Great installation ncooper96! I am going to follow your lead with my 2012 x17z.
Question...Did you drill the 1/2 inch hole just to run the power and coax cables down to the outlets? If so you must have drilled a second hole below the stereo unit it exit the cables to the power/coax inputs.
Also ..I have an aux input on the front of the Jensen stereo...is that the input you used to feed the audio from the TV to the trailer speakers?
Thanks
Harry

This particular TV has an external power supply like a laptop computer. I mounted the power supply behind the stereo and the power cord just runs along the side of the cabinet, there is no second hole. The power cords runs up the wall from the outlet into the 1/2 hole to the power supply, then from the power supply back through the hole to the TV. My Jenson stereo has aux inputs on the back and front of the stereo, I used the cable listed in my initial post to hook up the audio feed to the aux input on the back of the stereo. The coax cable for the antenna also runs up the back side of the cabinet along with the power wire and for the most part they are not noticable. I'll try and take some more pictures later today if I have time.

I was just checking out this mount and really like the set up. I have the same camper and just had one question. Did you find that you needed the mount to be able to tilt? I found they offer a much cheaper one that is the same but doesn't tilt. Thanks for any info.

Yes, it needs to tilt. Makes the TV much easier to view when sitting on the couch or laying bed.

Thanks for the response and the great pictures of the install. Just received my order for the mount and tv today. Can't wait to install it and be ready for the first trip.

Just installed the mount and tv. Real nice set up. I was able to drill a 1" hole next to the stereo to run the av cables and also put the power supply in the stereo cabinet and just have the small power cable running to the tv. Didn't like looking at the power supply. Once again thanks for the great info and pictures of your install made mine a breeze.

Glad it worked out for you. I've gotten lots of great info from this sight and try and return the favor when I can.

This was an a-1 install. Easy and well worth it. Thanks

We did not mount ours in our 23b due to the cooking area proximity. We travel with the dinette in the down position and the television rides there. Takes only seconds to hook up. We only use the tv for morning and evening news with our coffee. Rainy days we watch DVD's
