mounting points

how can I determine where and to what depth it is safe to mount something to a wall. For example a flat screen TV.

For that kind of mounting, be sure to go into a stringer. The aluminum itself won't hold up a TV set, IMHO.

Stringers can be found by looking for rows of rivets. They are used to fasten the interior aluminum sheets. Sometimes though a row could simply be holding two sheets together, so have a close look at where you want to put fasteners.

Us either stainless steel or aluminum screws, BTW. Regular steel will corrode.

I mounted our two flat panels to interior wood divider panels with anchors and screws without any problems. One was mounted on a wood bedroom wall and the second on the divider between our dinette and the refrigerator. If you have a spot available that saves drilling into the interior aluminum walls.
