 2013 Whitehawk 27 DSRL

1.We're looking to mount a small tv/dvd combo on the bedroom wall and are wondering if any of you have done this, what size/brand tv and mounting bracket did you use?

2. Our trailer has the aluminum wheels on it. At the beginning of this last camping season. I wanted to check the torque on the lug nuts. When I put the wrench on the lug nuts, I discovered that they turned freely in either direction! They didn't come off & they couldn't be tightened. The owner of the lot where we store our trailer took a look & noticed there appeared to be a black rubber ring or gasket at the base of the lug. He said they're actually covers, but we weren't able to pull them off with pliers or pry them with a screwdriver, as I didn't want to gouge the wheels. I had the trailer in for some warranty work this past fall & the tech at the dealership said they're the actual lug nuts. I got the trailer back to the lot to store it for the winter & decided to check one more time. I put a lug wrench on the lugs & every one of them turned freely! Does anyone know how to pop the lug covers off to actually get to the lug nuts? Is there a special tool required to remove them? One thing I did learn is that the wheels & lug covers are made of very soft aluminum & they can be easily scratched, nicked or gouged, so be careful when using any tools near the wheels. Thanks for any help you can offer!

Regarding the TV portion of you post, 1st you will need to see if your wall will hold a mounted tv. You may need to reinforce it some how. If it will, you will need to run a cable from your entertainment center to the wall where you want to mount your tv. Not sure if you can run a coax cable through your ceiling, probably not. Anyone know? Based on the floor plan that I looked at on-line, probably the easiest way would be to run the coax cable down through the floor under your media center and up through the floor by the wall you want to mount the TV. We have a 32" RCA in the media center that turns 180 degrees for the bedroom and a 21" Sony in the bunk area. I would recommend the 32" for your bedroom. Wal-mart has many different wall mounts, some that mount flush against the wall and others that are on arms that tilt and swing out from the wall.
Good Luck!!

most smaller TVs have the standard 4 bolt mount on the mack. I believe WM or Best Buy among others carry several types of mounts that will work. Some just hold it flat to the wall others swivel out and are removable.
