I was hoping to use a full motion mount so that I could pull the TV out and turn it so that we would have better viewing from the sofa. We bought a mount from target but it uses big bolts. Plus if I use small screws with it I'm afraid the weight when we pull it out will be too much. That was a great deal on that mount from Camping World. Did you pick it up in the store or have it shipped? You guys have been such a great help! So glad to have found this forum.

Full motion mount

Mine is not a full action mount, but I am not sure that the 1/2" screws will support the Tv that is extended out from the mounting board, as there is more leverage and stress on the mounting bracket. As mentioned in an earlier post, check the thickness of your mounting board... a 5/8" screw would have been to long on mine as the board is only 7/16 thick and the bedroom mirror is flush against the mounting board. Don't need to break a mirror in the trailer....

That is true. We will definitely measure it before buying the screws. I do like the idea of using the locking washers. Hopefully Jayco or my dealer can give me more information today. Thanks again!

I was hoping for more movement too, but every extended mount I looked at weighed way too much, or was so thick that we would loose the rotation on the entertainment center.
Walmart had a slim line mount that rotates and swivels for around $25 that I considered, but I really wanted the TV to not protrude from the box too much.
I picked mind up at CW. It was the exact same price in store.

You have to remember that most wood screws are setup to be countersunk, and 1/8-3/16 is in the screw head. With that and the mounting plate thickness, the effective length is 1/8-3/16" shorter.

I sent Jayco an email about it, and they were less than helpful. It was a long winded "contact your dealer".

Have you thought about adding a piece of 1/2" - 3/4" plywood (or a 1 by solid wood board) onto the existing plywood mounting board? I would think either liquid nails or gorilla glue secured with a few wood screws would give you the thickness you need for a beefier screw for the mounting bracket.

Slide is in, so this is the bedroom side.

Thanks for the pics! I'm going to pick up the mount from my dealer this week. They said Jayco told them to use 1/2 screws. I will buy some locking washer too just to be safe. Thanks again for all the help!!

I just noticed this thread...we have a 2013 28BHBE that came with the "technology package" including the TV. Here's a pic of the mount, but it doesn't have any part numbers, etc on it.

It has a swivel mount that pulls out from the cabinet (as seen in the image).
