Question They sure can hide an outlet

I wanted to replace our bedroom TV with a larger one.

Removing the TV and mount were a little tedious but what I found next really blew my mind. The power outlet for the tv was hidden behind the mounting panel and only accessible through a 1.5 to 2.0 inch hole.

Cut a little larger access opening. What were they thinking?

A simple case of measure twice and cut once.
They needed the heavy wood to mount the TV bracket, didn't want to relocate the outlet, measured and cut and access, ooops, well nobody can see it anyway.

Now that's pitiful. Looks like I did it.

I think someone was there before you, that looks nothing like my Endeavor, my bracket is mounted directly to the wall that has the outlet, I don't have the fake wall you're showing.

I can't see how the "fake" wall is attached. But will look again.

DennisZ,
There are no visible fasteners holding that fake wall in place. It does not look like an owner installed wall. The ply matches the other woodwork in the coach. I don't have an inspection mirror to poke through the hole and have a look.

tv

Some models came without a lower drawer and wood around the TV. The wood was added in later production. Your pictures are from the factory installation with the wood.
