Hi You all;
I want to put a 27 inch TV in my 5th wheel. Need a way to tie it down safely. I have tried using the little straps that CW sells and they don't work. Need something more secure. Any suggestions. Thanks in advance. Old Fox

My TV is mounted on a sliding shelf. There are ridges on the bottom sides of our TV. A metal clamp is screwed into the shelf and extends over the ridges. These clamps are screwed down tightly. The sliding shelf is stored in the in position and clamped into the stowed position when we are on the road.

Those straps work just fine as long as you actually apply them with screws and not just the doubleside sticky tape that is on them. You will have to pull the back cover off the TV and install one of the hold downs to the cabinet. Make sure you pull the cabinet first so you don't run screws into any electronics or the picture tube. You may also need to install a couple of 3-4" screws thru the front of the TV into the shelf. Remember you are setint this up a permanet install that you don't want to come out while driving down the road so don't be cheap and apply the bandaid typ of install because you may find the TV on the floor of your 5VR when you get where you are going.

Those tiny straps don't seem to do much except to maybe hold the TV from moving too much.

I screwed a bracket to the back of the TV cabinet and then secured the TV to the bracket using some double-sided adhesive at the TV and a strap to the bracket. It helped some.

To give me a good degree of peace of mind, I run a strap all the way around the TV from front to back and under the "tray" that the TV sits in when I travel. I also wedge a piece of wood under tray between it and the cabinet so the tray can't rattle or move when I travel.
