Exterior TV Mounts

I want to mount a small LCD TV on the outside of my Jayflight G2 32BHDS. Any suggestions on how to do this?

Thule makes an exterior mount:

That looks great. Now, any ideas on how to run cable out to it?

That's a hard one. You will need a cable type jack mounted to the exterior. Plus you'll have to make sure it's caulked well and maybe have some type of weather proof cap on it. Drilling thru and fishing the actual cable from the splitter to that jack could be tough, but someone must have done it. Depending on where your 120V exterior outlet is on your camper that might determine where you would want to mount the bracket to hold the television and place the cable type jack.

Here is a link to a waterproof exterior TV cable connector: http://tweetys.com/cabletvplatepolarwhite.aspx

If your trailer came with a factory-installed exterior hanger for a portable barbeque grill, you might find a simple way to hang your TV from that hanger. But I gotta admit, that exterior hanger from Thule looks way cool.

Good luck on finding a path from your existing TV cable connections to a location where you plan to install your new exterior cable connection. Let us know how you do it--and whether you lost your sanity and/or your religion in the process!

Here is another thought: If you don't mind using external cabling from the campground source to your external TV, you can install a signal splitter near the campground source and then attach one cable from the splitter to the trailer's external input jack and the other cable (run under or around the trailer) to the TV you mount on the outside of your trailer. Might not look cool but it would be simple and inexpensive.

You know, as much as I'd like to fish a cable and install an exterior Jack, Texas Sam may be right. Running it outside is simply the easiest way to do this and most likely to keep my marriage intact.
