More questions on the 17z.

On my 2014 17z I noticed under the grill mount there is a valve to run a propane line to the grill. I will be using my Coleman Roadtrip girll. I have found the propane hose to attach to the end of the Coleman but what about the other end to attach to the valve coming off of the camper? Any idea what hose I need?


Also, what size TV will fit above the fridge in that space? I had a 32" laying around but that was too big. Will a 26" fit?

I'm not sure on the propane line hose connection. You MIGHT run into trouble, as the camper line is "low pressure" or something like that?

Anyway, I just mounted a 22" TV above the fridge, and it worked out pretty well. I'm not too sure you can fit anything larger than that.

That looks good! Thank you for the picture. How did you mount it? Also, what is the two small coax cables going from top to bottom on the left? I assumed you just needed to hook the line up outside and run a cable to the tv from the output on the right side beside the plug.

There was a post on here awhile back, of everything needed to mount the TV.
I bought this stuff:
TV/DVD 22" combo from Amazon here


Wall mount here

Audio Cables here


Note my 17z is a 2012, so the Audio hookup might be slightly different then your 2014.

HERE is the link to the old thread showing how to mount the TV in the 17z. I found it rather valuable.

Here's an alternative mounting method. When I had my Kiwi 17A it had a folding TV shelf. I needed a mount that was removable and the wall wasn't strong enough for one. I tried the same mount on my X20E and it works great. And I never have to remove it.

This mount is from Monoprice. Reasonably priced and very well made. fully adjustable, and can turn the TV to almost any possible viewing angle.

We have a 24" set on its factory stand and it fits in just fine. I don't worry about the mount because we bring the set into the house for our sons room so he can watch when he comes home from college. And we only turn the set on when it's raining hard enough not to be outside. We have a portable DVD player so we can watch movies. The little 2 connector plate is for when you hook up outside cable input at a fancy park with cable on site. 95% of our camping in is state parks so we don't worry about it. The plate next to it is the hookup from the roof antenna. Have fun and enjoy yourself.
