Mounting TV bracket?

Ok need suggestions on how and what to use to mount to the wall for a flat screen tv? We have that sticker that says "mount tv here". Any suggestions? The wall seems so thin I would want a bracket that allows me to remove the tv during towing. I'd be afraid a good bump would tear the wall open. ha ha

Good question. I'm looking to finally mount a television in the front bedroom where it says mount TV here. I will say you should not have to remove during trips as our living room area television has been fine. It was factory installed. I think it just needs to be done right and it can stay during transit...

You may want to contact jayco, with your VIN and ask them for a schematic of that wall.

The wall is reinforced at the "mount TV here" and I believe there is a screen size limit.

There is a large plywood piece behind that sticker. I suggest you get a Mor Ryde TV mount. They are designed for RV's, Amazon is a good source. Lag screws are included. as for size of TV check with Jayco or look online for model with a factory TV.

Our TT was pre-flat screen era so there was no mount here sticker. If you make a backing block and through bolt the bracket to the wall, it is not going to come down. We bought our Flat Screen and bracket at Best Buy and we have never had any problems with it. Plenty of other things (like doors and cabinet frames) have come apart and had to be glued back together due to rough roads.

With a little ingenuity, the backing block can be dressed up and made functional with close hooks etc. It just depends on what is on the other side of the wall.

May I also suggest you do some searching on this forum for there are suggestions as to the mounts to purchase along with installation pictures. For us, we have an "entertainment center" that comes with a flat-mounted 32" that you couldn't easily view from the dinette and it was difficult to 'disengage' SO we purchased a articulating RV/locking mount from Amazon.

Thank you all.....I contacted Jayco and got the schematics. I also found a Mor Ryd mount I want to get that holds up to 25#. I didn't realize there is a size limit on the tv for the wall. I figured I could go by what the mount can hold. I wasn't planning on putting anything more than a 32". Probably not even that big.

I am also looking at the Mor/Ryde mount on Amazon (the one with the 25 lb limit). Does anyone know if I need a larger mount than that for the living room if the 32 inch tv I plan on purchasing weighs less than 20 lbs? I see Hattie bought the bigger one...is that a better idea for a 32 inch tv?

YES, we first purchased the less expensive/lighter one and the required adaptor plate [of course, more $$] BUT even with a 32" Jensen 12-volt TV [less than 25#] it sagged after just one trip so we got the more robust mount [no adaptor plate required] and are now very pleased.
