We have a Samsung 24" HDTV mounted on a swing arm mount that allows viewing from the dining table or bed in our 2005 19' Bambi.

We've had it for three years, and we've traveled about 20,000 miles during that time.

To date, we've had absolutely no problems with the TV or mount.

What brand and model are the problem TVs? Also, any evidence as to why they are coming apart?

The frame on the TV snaps together. The high force required to move the swivel mount is more than the frame can take. I move the TV by the arm in back only, never by pushing on the screen or frame.

Our AS is in winter storage now so I can't check the specific TV info (it's a Samsung,) but this was just basic pavement driving, although there are oftentimes bumps in the road. We'd driven a lot with no problems till this happened. Doing some advance work to secure the TV layers seems like a good idea. If it isn't necessary, no harm done. If it keeps your TV in one piece.....

We have two original Samsung tv's in our Airstream with no issues with them either, or anything else coming apart in extensive travels all over the country.

I would look into what may be causing the excessive shaking breaking these tv's, especially if there are other things coming undone.
