Flat Panel TV Installation
When we bought our '99 22' Four Winds RV in 2002, it came equipped with a 14" glass tube TV that the "Previous Owner" had installed.
Here is the old Analog TV mounted on a custom built wooden corner shelf
With the recent change from Analog to Digital TV, we decided that we did not want to use a converter and bought a 22" flat panel TV (with DVD player) from Best Buy.
Below are pictures of my installation.
is our new 22" flat panel Digital TV (with DVD player). It is mounted in
basically the same location. While traveling, the TV is clamped to a shelf to
prohibit movement. |
The TV is shown here in the Clamped Down "Travel" Mode

The oval base is permenantly attached the TV and resting on a shelf
to help support the weight while traveling
Here is a close up of the foam padded Clamp that
holds the TV in place on the shelf when traveling.
|Here is the TV swung out to the Viewing Mode. In this pic (sorry for the blur), the top of the TV is not parallel with the bottom of the cabinet above . I have now corrected that.|
Here is another pic of the TV swung out to the Viewing Mode.
The TV will never be in this swung-out position while traveling
is a pic of the bi-fold arm that mounts the TV to, and yet detaches from, the
mounting base plate is 1/8" aluminum and held in place by 24 screws. I used
a LOT of screws to spread the cantilevered weight because the wall is very thin
(1/8") plywood and I could not find a solid stud behind the wall.
