too funny!

but i've moved past everyday duct tape to this stuff...

this is the most tenacious and tough duct tape i've ever tried.

u can tow with it, balance the running gear, patch a tire or replace a skin panel with it....

Where is Tustin?
I'm in Northern California

Do you remember what length screw you used? My rotating bracket only has two screw holes.

The more we use our trailer the more we love it, the trip we just got back from we were on the road for 12 days,( down the Oregon coast and over to Lake Tahoe) every day got better, it just works for us.

Regarding the TV bracket we installed it was from Sam's club, it only has provisions for 2 screws, ( I used 9/16" S.S. screws) but it has a quick release tab on the wall portion of the bracket, after the first day I started just taking the TV off of the wall bracket and laying it on the bed with a few pillows around it ( the mounting plate stays on the TV) takes about 2 min to snap it back into place and hook up your cables, whats nice about that feature is we can take it home and use it with the stand that came with it. But like most others are saying if you are going to leave it on the wall by all means back it up with some type of plate, when we picked up our trailer the service Tech showed me that on our model it is easy to unscrew and open the wall for access to install a backing plate, and don't forget straps for securing it while in transit.

Regarding our home base, Tustin is not very big, we are about a 1/2 mile from interstate 5 and the 55 fwy.

Happy trailering,

Terry and Judi

hopefully the tele isn't RIDING up there in transit.

stuff REALLY bounces around behind the axles in rear bed models,

u FB folks don't have that issue to the same degree.

post 4 is from a real dealer/service center, he's provided the a/s part number

IF u aren't gonna use a backing plate, it's important to use something with a LOT of screws...

like the a/s spec'd wall bracket which COMES with the right length screws.

and NOT go over the size/wt limit, and a wall strap during travel.

otoh, elmer's glue might work just fine too

The TV rides in a quilted bag in the shower stall and the shelf is stowed in the upright and locked position during transit.

I also have found that gorilla tape better tna duct tape too. I sometines even have trouble getting the stuff off my hands.
