2nd TV in bedroom question

Has anyone successfully mounted a 2nd TV in the bedroom where the sticker marks the location for it on the wall?

How did you do it? Is there a recommended bracket for it?

Thank you!

Sure, just need a bracket that is either RV specific if you want a tilting unit as the RV units tend to have a lock for traveling. You can buy a much cheaper fixed unit on amazon. Just need to use one that falls within the weight limits of the TV you want to use. I don't think I paid more than 20$ for mine.

Can you show me a specific bracket so I can get an idea of what they look like?

Thanks!

I used this one and with the swivel tight, it wont move while traveling. I have a 19 inch TV in the bedroom.

Ok awesome thanks.

And does it screw straight in to some kind of stud or something behind that red/white sticker on the wall?

Is there something right behind that sticker?

Thanks!

Send Jayco your Vin and they will give you a wall schmatic to show where the wood backing is behind the interior wall. May as well ask for all other schematics, including 12v and 120v schematics too.

I used my knuckles to knock and find the stud and it was NOT directly behind the sticker. I used wood screws and washers to avoid going through the other side of the wall. Also I used the mount from Amazon listed above. I put the TV away under the bed when travelling and take it out once setup and stabilized. Suggest getting the schematics as well but take your time and locate the stud and you will be ok. Measure the wall thickness and use washers to regulate screw depth.

I definitely WOULD NOT go by the sticker's location, I believe it is just stuck on there in the general vicinity. I went by the build sheet specs (as someone else suggested) and used a tape measure and stud finder to mount my MORryde mount with the 6 lag bolts that came in the kit. I predrilled a smaller pilot hole before using a ratchet to drive the lag bolts. It's supporting a 24" TV. I also ran an HDMI cable through the ceiling back to my entertainment center and connected it to a bi-directional HDMI switch so the audio would go through the audio return channel and play over the factory radio.

Our TV stud is not under the sticker. Called Jayco, they emailed me the plans for my trailer (or at least my model), plus when asked, their approved screw size for TV mounts. Knocking to locate a stud works pretty good, but for piece of mind, use an electronic stud finder if you have one.

Mine was under the sticker. Mounted a 32" TV with swivel tilt mount. Also mounted a sound bar under bedroom window.

You don't need a big mount with a small TV. They weight about 8 lbs and can be hung from an old fashion picture hook nailed into the wall. I did this for years with 22 in TV. Screwed a couple of nylon clamps into TV and hung it with a loop of nylon string. Took it down to travel and laid it on the bed. You will need a right angle power cord and video input connector.
If you want to use a mount be sure you get one that matches the hole pattern on the back of your TV. They come in all different sizes depending on manufacturer and model. That is the VESA pattern number in the specs. Something else I learned was that all the holes on TV now days are metric sizes. If you get a mount they come with a variety of screw sizes. If not just take TV to hardware store with a good screw selection and find what you need. I got mine at ACE hardware

If you buy a mount that swivels make sure it locks in place for travel or you will have to remove the TV when in motion.

My husband did a flat mount and the stud was behind the sicker. The bedroom space is small, we did not care if the TV was moveable.

Agree. Don't trust that sticker on the wall. I've already seen the results of how hurried the builders are when building these trailers. The person who puts that sticker on the wall may be in a hurry, and will only put it in the general vicinity of where the wall backer is.

You need the wall plans from Jayco, and/or a stud finder.
