Skiman,

We have the standard ETI mount and it sags so the arm slants down a bit. The end of the TV nearest the wall mount is noticeably higher than the end away from the mount, and TV mount cannot be rotated to compensate. Does this mount allow the TV to be rotated to allow for this?

In the Amazon picture (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...?ie=UTF8&psc=1) with the extended arm I would need to be able to rotate the mounting plate counter clockwise.

I hope this makes sense - not sure I am being clear.

Malcolm, no photos available. Fox hunt has the trailer now. The mount was on the wall right by the fridge. It was the escape standard mount. We used a 19" jensen TV. Hope that helps

Jamman,

The mount does not have provision to rotate about an axis perpendicular to the screen. I understand exactly what you mean. The mount seems very ridgid and is supposed to hold 25 lbs. Deflection on my 6 lb TV should be minimal. You probably can compensate a little on the mount to the wall. I'll let you know after mounting.

Picked up our 21 in late Sept. Brought along my Majestic 21 in tv-dvd combo, 10#. It's a special low draw 12 volt tv. The escape techs mounted both tv mounts perfectly, one near bed the other on wall next to fridge. Works out great, had 12 volt and coax put near both mounts. Really happy with this combo. The tv is a little pricy, 489.00 but is built for a marine environment.

Ok,

Got the TV installed finally. The mount is very rigid and sag does not seem to be much of an issue. The latching mechanism works well. Installed this way the TV can face the bed, be swung out to face the counter, or swung all the way around to face the dinette. You will need to have the reinforced walls because there is a lot of rotational stress on the mount when it is swung out to face the dinette. I will probably stick a piece of foam under it while on the road as the Samsung 22' TV does not seem real strong in the mounting area.

The mount to the TV is over sized and was cut down for the 75 x 75 Vesa mount on the TV. I left the 100 x 100 holes in case I would every want to go with a Jensen or Naxa TV since they are 100 x 100 mounts.

I had a left over remote infrared sensor from a previous radio and installed that with velcro to the top of the TV. The ETI installed Stereo has and input for a remote sensor and it plugged right in. This allows the Jensen remote to work from the dinette.

I am very pleased with how it all turned out. Finding a mount with the right arm length was the key.

Ski,

That setup works really well with your U-shaped seating at the dinette. Nice plan well executed!

Skiman, what/where is that mount from? I searched the thread and could not find it. On the wall reinforcement, that consists of a 3/4 inch piece of plywood sandwiched between the pretty inside/outside wood layers. Not retrofittable.

The mount is the one in post 33. Amazon is out of stock but it is available from other places. A work around on reinforcement would be to surface mount a nice piece of oak across the cabinet face and pick up the cabinet framing with 4 screws. Edge could be routed to make it pretty or even a bevel cut. Some clear urethene and you would have a good strong mounting place.

And, how much would that nice piece of oak cost versus a piece of pine or plywood or whatever they use on the back side of a wall? Why?
