Wasn't much but did get our front TV changed out to a slim flat screen TV. Hung over original spot and extends out to clear for storage doors access.

Cool! Nice job mechanic


When I got my coach it had a small analog TV mounted on a shelf. One of the first things I did was remove it.



Interesting… your front cabinet doors are a bit wider than mine. I had more room between the doors so I mounted the TV between them. hmm

I installed the TV, sitting on the shelf and attached flush to the wall. It has survived over 40,000 miles in the last 5 years.



I am interested to see if the articulating mounts will hold up to road vibrations, etc. hmm

Thanks! I'm going to put a strap on the mount that will hold it tight when stored. I wanted to keep access to the storage compartments. We have our dvd player in one.

I don't blame you. Liz shopped around a while to find a TV that just fit between our doors. They still open. Your doors are closer together. That mounting looks stout, should be OK. Thumbs Up

Nice. I was a bit worried about putting it there so instead opted to put a folding bracket under the kitchen cabinet. Will snap a picture. The bracket is pretty sturdy although vibration does concern me a bit. Hope to put a small one in our bedroom. Was thinking of a near flush mount. Only problem is our t-stat is in the way. Now I need to figure out how I'm gonna wire it for cable.
