Did you ever get the antenna wire to the new location ?

I don't know about Landyacht 92, but we got our antenna wire pulled - went through the floor channel as you said from passenger side to drivers side, then went through the back of the lower cabinets, behind the sofa and up the wall beside the door frame (for now). We will put a piece of channel there to cover the wire.

Unfortunately in the process of hooking up to the antenna booster we found that the switch in the booster was shot……

Sort of like the operation was a success but the patient died However that too shall be fixed!

Thank you, Trident, for your description of how this is done.

I think if makes the two slides act more like one and that makes it all stronger. See the plate in the picture.
Moving ahead on your plan, which looks excellent. Suggestions re. the plate, thickness? I imagine that dimensions are dictated by the mounting holes on the rear of the TV. Any other suggestions?

I wanted a 12 volt because I only want to crank up the antenna and reach for the remote. This one has a cd built in ,Attachment 212019Attachment 212020Attachment 212021Attachment 212022can be a
computer monitor , USB and other features. The mount I came up with holds the TV only 3/8 to 1/2 inch from the wall good in that location but it still slides out to make connections or for better viewing.
This might be a duplicate posting of one I thought I posted earlier today. Trident, I'm impressed with your design and plan to coop it. But a question: dimensions of your steel mounting plate? Assume that the holes needing to be drilled are disctated by the TV backside. Any suggestions, hints would be most appreicated.

And thanks.

Mike

You are on the right track with the plate it will add strength to the back of the TV. The plate is aluminum and maybe 1/6"thick and yes the holes line up with the threaded holes on the tv. You may need to drill a hole in each of the slides to line up with the holes on the tv.
Good luck
I think there are pictures of the my installation back in the thread but I will try to send Click image for larger version

The picture is a great help. Thanks. A question: How did you fasten the slides to the wall, as I recall there is not much meat there (or am I mistaken?).

No you have it right.
I used several pre drilled wooden blocks to to give the screws more to hold on to and eliminate the scratch hazard in the closet .Click image for larger version
