TV Mount

I mounted mine on the wall over the fridge directly to the panel. The wall itself without reinforcement is strong enough but I take it down for travel as I don't want it to swing out or break loose or be a theft issue. The DVD player/amp/tuner is in the bin directly overhead. The screen is a 22" Vizio.

Your setup looks great, Rich. Love the real wood you've put in your coach, too.

TV Mount

It was a step at a time process doing the wood work. I have to tighten up the Allen screws on the TV from time to time to keep it level. It's just the right size to fit in a plastic bin under the bed for travel. Also bought a Bose/Onkyo stereo from Sam's that fits in the overhead bin and then mounted the small Bose speakers in the front and the subwoofer next to the furnace.

When I redid my kitchen and countertop area last year I installed a wall mount TV support on the wall that faces the fridg. I put in a new peice of plywood and added a 1/2" thick piece of wood 12'" square on the back side. I then mounted my wall mount holder in this area. This provides a very secure holder for the TV. The wall mount devise attaches to the TV and then snaps in place on the holder on the wall. The TV can be removed for storage, it also swivels for positioning. I do not travel with the TV mounted.

I also build a cover to hide my satellite box and all of the wires. It matches the wood on my bar/counter top. The front has screen mesh so that the remote works and can be removed if need and is held in place with Velcro. I also installed a XM satellite that connects to my stereo system throw the FM frequency modulator. Here are a few pictures

I Like it!!! Great idea. I need a good place to keep my DVD player and Satellite Receiver. Right now they are kept in the credenza and I'm not satisfied with that.

Where Can I Buy This Mounting Bar??

Just found a picture in an article on Airstream.com regarding winter care of LCD tvs. The metal bar shown would be perfect for my situation. It would allow me to mount my bracket without removing my fridge! Anyone know the source?

Thanks for the help!!!
