TV wall only 1" thick

Just an FYI. Whilst getting ready to mount a new articulating TV arm in my 5er I discovered that the wall was only 1" thick, not the 2-1/2" that I thought it was. I discoverd this when I ran the 2" long drill bit through to the bathroom side.

I called Jayco to find out where I could mount my tv bracket.

A very nice guy told me that they did not include a reinforced wall point on my SLX195RB to install a TV mount. He suggested I mount it to the kitchen counter as the only place that had enough strength in my model.

My 2017 JayFlight has two TV pre-mounting areas, one above the dinette adjacent to the bathroom wall and one along the driver side exterior wall in the bedroom. I relocated the dinette wall bracket slightly lower to accommodate a new 32" samsung after the original furrion bit the dust. I used the bedroom mount for a gun rack, works perfect!

Problem solved. Thru bolt the mount using 3 or 4 thin bolts and use a thin metal backing plate on the bathroom side. You can cover up the backing plate with a picture of what ever.

Funny you should mention this cuz that's exactly what I did. With one exception; the plate is next to the toilet so...no picture

My buddy had his brand spankin' new Grand Design less than 36 hours before overestimating wall thickness and drilling right through the exterior wall while mounting a TV in the bedroom. The defeated look on his face was priceless. As for myself, well....I haven't laughed that hard in a long time.
