Ultra Thin Articulating Outside TV mount

Anyone change the TV mount on their outside TV to a Articulating design!?

I have purchased two so far to no avail! The problem is they are too thick and hold the TV off the wall not allowing the cover to close. The last one I purchased was 2.7 inches from the wall and was still to thick.

Have searched Amazon and online till goggle-eyed. HELP!?

Have you tried this site?

TS325TU - Medium THINSTALL Dual Swing Arm Wall Display Mount - 25" Extension

They have thin mounts for various different TV sizes. The one at the link supposedly collapses to approx. 1.8 inches.

Mor/ryde makes TV mounts for the RV industry. See if one of theirs might work.

I would be interested in your findings. Installing an articulated mount is on my list of things to do as well, although it is on the B list right now.

QualGear articulating Outside TV Install

Got it done!

Had to counter sink the mount by cutting out the black panel cover and then 1/8 inch into the plywood - used the panel thickness as the router guide. Painted the plywood and installed the mount with 4 wood screws. I also cut the ends off the mount as it gave me an additional 5 degrees articulation. Also drilled a new access for the wires.

That looks nice. Does the mount latch in the retracted position, or are you using the door to hold it back?

Does not latch Jamie and I use the door as you stated. It retracts fully so there is no pressure on the door. Thought about a latch but really do not need it.

Darren,

Today I went snooping in my coach and noticed a removable panel under the dining area counter. I pulled the panel and when I looked inside I was staring at the back of the exterior television. The opening under the counter is about two feet deep and it looks like the only obstruction that would prevent changing the mount is a 120 volt receptacle that can be moved. Changing the mount should be a relatively easy mod when it becomes the A1 priority.

I also ordered magnets to keep they mount closed tight against the wall as they do on the 2017 Vegas, I went to camping world to see how they did their television mounting and they have magnets to keep the TV mount from shaking while traveling.


The only reason I wanted the swivel is to change it where the sun doesn't affect the Picture .. easier to move your chairs to a different location where you can watch the tv without the sun being on the screen .

Hudson,


Thanks for the info. I will be going on Amazon and getting one ordered.


Just wondering, you do not see any reason it would not work on the inside TV over the door? The angle you have to look up at to watch the TV is a bit awkward on the Vegas 24.1.
