Bedroom TV

Have just removed the "klunker" TV from the slide-out in the bedroom. Just to take a peek at the wall construction (for installation of LCD) I removed the TV cable box and the 120AC box and found:
1. A thin luan (plywood) under wallpaper (maybe 1/8 thick)
2. Approx. 3/4" hard foam
3. A sheet of aluminum!!
Question is, how big is the piece of aluminum? Entire wall? The inner wall feels plenty strong enough to mount the 35 pound TV but only if the aluminum is a full sheet and not just a "backer" for the electric boxes.

H. Miller......Are you sure the sheet is not the wall stud, or could you see a whole sheet. The coaches were aluminum framed. If your're concerned, buy a sheet of aluminum larger than your TV mounting bracket and screw it to the wall with multiple screws. Screw your new TV bracket to the plate and you should be good.

I agree with Don. Unless you can confirm the size of the aluminum sheet I would do as he suggested. Another option could be to find the aluminum studs and mount the bracket to them at more than one point and center over the bracket over the stud. This may not be convenient so Don's recommendation makes a lot of sense.

Drill the hole, mount the bracket, hang on it and try to move it.. If it feels solid.. It likely is
Home is where I park it!

We have replaced the 13" CRT TV in the bedroom with a 19" LCD TV. Removed the slanted bottom of the cabinet. Mounted an articulating wall mount to the front wall of the cabinet. Also installed a dedicated VCR to the bedroom TV. In the compartment there is a 110v outlet & we also have a 100w 12v inverter in the 12v socket to power the TV when dry camping. IF interested photos are at: http://www.picasaweb.google.com/sight04/Bedroom19LCDTV
If interested in our other projects just leave "Bedroom19LCDTV" off of the web address. http://www.picasaweb.google.com/sight04 .

Good Luck/Health.
