TV Recommendation Needed for 31KE Bedroom Wall
« on: February 19, 2018, 03:34:16 PM »
We are new to a 2017 Winnebago 31KE, there is no TV in the bedroom.  Can anyone recommend a HDTV brand and model that would fit and be compatible with a PAW mount.  (Feel free to recommend a different mount that may be better suited)  Thanks.

Any LED lit flat panel TV that you like will work. Vizeo, Samsung, Sony, LG, etc.I'm partial to Sony and Samsung. I have no idea what a PAW mount is but if it's VESA compatible it should work. Google VESA for more details.

Picked up an Insignia 19" from Best Buy for $70, ordered the Paw mount, will be a perfect fit on the wall.  TV antenna and power, both 12v and 120v are already mounted on the wall. This should be a snap, even for me.  Thanks.

I know the post is a little stale, but I'd be interested to learn how you fared.

Quite well actually.  A few small bumps, I bought the PAW mount off eBay, but the TV mount came with the 100mm x 100mm mount, the Insignia 19" had a 75mm x 75mm mount.  I contacted PAW, they were great, they advised that the 75mm mounts were being phased out by the TV industry, but they still had some and shipped me a 75mm mount at no charge!  They were great to do business with.

I bought some 90 degree coaxial adapters and a 1 foot coaxial cable to make the coaxial connections neat and slick. There is a 3/4" wood panel behind the wall to facilitate holding the mount, 6 - 3/4" wood screws locked the base mount to the wall, it's not moving.

The screen is 19" and the diagonal dimensions are about 22" any bigger may not fit with the angles of the adjacent walls.  Picture may be a little canted, but the TV is perfectly level.

The 12 volt adapter comes in handy to mount my TST507 Tire Pressure Monitor repeater when we are towing.

Yes, nice install. I've had bad luck with those 90o F connectors internally breaking so if your picture goes wonky, check those first.

Could the mount be mounted higher so that the TV would cover the cables?

No, maybe a different type of mount could straddle the connection plugs, but the PAW mount could not.  Actually the height it's at is perfect IMO for viewing. Doesn't bother us, we're ok with it.
