Question TV Wall Mount

I want to mount a small TV over the cabinet in the bedroom of my 26RLS.

The wall is marked out for 4 screws for placement of a mount. The small mount I bought has only a single mount with 2 holes. (TV is only a 20")

Would this be enough to hold the TV and what size (length) bolts do you use for the wall mount on this interior wall?

I mounted a tv 24'' about 3months ago with 4 holes and used them all , but i would think that as long as your not exceeding weight limit on mount and attached securely to the wall stud then all good. Remember going down the highway bouncy bouncy bouncy. Just my two.

When we had our 26RLS, we used all four screws with the mount we purchased. It was also a locking TV mount. We never had any issues with it and we traveled over 7000 miles. Our TV was a 23".

Does anyone know what is behind the wall panel? Is it simply studs that you try to hit, or do they install a plywood panel behind that sticker?

No thicker than the wall is, I think I will just store the TV and hang it on the mount when we stop and want to use it.

It sits on a stand now and the cabinet top is not large enough for the TV/stand and then the DISH receiver.

I'm pretty sure there is plywood back there but you can use a stud finder to double check. We mounted a ladder on the back of our 5er and Jayco sent us a schematic showing plywood blocks on the back wall. Based on that, I'm just guessing that it's plywood.
