Flat screen install

93 Jayco 5th wheel. I got tired of the tube TV and the converter boxes. Yea I got the tube TVs free and I am kinda tight but Ive had enough. Trying to hook the dvd player up for the kids. Then trying to hook up the antenna later. then you gotta find the right source and channel. I get frustrated and have to have the wife do it. She came home the other day to find the TV in the driveway and I'm sitting inside in silence. She said (mod edit) happened here. I said we are getting new TVs.

The cabinet top is solid oak. I didn't really want to put holes in it but This was the only way. The plywood I attached the wall mount to is 3/4 inch plywood. I used 1 1/2 torx drive screws. Ive used these same screws on other projects in the camper and never had one come loose. The bolts that hold the wall mount its self to the plywood are 1/4 inch grade 5 with washers and lock washers. The only place there is particle board is in the bedroom. I mounted a smaller 22 inch tv in there.
However I should not have gone so cheap on the mount its self. It likes to wobble. Made for home use I guess. I will have to secure the TV with a bungee or take it off going down the road. The smaller one in the bedroom don't have that problem.

Good Job, as long as it works!!! now that you have it mounted and usable, you could always come up with a solid oak version of your L brackets that would make it sturdier

My TV came with a base that snaps on. I drilled a couple of holes through it and bolted it in place. Didn't need any brackets.

The L brakes are very sturdy. If I jerked on it the whole cabnet wuld come out. Oak would look better though.

The stand that came with the tv was a joke. I don't know if I would even trust it in my house.
