Doug (or anyone really) know the actual recomended location on the 165 jayfeathers where to attatch a TV mount? I believe off to the right side of the cabinet above the sink but wasnt sure if there was a reinforced spot on the wall in that general area. Im looking at a TV/DVD combo on sale at our local Best Buy right now (19")also looking to fab up some sort of swing away/quick disco mount to travel. Ironman...very nice set up btw (didnt mean to hijack your thread, just got the gears turning).

TV mount for my 26BH

If you want a TV mount then go to monoprice.com. Great prices there and great items. I've hung 5 tvs with mounts from there so far.

Exjay.
I thought ZI read a thread where they hung it off the side of the cabinets next to where the antennae connection is.
That's what I am thinking, but until I get my hands into in April, that's all I have.

As soon as I get it installed, I'll post pics.

I am thinking there is at least a frame member at the top of the cabinet.
If need be, I'll add another frame member as needed.

Best regards,
Doug

I don't know anything about the 165, but I contacted Jayco about my 26BH and they emailed me some construction diagrams of the wall that I used to locate the studs to which I attached the mount.

It's cool about the hijacking, but I fear the FAA may get wind of it or homeland security and then you'll be in trouble.

I got this monoprice mount for $10:

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

The mounting screws measure 2".. Wondering if the studs are going to be thick enough or if the screws will punch out the other side of the wall (bunk area). I don't have my 26BH yet so I'm just guessing.. Does anyone know how thick the walls are?

Thanks,
Dan

Seems like a lot of the framing I am seeing on here is 1" x 2", so actual thickness would be 3/4" + the wall paneling.
I would probably use a 1" screw max adding the thickness of the mount plate.
That should hold your TV I would think. Maybe a #8 x 1"

Best regards,
Doug

I am assuming everyone either used a stud finder or emailed Jayco for a diagram.
service@jayco.com

I intend to mount mine on the side of my cabinets, so I'll be able to see what framing is available and what I might need to add.

I would also use a larger screw than a #8 as I previously posted. Probably biggest diameter mount will allow. Was late when I posted #8 screw lol

Best regards,
Doug
