Re: TV antenna with amplifier

Hi: JerryS...Yes 1/2 of the large square metal plate attaches to the back of the TV. w/ 4 screws. Then it clips over the top of the arm plate and attaches at the bottom with 2 bolts. The arm stays in the trailer and I used the foot/stand supplied with the Toshiba 19" in the den. Took me all of 5 min. to take it out and set it up. We have a nice looking 3-4" sliding gate bolt on the wall to keep the TV anchored there for travel. It is just visable above the TV in the pic. "ready to tow". Alf

Re: TV antenna with amplifier

Alf, is the mounting plate meant to come off and on easy, or is it just something that is not too tough to do? You mention 2 bolts, do you need a wrench to remove them? What is the make of it?

Re: TV antenna with amplifier

Hi: Jim... Only a Phillips screwdriver needed to take off the 2 bottom bolts then the TV lifts off. It's about as quick as it gets but rugged enough to hold firm. Alf

Re: TV antenna with amplifier

We got the tv mount w/the tv antennae/booster in addition to the coaxial cable connector/wiring in our new 19. As stated earlier, the antennae works fine picking up digital channels (even HiDef) when within range - which is shorter with digital than analog. Definitely a luxury to have the cable hookups for the times when staying for only 1 night in a campground (with cable) when passing through- just like a hotel. Also, I was able to catch the UT vs OU game while in Vernal UT.

For the times when truly camping (e.g. in state parks & nat'l forests), it's nice to be able to easily leave the tv at home. Jim - on the mount that Reace installed in our 19, there is a single screw that detaches the tv from the arm. It has a know on it so you don't even need a screw driver. We'll just leave the arm folded up out of the way & put the tv in our bedroom at the house - the tv came with a detachable stand which was nice & enables us to easily use it at the house too. (will add pics of the arm with the mounting later).

Hi Alf - In about 8 months.

Brad and Shay - Thanks for the added input on the TV setup as well. I'll look for your mounting arm pix in the future.
