I had Newmar set my DSDP up for a mid-ship TV. I also had them run component cables to from the front cabinet to the back, along w/audio cables and an over the air antennae feed. (I should have had them run an HDMI cable too.)

I found out that I could quickly disconnect the TV and put it up in the house. We are not full timers, in fact, we only use the coach around 60 days a year. So this ends up being a good use of a $2,000 TV.

I bought a 32" SONY XBR LCD TV. I didn't have Newmar install it as it was very simple and I wanted a specific TV. Also, once I started looking into brackets there is actually a standard for hole placement on the TVs and bracket set-up. It is very simple.

I purchased a low depth bracket and mounted it in the coach in less than 20 minutes. There are all kinds of them at J&R.

Essentially there is a hangar that screws into the back of the TV (holes already there per standard) and a plate that mounts to the wall which the TV hangs on. There are two clips that lock in at the bottom.

The toughest part is getting the plate in the right spot as the TV opening was very tight.

Next, you just attach the cables, slide the TV on sideways, set the two locking clips by reaching behind and you are done.

To disconnect, reach behind, unlock the clips, slide TV off, disconnect cables and take the TV, which is only 30 lbs into the master bedroom where I have the identical mounting bracket on the wall. The bracket is low depth but, also tilts.

Anyway, as I looked into how simple it was, I thought I'd pass this along. I've moved it twice now and had no problems.

If anyone wants models of the TV or Bracket let me know.

We installed two TVs like you have one in the rear living area and one in the bedroom. We added rubber gromlets(same as the ones used for the outside entertainment center TV) to eliminate movement when traveling. The one in the living area can be moved outside to provide two 26" when we are at the races.

Yes, please! Also, my wife has a hankering for exactly that arrangement in our next coach. Looking at the 4304 floorplan, it's not obvious where the TV would go. Where'd you place it, and can you post a picture or two?

What do you use as a stand for outside? Is it a tripod?

Sony KDLV32XBR2 32" BRAVIA XBR LCD HDTV $2,000 (might be cheaper now)

Sanus VM200 Silver Flat-panel TV Wall Mount with Tilt $89.99

I recommend J&R if you are going to order online. Very professional, returns are easy and the reps genrally know what they are talking about.

You can find Sony's cheaper but, it will always be a scam, i.e. last year's model, if you don't buy the warranty then it doesn't ship etc.

When placed outside we hang it on our entertainment door above the existing TV(26" not sure the door would support a 32").
