Just recently got to try out my new wall mounted TV install at Ft. Wilderness and it's now ready for some college football.

I had this idea about how to hold the door back and ended up using plastic 6" door holdbacks, they were moldable with some heat applied and I was able to mount strong into door and also paint the locking receivers to match on side of Coach. I've put a bunch of weight on this door while it's been up and nothing budges, the TV is locked to the mount as well when up there. I simply pull it down and put the Tv in a custom enclosure inside the bay for transport that is cushioned. Put the ram back into the bracket and the door functions as oem.

As for the brackets, you don't even notice when doors are closed. Hydraulic baggage door ram is now on a wingnut and tucks inside nicely when it's not needed. Ran cable and 110 to the compartment.

next up is the stereo/mp3 for that particular bay and the DSS receiver install.

(first time posting pics on here, hope they're sized right, if not my apologies)

Front view, didn't mean to have that particular image on the screen:

Very nicely done, Ron! That's what we like to see...innovation! I'm sure you'll enjoy every minute, sitting outside, watching the games!

Just convert your IR remote to RF control with this converter then you can control your coach DVD player from outside.
