Getting rid of big TV in back

Hey all,

I have an 07 Winnie Sightseer and I'm considering getting rid of the very heavy TV that came with it in the back bedroom, making that alcove into a bookshelf, and mounting a flt LCD on the wall. Does anyone know if that back wall (clear of the rear slide of course, can handle a 23 in wall mounted TV?

Cheers

JMerenda.......The secret to mounting anything to the coach walls is spreading the weight. Often, the best way is to buy your bracket and bolt it to a large piece of heavy sheet metal or thin aluminum plate. Then use two sided tape and multiple screws to secure the plate to the wall. Obviously, the bracketing needs to be smaller than the TV so you don't see it. If you can find a stud (probably aluminum frame) even better.

Thanks Don,

Do you cut a hole in the wall to slide that plate in?
