Mounting a TV in 2016 174BH

Good evening all,

Just took delivery of our 2016 Jayco Jay Flight 175BH Baja.

I wanted to put our 21" TV of course where the outlet is but the guy at my dealership told me not to because there's too many wires and no stud there... I pressed the wall in front of him and it felt very solid between the 12V outlet and the 120V outlet... If I drill into the stud, I shouldn't have any issues, right?

Anyone have any photos of their TV mount installed?

Thanks

Slightly different than mine...

I figured I'll go buy a TV mount any ways and slap in there... Seems to me that Jayco wouldn't put wires back in there knowing that's where the TV would mount. I mean yeah, there are outlets and switches there but I am 99% sure the stud lies right where i want it...

I'll start with a small drill bit for a pilot hole and if I get wood that comes out, I am golden!

First off, this is the mount we bought... I've had great luck with it in the past! Good solid unit and easy to use/mount...

Master Mount Locking Cantilever Mount, Small - McNaughton 94139 - TV Accessories - Camping World

I used a stud finder to find the mounting point... (Not needed as you can lightly press on the wall to find the studs...) My results are below...

Fits a 24" Visio TV nicely


Careful where you mount as the outlet MAY get in the way... Mine rides along the top and actually helps prevent much movement... I got lucky, I originally had the arms facing the other way but would rather not have it covering the awning switch...



At the request of the wife, we added lift shocks to the bed...


Cabela's fishing rod holder to be used as a flashlight holder!


No bathroom storage? No problem! Hang it on the wall!



Tongue jack for the bad back!


Our tow vehicle!

RP53, Anyway you could post a pic of the wall mount area on your 195?
Would like a TV and want to mount it in the same spot but looking for an approximate area where the stud would be.
Thanks in advance and safe travels all

I will add the lift shocks to the bed, too. All great ideas! Thanks for sharing.

How does the jeep pull it? What motor?

Love the setup including the Jeep!

Have a kiddo on the top bunk too?
Looks like some kind of a bed net.

We are still debating the need for the addition of a television.

The Jeep pulls alright... Doesn't pull as good as it did with our Travel Lite idea i17 but it's because it sits a LOT higher so it has more drag... It's 55 mph where it starts to struggle... If I put factory wheels/tires back on, I shouldn't have any issues.... I've got the 3.6l Pentastar with 3.73 gears. If I regear I could leave the 35's on it but that's down the road a bit...




Yep, we have our 3 year old son up on the top bunk and the 9 year old daughter below... She HAD to have the window... Plus, she wont rip down the trim to the bed getting in and out... Didn't seem as sturdy as I'd like it to be...

Also, being in Washington state and having kids, a TV is a must... They'll do board games and then become bored if we can't go outside due to rain... So, they wanted a TV...
