I am installing a new LED panel as well. A couple of things I considered was the bouncing of the RV while traveling and having the ability to lock down the TV. I found a good mount from Moview that has locking capabilities and is recommended for boats and RVs. I work in engineering with metals so the other thing to look at is the weight. Make sure the mount you purchase is rated for at least 1.5 times greater than the weight of the tv panel. Most people forget that those flat panel wall mounts are mostly design for homes where there isn't other loading forces upon them like in a RV. Hope this helps.

Weight Rating

Same thought here. I'm replacing the single arm mount with a double that's rated for up to 165 pounds.

I'm still going to use straps to keep it from extending while we travel though.

I had to re engineer my structure because I didn't like the first mount. The one I got was from Monoprice and it is a flat mount, no swivel, no tilt. I know the price is cheap but it is a quality product. For only $4.78 each when QTY 50+ purchased - Adjustable Tilting Wall Mount Bracket for LCD LED Plasma (Max 30Lbs, 10~26inch) | LCD Plasma Brackets - Tilting Type.
It also has a screw that "locks" it down. I also placed a 2"x2" piece of wood the full length of the tv behind it to wedge it in there. It's hidden by the tv and the facia of the original tv. I'm happy with the outcome, and I'm glad I was ablt to do it without straps. ( Not bashing on those that use them, I just didn't want to) Thanks for everyones help and hopefully this will give someone else an idea to get theirs done too.

Smile Dual Swingarm mount

This is what the new dual arm mount looks like installed. I had to cut quite a bit of the width of the mounting plate off to get it to fit within the enclosure. It's still pretty solid. It is a much better mount than the one I had before. I got it off eBay for $50 with free shipping.

The last picture is how much clearance there is between the strap and the screen. No worries about scratching the screen as long as the buckle is positioned as shown.

LED TV install - Fleetwood Pace Arrow Vision 36B

Nice job and photos are so helpful.
We have a 2000 Vision - and would like to replace the front CRT TV that's between the driver and passenger seat area, and put it in the middle overhead bin area. Anyone else do this already in a Pace Arrow Vision? Photos, lessons learned, how did you get this accomplished, etc.? We have oak and beige vinyl. What size flat screen works best? All our electrical hookups for TV, VCR, DVD, switch box, antenna, etc., are currently in this center overhead storage area. What happens to them?

How did you modify the space where old TV was removed? We'd like to create more storage (with some type of door to keep the stuff out of sight), but want it to look professional and match the rest of the dash area, etc.

Thanks,

Jim and Susan
