Mounting a TV outside

Have any of you mounted your TV's outside of your campers. If so what did you use?

Do you want to mount it inside the basement then pull it out on an arm. Or just set it on a table outside??

I'm in the process of installing an outside TV now. Here is a link to a video I made during the fit check. It's apart now for paint and I'm waiting for a Amplifier that was backordered, but in a week or so I'll have it done.

The real goal here for me was to not loose storage in the bay I installed the TV in.

We would like to mount in the basement and have a pull out arm.
Where would you even buy an arm like that?

My comment on outdoor TV"s is please do NOT.

You may like being able to watch your whatever outside,, but frankly, Odds are I'm not interested in that program.. nor is your next site neighbor. Nor are we interested in your whooping and hollering every time your team scores.

Check out this thread.

New pics

A couple of different ideas. Pivoting pull-out is mine.

Some people don't care if they bother people around them. They are the same ones that run there generator any time.

The OP is asking for mounting advice for an outside TV not a poll of who agrees with it. When someone starts a poll , I will let you know all the reasons why I'm in favor of it.

No, I have not. I'm not sure that the ones on the inside still work. Bob

(Except our Bounder came with an outside TV, that we didn't want. They wouldn't discount it to remove the TV, so there it sits.)

Ditto. One of our requirements when looking for another coach was that it NOT have an outside TV...we would not use it and like the extra storage space.
