Whenever I think that I'm under control, something happens to remind me what a delusion I am living.

Found one of the originals after we got back.
I love doing field repairs, don't you?
That sounds like a good emergency repair for your parts. I used a large pair of Channelocks as an anvil for beating the EMT into submission.
I planned to pack a flip down shelf to adapt as a TV shelf in my 23b. It wasn't on any of my many lists so of course I forgot it. I used some parts from my van stock to rig up a hanger for our 22" wide TV.
The nylon cord goes thru some loops made from picture hanging wire. I always have some of that on hand. To make the loop secure I placed an overhand knot in the wire before I finished with a twist. A simple twist without the knot can sometimes unwind.
I did need to add an extra string down from the door frame drywall screw to keep the TV from sliding off level.
It's working well enough that I plan to make it permanent. It even provides a bit of down facing angle to make better viewing.
My vision for the permanent install is use light cable with Nicropress loops. I'll use some hooks on the back of the TV for hanging, or possibly some flat sheetmetal formed into a hooked plate.
Obviously we won't travel with the TV hung, but we wouldn't do that with a shelf either.
