  • TV wall mount for bedroom

    We picked up a second 32” 12v tv (same as what came in the main living space) for the bedroom on the trailer (26n).

    There is a space marked on the wall on where we should mount it, I was just wondering if there is a specific mount that would be best to use?

    Any store that sells televisions, will also sell wall mounts. There are many designs and uses, but all will mount to a newer television. In the wall, behind the mounting area sticker, is a thick piece of wood to screw into with lag bolts.

    When we mounted our television to the bedroom wall, we used a mount that only tilted up & down. We didn't need the mount to extend outward & from side to side.

    This should help:

      Take a look at monoprice.com they have a large selection of wall mounts and are a lot more reasonably priced than the brick and mortar stores. I have used them on many occasions and have never had any problems. Great customer service.

        Found a mount that seems very similar to the TV mount in the entertainment area and picked it up.

        It came with 2" lag bolts; I measured the wall thickness at 3 1/2" to make sure it wasn't going to go through the wall all the way......

        Still, 2" bolts feels really long; I don't want to go too short and have the TV fall off. Just wanted to check that I'm not out of my mind for planning on using the bolts? I'll drill pilot holes to avoid as much damage as possible. Already did the measurements to center it left to right and to ensure that it's level with the floor - the roof is too curved

          hmm 3 1/2 sounds like a lot
          The wall my TV mounts on has a DC switch on it I would pull it and measure how deep I can stick a tape and to the outside of the wall.
          If you are to close you can either grind down the tip of the lag or add washers before you put the lag in.

          I did not install mine.

            I measured from the bathroom door and subtracted (inside the door and outside the door, if that makes sense); I was really surprised at the results (measured 3x because I didn't believe it).

            I may just give NW a call tomorrow and see what they say.

              When we mounted our bedroom bracket, we used 5/16"w x 1" hex-head screws.

              Bracket has held tight over the past 5 years.

                1" seems much more reasonable; I may go that route.

                  Might want to make sure it locks in place so you don't have the TV moving around while driving. Home mounts do not lock (at least ours don't.)

                    I wouldn't think that would be enough being about only 3/4 of an inch would be in good wood but it's hard to argue with how long and miles you have on those.
                    How many lags did you use ?

                      If I remember 4.

                      That wall mount has traveled across the country 6 times, to Alaska twice and up & down Interstate-5 (terrible highway). I checked the bolts last year and all still tight.

                        Hardware store was out of 1” 5-16 bolts, so I went with 1 1-4”. Used 4 of them to mount to the wall, it feels like it but well.

                        Manipulated it a lot before and after putting the TV on the bracket and it seems to hold well, I guess time will tell. It locks in place easily, frankly I don’t know if we will ever use it on the articulating arm, but we have the option I guess. Hooked it up to the OTA antenna and everything worked well.

                        Also hooked up the IOGear wireless HDMI transmitter I picked up off eBay for about $40. Worked great and I couldn’t see any signal loss. Was pretty cool that we could mirror both TVs and the audio/picture stayed in sync.

                        Our remotes use RF vs IR, so I took the opportunity to drill a few holes and hide most of our TVs equipment. The cabinet above the TV is too high up for my wife and son to really use, so I turned it into an AV equipment cabinet. I used industrial grade velcro to mount most of the things as I was concerned about driving a screw into a water pipe with the shower on the opposite side of the cabinet.

                        The site has a 2mb file limit, I’ll have to upload and post some pictures later.
