The only wall suitable for the tv mount in the dinette area in an Escape e19/e21/5.0 would be the refrigerator wall, there is a stud the whole edge length, the other kitchen wall is hollow where a mount would be put.

I concur.

I only mounted in the place shown. The arm swings out enough so that we can still see the tv just fine. Im working on a bumper mount for the second one so that we can take the tv outside to watch on nice evening while enjoying our evening drinks

we had ETI install the optional 2nd wardrobe cabinet where that "2 drawer cabinet" is in the std layout..leaving a small area for a TV mount, but a larger area forward of the added cabinet, near the outboard side of the front bed.... I guess I will just let ETI do it on PickUpDay

even if you have a 120 volt converter (inverter?) get a 12 volt model. the converter uses a lot of power and cuts out at a higher battery voltage. you can watch tv longer with a 12 volt setup

I have a RCA tv/DVD combination Im using in my Casita SD. It has a 19 screen and is 12 volt, power is by a 12 volt cord plugged into a universal 12 volt power socket. Ive had it for two years and so far liking it. Ive only used it playing DVDs or with my iPad. The picture is really good, sound quality not great, so I installed a small sound bar above the tv.

Do it the we lotto is but you draw, even if it is only 90% effective, the loss is really negligible. Just two slices of toast in the morning would use more energy that a week is evening's entertainment would.

Besides, you then get to choose from a vast array of better and less costly TV's.

Wow, a VCR in 2020 ? I haven't messed with a VHS tape since, oh, i dunno, 10-15 years ago? Never did like the fuzzy video that VHS output even under the best of conditions.

Another problem with 15 year old VHS tapes is that the oxide falls off the celluloid. I took my family video ( shot on a VHS camera ) to a shop where they were transferred to DVD. Lots of sections with nothing but blue screen where the oxide had deteriorated.

Some years from now, I'll have to have the DVDs copied to some other medium. I'd be more concerned if anybody actually watched them.

I added a very small Sony DVD player since my 22 inch combo Smart TV/DVD can't do Blu-Ray and we often do free local library movies that are Blu-Ray. Also has WiFi with the usual array of apps. Full HD resolution now whereas the onboard DVD was only good for 720p.



The player is only 9 inches wide, a bit over an inch tall, and so light we often pack it to foreign countries where there are no English speaking channels on hotel TV other than CNN.

Question t v

Finally decided and ordered the TV..Ended up getting a `19" (same as the Casita had) from RoadTrucker: Skyworth SLC- 1921A-3S, LED AC/DC HDTV/DVD combo. Lots of good reviews and it fits our needs..we are not really big TV watchers..[heck we can do that at home], but we wanted something w good sound and pix and small enuf to not be obtrusive..this is about what we had in the Casita and it mostly sat there looking at us. Came in 2 days and in a nice heavy duty storage box w solid handle, so we can store it away while traveling and not worry if it is gonna strain the mount or 'whip around' and break something. Good to go.
