I have a 1997 Mountain-aire with a analog TV mounted above the dashboard. I plan to have a carpenter reformat the above-dash wood framework to allow mounting a flat screen TV instead. Before I hire someone I need to be able to tell this person how the TV will be mounted. I want the TV top edge to reach the ceiling in order to keep the TV bottom edge as high as possible because this is a front entrance RV with poor entry clearance. The ceiling is not rigid enough for a ceiling mount so my only choice is a wall mount.
All solid wall mounts are designed in two pieces. The first piece bolts to the back of the TV and the second piece bolts to a flat surface - which in my case would be part of the revised above-dash framework. My problem is that in all such mounts, clips protuding from the first piece have to to be dropped into slots on the second piece to secure the TV. But if my TV has to end up touching the ceiling, how can it be dropped down into place?
If anyone has done a flat screen install in a motorhome or has knowlege on how it should be done, I would appreciate a reply to this post or an email to [email protected]
