Some time ago you were seeking advice on what to carry on a trip to Florida to buy a MH. What happened? What did you carry?
Is the Tradewinds the one that you wanted in Florida.
Thanks

I looked on the West Marine web site and called the Henderson store. They had one of these gadgets so I had him save one. I might also use a velcro strap from the back to stabilise while traveling. Thanks

I got a pair of the Thumb Lock fasteners and they look like just the ticket. I will stop back and pick up another set. I will use 2 to hold the base down to the countertop and use 2 on the bottom of the upper cabinet and upper back of the set.

We removed the swivel chair behind the passenger seat, bolted a TV stand to the floor, bolted a 37" lcd to the stand, added a bluray player.....Now enjoy sitting across from the tv without looking up......sure is more enjoyable......

Ragman here on the forum removed the TV from the center hole and then moved the Door from the right side to the old TV opening. Perfect fit. He then modified the right side opening to one long rectangle. Next step was to box in the opening and mount a flat screen retractable mount in the new box. He ended up with a 32 that stows away while traveling and swings out and tilts for viewing. I am going to do the same for mine it is a good setup.

A piece of plywood resting on the corion and fastened to the upper cabinet would allow you to fasten the back without disturbing the mirrors.

VEGASDAN, check out the LCD TV Installation in January 2010 issue of Family Motor Coaching, page 25. It is a interesting installation suggestion for you that should solve your problem.

I tried using those but found that the glue would fail in cold weather. I then tried the same with the screw holes and used small screws to hold them in place - on the cabinet and tv - this stops the shearing of the foot with the glue.

What I did for the new flatscreen in the bedroom of our rig when the old tube set died was to mount a piece of 3/4 plywood from the countertop to about 1/4 inch below the upper cabinets. I used metal corner brackets to attach the plywood top and bottom (the corian was a good surface to attach to, the upper cabinet took some careful work to find structural wood under the veneer), then put a wall-mount on the plywood. Mounting directly on the wall was a non-starter idea as there is a large window behind there, but DW wanted the larger tv that wouldn't fit where the old one was more than she wanted the window.
