On the build sheet Escape says the wall mount extendable arm is for 15' to 19" TVs. I was thinking about asking them about this since finding even a 19" TV from a good manufacturer is becoming difficult.

They didn't say, but can you even buy anything but a flat panel now?

Not now, but 3 years ago when the trailer was manufactured, maybe.

My build sheet says the arm is "For 15" - 22" TVs". The arm maker normally puts the size limits on the TV. And we should probably derate them a bit or remove the TV for travel - most houses don't shake as much as trailers going down the road. (LOL)

I am sure the arm limits are for flat panel TVs. I remember moving a 21" CRT TV - not light. And the wall mounts they used to have for them - MUCH larger.
