New TV now what?

I came up with a with a TV mount that holds a 22 inch LED Tv 3/8 inch from the wall, behind the bench seat and still moves for better viewing and access to the back Tv wire connections, if anyone needs such a thing? What I hope is someone can help me with is what to do with that large hole in my dash any ides please would be helpful. It's a 30 foot 1998 land yacht motorhome. My brother thought a wine rack, I don't think so!
Thanks

A bunch of things you could stick in a big round hole: a clock, a barometer, an altimeter, an aircraft turn-and-bank indicator that would not only play with people's heads but also serve a very useful purpose for leveling your motorhome when you park itÖ

That's good, the altimeter, and barometer I have (and I don't know why) but they are a little small and hard to read if not mounted in the dash. But that large clock idea sure would be better then looking at that big hole in the dash.
Thanks

Sorry about that I hit the wrong button.
I could do all of that with my IPad connected to the monitor but I need that for my new tv.
So this would work if I can find affordable way to run the monitor in the dash, any ideas?

A back up camera? You would still have additional space to fill, but an option. I would be very interested to hear how you installed the LED TV's. I have a 97 Land Yacht and it still has both original TV's.

I am taking pictures as I go and I am close to having it installed behind the bench seat at the table. I will post the pictures if I can within the next seven days, Lord willing.
I have a backup camera left of the steering wheel.
I still need to fill that spot.

I was able to get some help so Installed the tv today.
I used ball bearing drawer slides for this project and I believe it was an excellent choice. I can slide the tv out for better viewing but I don't think that is needed. It is maybe 3/8 inch to a 1/2 inch from the wall which is important in that location. I am able however to get to all of the tv connections easily when extended out all three sections. I will get the model number of the drawer slides tomorrow and post it if I can.
You may have some questions, I will help if I can.

Great pictures! The configuration of your Land Yacht and mine look the same from what I can see. I don't recall having power on the the wall with the thermostat. Did I you add that as part of the tv project?

My Land Yacht is a couple years newer the outlet was there when I bought it. It's a 12 volt tv so I won't be using that outlet for this tv but only for this test. My next problem will be to get the antenna connection into that closet behind the tv, any thoughts on the best way to go with that?

Hi - we also have a 1997, and we copied Trident's idea. For power we took power from the plug under the dinette seat and made a second plug in the closet, drilled a hole for the wire behind the TV.
