    Mounting outside TV

    We're planning to put a TV in the storage area (to the right of the door) on our 305. My husband wants to mount it on the inside wall of the storage area so it can swing out to view or store inside. Does anyone have any suggestion where to mount to avoid wires, etc and how to mount it safely? I have visions of screwing into something we shouldn't Any tips would be appreciated. thanks!

    Marianne we got one from monoprice.com. It swings over and out and makes for easy viewing. It was only about $40. We installed it on the right side of the basement wall and didn't have any issues whatsoever. I also covered a 1/4 piece of plywood the size of the TV and covered it with some heavy felt. I put elastic bands on it so it slides over the front of the TV. WE have everything secured along the walls of the basement but I figured better be safe than sorry! There is always something we throw in at the last minute that is not secured.

    I purchased one from monoprice.com and mounted a 32" on the right hand wall of my 303RLS. I carefully measured it out and mounted it so that when the TV swings inside and up against the wall, it is also resting on the floor of the storage compartment. This prevents excess stress on the mount and the TV doesn't bounce around going down the road.

    Renee,

    I kept the clear shipping film on the screen since it does not hinder the picture when its on. I also drape a piece of felt over it when in the storage area. I works out great. I can get you a pic on Thursday when I go get it for our Halloween trip.

    Here is a mount I found and may try for my 355th......looks like it might be the best answer especially for the locking feature on the ceiling of the basement.

    have a look, see what you think. little pricey but a real good solution

    Your 355 did not come with a mount to move the bed room TV to the basement? I thought that was standard equipment on the THers.
