TV Mount X213

I have a 2015 Jayco X213 and I would like mount a 32 inch led TV in it. Question are has anyone mounted one in the predetermined location without the TV shelf? Can I mount to the wall or mount to the the microwave cabinet? Will it hold the weight? There is a sticker stating there is a mounting bracket in the wall.

The dealer is no help, they just want me to bring it in.

Or should I mount on the Pantry next to the fridge? I initially wanted to add extra storage there but I can sacrifice it if need be. Also i will not be using the antenna or the the radio/DVD player that came with the trailer. I can run my own electrical so that is not an issue.

Any insight would be appreciative.

I mounted an articulated arm TV mount to the microwave cabinet but reinforced inside the cabinet with some 3/4 ply. ( Take out the microwave and it is easy to just glue in a piece of wood to screw into.) The microwave cabinet is particle board so didn't trust it to hold screws

Did you leave the microwave out or replaced it when done? What size TV did you use?

On my '16 there is already an articulating mount attached to the outside wall. If you're not in a hurry, I could measure exactly where the screws are drilled when I go pick up the trailer from storage on Thursday. Otherwise you might call Jayco and ask them to give you more details on where exactly the mount panel is and what it's dimensions are so you get the arm attached correctly.

My 2012 had the tv mounted on the shelf with bracket that weighed about 20lb.
I recently changed to an articulating arm into the side of the microwave using some reinforcing to support the mount. This hives more storage space as well as allowing me to actually see the TV. I also changed out the receptacle behind the TV to one wit 2 built in USB ports. Now I can use the shelf space for phone/ iPad charging and other sttuff

One thing to consider when choosing the mounting spot is clearance from the bed. I believe the TV that came with our trailer is the 24 inch model, and the bed slide stops just a couple inches away from it. A 32 inch TV might need to be mounted differently to avoid that.

Microwave went back in afterwards. The reinforcing plywood doesn't interfere
