Adjustable mounting bracket for outside TV

We live in our 2016 Anthem all winter in Arizona and use the outside TV often, especially during the football season. The TV works great but there is no way to adjust it vertically in order to eliminate screen reflections...it adjusts in and out and horizontally but we can't change the angle of the screen to get rid of reflections. Has anybody found a replacement bracket with more adjustment options to replace the factory bracket?

Iíve tried a couple of different mounts, one of which I adapted to lower the TV about 15Ē, with tilt and swivel. It was still too high and thatís the problem. Because of the height no amount of tilting and swiveling will eliminate reflections during daylight hours. The acceptable level of reflection will vary from person to person, but for me the outside TV remains unusable during the day.

Iíve thought about hanging a light weight black cloth from the awning to kill all reflections, but havenít tried that yet.

Morryde make a mount that will drop down. Try:

Drop Down Wall Mount - MORryde Products

It may fit.

I think this one is too deep when closed to fit in the outside enclosure. I’ll measure the next time I go to the coach. It also appears it only swivels and doesn’t tilt. Tilt is the more important of the two motions. Thanks.

Check with Entegra because our Ď17 has a fully articulated mount. It will pull out and swing left and right a little, it will pan quite well, and has a small amount of tilt.

Mount it on the basement frig/freezer then you can have access to a cold one while watching tv with no glare.

With this mod and the awning out we are able to watch the games OK. Nothing will stop sun directly on the screen.
