Help with Tv wall mount

I'm wanting to install a 32" flat screen TV in my bedroom. I have a 2017 Jaco Jay Flight. I've been looking at several different ones on Amazon anywhere from $26-$40. What's y'alls input on them and what length screw should I use?

Some Jayco models have reinforced mounting areas for TVs. Others don't and you may want to check with Jayco to see if they have recommended locations.


Re the screws. Most are built with 2 x 2s plus a quarter inch or so of paneling. I would measure somewhere under a cabinet the exact depth of your wall. I wouldn't go much past 1 1/2 inches long. Possibly a fraction more if there much depth to the bracket.


Do some research with the search function on the gold bar above. I believe some have reinforced the wall with a plywood panel to spread the load.

There is a sticker on my wall that says " Mount Tv here" I'm assuming a locking bracket would be the way to go?

Small hammer taping all around the wall there might tell you where some boards are behind the wall... Something as big as you wanting to install I almost thing the best way would be to install a one by four across the whole wall and anchor in place on its ends. You can paint this to match your room décor... This will give a good strong place to screw down some HDTV Wall Hanging Adapters...

Something like this GOOGLE IMAGE suggests...


I also like to use this type of wall screws if you go this route. This spreads out behind the wall and gives you a place to use a screw to hold something, The other kind of wall thing is the wing nut type. When you remove the screw from this type assy it all drops behind the wall haha...

Just keep in mind the RV WALLS are not as thick as the house walls and will not hold much...
