I have a 19 foot and I want to leave my television on the arm when I travel. The arm was mounted by Escape right below where the furnace thermostat is on the bedroom wall frig side. I bought a travel strap but Iím thinking it wonít work properly because of where the swing arm is mounted. Before I start drilling holes Iím hoping someone with a nineteen can give me some ideas on the best way to do this if itís possible.
On my 19 I mounted the TV on the wall by the stove so I don't have any photos of that situation that would be useful. We always used to take it off when traveling but then we started just putting a strap on it and never had any problems, even on rough roads.
The photo shows the typical way Escape frames the wall next to the fridge. It's a Gen 1 but I'm guessing that your framing is pretty much the same. You can run your hand firmly down the wall and feel where the framing is. Or go knock-knock or look for the tiny pin hole marks from their pin nails.
I was lucky on the 21. There's solid framing at the top of the drawer stack and at the bottom of the overhead cabinets so installing a restraining strap was dead easy.
