2014 Jayco x23f TV Power Question

So I installed a 22" Samsung LED LCD TV hanging from the upper cabinet versus standing on the shelf, which looks sweet. The adjustable swivel mount swings 360 degrees and has a tilt feature built in. When traveling, it has a screw bolt that keeps it from moving.

However, when I installed it everything was working until last night. At the time I was plugged into 50 amp power. When I got it home and plugged camper into my garage plug the TV would turn on...then shut off quick. I took TV down and plugged into a house outlet to make sure it wasn't the TV...and it powered on immediately. I gave up last night and went back out to camper this morning. TV fired right up. Didn't have a long time to let it run to see if power was cut but wondering if anyone knows why this could be? I did notice last night my inverter fan was running loud. Maybe there was too much of a load with the fridge/freezer turned on and it was trying cool from being warm?

Also, does anyone know what the DC plug is used for that shares the coaxial output? It has a sticker that says DC for TV power only.

Some tv's come with the option to plug it in to DC outlet instead of a standard outlet. Can you post a picture of the TV placement, we have the same camper, sounds like a great idea.

Other than that, I cannot answer your power question.

Sorry, can't help you but I would really appreciate a picture of what you did. The type of bracket would also be appreciated. This is the trailer we are considering upgrading to in the near future and the only thing I really don't like is how they placed the TV.

If you don't mind I would appreciate any other feedback you have on your experience with this trailer.

12v television. I think it is a holdover from days of old!

I will take pictures and post later.

I will also give you my opinion on the trailer later as I have yet to officially camp in it.

We have a 2012 X23F, not too much has changed. We love it, after looking at different ones, we chose this one. We like that our kids each have a bed and can bring a friend if they want. Plenty of room for us. Counter space, not too much of it, but I like too cook and got creative. I got a cover for the stove and put a large cutting board over the sink, problem solved. Storing clothes for four people can be tricky when camping for a week. It's been easy to set up and take down and we've had no problems with it, other than minor things. Screws loosening, propane valve replaced, and replaced a bypass valve.

This is our first camper and we spent a lot of time researching and looking at various campers. We love the models with 4 bunk beds but that meant more length and weight. This gave us everything we were looking for in a larger camper.

krattie, thank you for the nice review of the X23F. We have twin boys who will soon want their own bed and this trailer seems perfect. We also like the open floorplan that the dinette slide offers. I agree with the counter space and like your solutions. In June we are going for a week in our popup so storing clothes and food will be a challenge for us. We have plastic stackable totes that did well last weekend.

On our first camping trip with it right now. I also upgraded from the 1206 and this thing is ridiculous compared to that. Having the bathroom is 100% worth it alone.

I'm still waiting to upload a picture of my tv mount solution. I also figured out why tv wasn't working...bad power supply on the TV. Returned for a new one and it works perfectly.

Here is the view of the 22" Samsung LED LCD from the kitchen/Dinette area:


The mount fully rotates 360 degrees and this is the view from the front bed on the x23f:


Here is the close-up up the mount hanging from the upper cabinet storage. I used a piece of wood to reinforce the mount and actually not sure it is needed. Used long enough bolts with washers/nuts to secure. When traveling you can use the screw to securely hold tv while front bunk and slide are brought in.


Here is the box of the mount that I purchased.


I can either play the sound through the TV or trailer speakers (inside/out). If you want to use trailer speakers take the cord supplied with trailer (red/white to single) and plug into aux in port on back of TV.

crudad, Nice work and thank you for the pictures. It helps a lot. How did you run the power wire and speaker wires up to the mount?
