X17Z - TV Wall Mount and LED TV

Hey Gang,

Anybody have a recommendation on a good wall mount and LED TV combo? It looks like I can have a 24" TV just sit on top of the fridge shelf, but I'm thinking a wall mount will allow me to get a 26 or larger TV. Also the mount would allow me to tilt the TV downwards.

What are you guys using? Or are you just sorta tilting the 24" TV down?

I just bought the 22" Samsung LED TV for my x23b, should receive it Friday. I'm looking at either the Rocketfish mount or the Sanus mount for small TVs. Both have extendable arms that can go our, twist, turn, angle, etc. However, I don't plan to mount it where the dealer/manufacturers do (see pic with TV on it...this is not my unit...it's a stock photo)...as that is spot is right by the cooking surface, and my DW doesn't think it should go there (I think she's right). So I'm going to mount it on the other side of the door, above the window (see pic), with a mount that will reach out and angle it down. This way...the kids can even watch it on the front tent-bunk. What I don't know....is how to mount it to the wall...I'm very nervous about that. Are there studs?

I plan to mount it over that small window on the right...by running the cables over the door.

When we bring a TV (which is not that often), we have a 22" LED. We don't have it mounted -- instead we just put it above the fridge for storage, but place it on the table by the window for viewing. We sit on the couch. There are only 2 of us, though, so that makes it a bit easier to do that. If you have 4 people, your results might differ. :-)

Here are some links to the TV, mount, and cable I used to hook the TV audio up to the Jensen stereo.

I used a 3M command hook attached to the back wall with a C clip on the TV mount to keep the TV from swinging around while towing. The mount is attached to the cabinet corner with three longs screws that need to be pre-drilled to around 3/4" of the size of the fastener. I also drilled a 1/2" hole behind the mount to run the power and audio wires for the TV. I've been on four trips with this set up now and haven't had any issues. Hope this helps someone.

Amazon has tons of wall mounts, and at some really good prices!

The audio wires that you purchased- were they to run the audio from the television through the trailer speakers?

Yes, sounds much better and louder via the trailer stereo. Just remeber to turn the outside speakers off when using the TV unless you want the CG to listen to what your watching also, ask me how I know. This audio cable only works if your stereo supports an auxiliary input, my 13' X17Z has the stock Jensen stereo.

We didn't mount ours since the mount is on top of the wardrobe instead of side wall. So, when we use the TV, and that isn't very often, we just put it on the table.
