Can this be done?

Has anyone ever mounted a tv to the back of your 5th wheel outside storage door? It seems pretty thick and sturdy but would want to be sure before attempting to do it. Nothing really heavy, of course maybe 10-15 lbs.

You have two things to consider.
The weight of the TV...sounds like it is not a big problem.

However, shutting the door could be a problem.
All you need is for someone to slam the door. Swinging 10lbs and then stopping is suddenly could rip it from the door.

Buy a second mount for your current TV, use thumb screws to mount Tv to the "plate" so that you can easily move it. Someone on here built a sliding/then tilting contraption that securely kept it in the bay when not in use.

Should work..I have only two concerns

1:Seems solid enough....Things are not always as they seem but you should be able to figure it out if it is not.

2a: When you close the door..if there is something inside the compartment that can smash the display (Screen) Murphy will see to it itdoes

2b: Or when you turn and something loose inside the compartment can fly over...Murphy gets a 2nd chance.
Home is where I park it!
