New tv mount

I am thinking about getting a 19" RCA with the following wall mount. Question is how do I secure the tv to the wall during travel?

Thanks

I have a 2010 297bhs. With a little opening in the cabinet above dinette to house the tv. Planning to mount it on the side of the cabinet to swing out and tilt down

I have the same mount on mine in the bunkhouse, lower bunk area. I put 2 screw in eye-bolts in the backboard behind the monitor and use a couple of bungee cords that wrap around the front of the Tv to keep it from moving. We have 7000 miles with it mounted like this and no issues.

Mustang65 covered it. You could also measure out fabric strapping and screw one end of the strap to the wall either side then attach one of those strap tighteners (like on a bicycle helmet) to the other side of the wall and use that to secure the TV. Go with the least ugly option but I'm sure there's a thousand different solutions.

Bought the mount. Will put it in when it and the TV come in. My wife is starting to make fun of me as it seems like I have an excuse to visit the camper in storage on a weekly basis

I use this one. Releases off wall instantly.. Comes with two bases so you can move tv around. I have one outside and one in bedroom. When towing we simply lay it face down on the bed.

I think Tex has the best overall solution, simple yet effective. I wonder sometimes why we tend to over think those things that just really don't need to be over thought. I suppose if the tv can be removed from the mount easy enough, it's safer and more effective to simply lay it face down on a soft surface, it can't fall if it's not mounted!!

My TV in bedroom will not pick up signals. Is this wall plug wired like the front TV is?

X2 with Texashigh. I installed the removable TV mount in our bedroom but I slide the TV off and put on the bed when traveling. The mount is sturdy enough to hang on but I still don't want it bouncing around as I head down the road. I mounted it with lags into the wall studs.
