2015 TV mounting question.

I have a class c thor 2015 model that has a recessed area in the bedroom for a tv. The tv and mount have been removed. Just a I have purchased a tv for this area along with a flush wall mount. The area has several holes in it. My question is can you just screw in the mount and tv or was there any other parts or is your tv just on a mount in this area? Dont want it to fall out going down the road! Would appreciate any information and advice.

I wouldn't use existing holes. No way to easily tell hole condition (stripped, cracked).


When installing a new mount, I ALWAYS cut a piece of 5/8 plywood large enough to hot 2 studs in at least all 4 corners. Or, I use angle brackets to actor to sides of cavity. I predrilll and epoxy the new fasteners into place. Sometimes I will use double ended studs (corkscrew on one end, machine bolt on other) and then use nuts and lock washers. If done right, the plywood is rarely seen.



I have had many broken mounts brought to me. Because I strengthen the mounting surface, I have never had one come back... Not even after RedNecks With Paychecks or Alaskan ventures.

Took you advice

Followed your method and got tv mounted no problems. It feels very secure. Thank you very much for the tip.

You are welcome.


Post a pic of your handiwork, and in a few weeks of use, what would you change?



IE: I just did another mount 2 days ago. Client knew they would be upgrading to a 4k (!) tv around Christmas. So, we incorporated a very high-end HDMI plate, optical connection plate, as well as a second HDMI for use with sound bar (audio only), component video plate. Power was already there. I was able to hit 3 studs so 6 holes top and bottom edge, and have screws vertically spaced at 8". 14 screws hold this up. Wall panel was applied with poster putty over recessed screw heads. Very very clean. Edges / end grain all painted eggshell white. If I had complimenting seam tape, I might have beveled the board edge.



Cut a hole in wall behind mount board, snakes cables over to nearby (and ventilated cabinet) media "hole". Installed a mount that was good up to 600x600mm hole pattern.


The existing 27" doesn't quite hide all cables and mount (36"hx48"w) board, but 4k tv is going to be a 55" or so in size. As of current, you can just see the HDMI leaving its plate and going to tv. Other than that, the rest is completely unnoticeable. I covered the mounting board with a piece of wall panel left over from previous project. Very very clean. No pic though, I know I took one but can't find it. For what its worth, this was on an interior wall in a Itasca something or other. TThere are now 2 TVs in living room area.
