26BH Television Mount

I just received 2 TVs to mount in my 26BH from Santa. They are 22" LED/DVD Combos and weigh 7.9lbs each.

I mounted the first one today in the main bedroom area. It worked great because there was a cabinet on the other side of the wall and I measured things out and managed to hit the vertical cabinet support like SmokerBill did in his post in 'TV in Bedroom.' The thing is very sturdy and I am very comfortable with the mount.

I am more concerned about the best way to mount the next one which is over our kitchen table and by our stereo and just above our thermostat. The wall is flimsy where the sticker was and I am just having a hard time wrapping my brain around this one... I have read a number of posts about TV mounts and didnt want to make a backer board...

Any last thoughts by those of you who have done it??

Thanks!

Welcome to the forum, aslodonat! Not sure if it is high enough but there should be support behind the wall where the bunk connects to the wall on the other side. Of course with that thermostat there you would want to know where any wires might be located in that wall before drilling in it. Perhaps you could request a wiring schematic from Jayco. I too am considering a TV mounting location in my 28BHS which also has the bunk behind the wall. You appear to have a solid door separating the bunkroom whereas I only have a curtain, did you install that or was did it come that way?

That was actually just a pic I grabbed off another post... I have the bunks behind that wall you are looking at with a curtain... no door.

I was going to try and contact Jayco tomorrow to see if they could help me with wiring, also the stud separation, and maybe even some guidance on where the mounting should really take place...

I just got a 23" LED for my 26BH. I mounted it on the existing brack that was mounted where your sticker is. Feels secure with the tv on there. Now I just need to figure out power options. I don't want to run extension cords. What are your plans?

Welcome!

If you ask, Jayco will usually send you a blueprint of how the walls were designed.

I mounted a 19" TV/DVD combo (8.8 lbs) on the dining room wall of my 2012 26BH with a Rocketfish low-profile tilting mount kit for 13"-26" TV's.

I mounted it with the bottom edge of the TV flush with the bottom of the cabinets, which put the mounting plate slightly below the sticker on the wall. I used 1" long x 5/16" lag screws to fasten it to the wall and it is very sturdy. I've made a 70 mile round trip with it over some pretty rough roads and it didn't budge.

The dining room wall is re-enforced with plywood behind the sticker. The plywood is considerably larger than the sticker is but I don't know by how much. (It would be nice to know how big it is and the exact location)

there should be a stud behind the mounting sticker. try a stud finder. Our 15in tv worked out fine there.

My first post! For those that have/are mounting a TV in their trailer, are you permanently mounting the TV to the wall or are you using a mount that allows you to remove the TV during transportation?

Yes, Jayco will send you a print of the inside of the walls. After I saw the print I decided not to mount my TV to the wall. There is a shelf and I built a mount that sits on the shelf and TV will mount on that.

Welcome to the forum SDBryan! That`s a good question and I have been wondering that myself, if the TV can be locked in place on the mount (especially if it is an articulating mount) so it will not move during travel and if not, how difficult is it to remove the TV from the mount?
