We're in the 'burbs south of Birmingham, just up 280 from you. Our tornado warning sounded around 11 til midnight before it moved east toward you. No scrambled eggs, thank you!

Tammie your idea of using styrofoam works great. Years ago I had a problem with someone hitting golfballs into the storage lot I had my class A in and ended up with a broken side window. I made up some window covers with one inch thick styrofoam inside and never had another problem. I did test the styro first with a golfball......only made a small dent in it. BTW the MH had fiberglass sides and roof and if it had been hit by any of the balls I never saw any marks from them. Fiberglass is some tuff stuff.

In case your wondering, I screwed the TV mount thru the cabinet to a piece of 1 x 4 inside, than also a piece of 1 x 4 outside and a slice if a 2 x 4 under it. Should keep it stable. Don't screw into those white square columns on the sides, they have wire, pipes etc going thru them! Am going to pain it white so it doesn't stick out.

Good you have a carport you can put your ParkLiner under Gretchen! These trailers are tall! I am still considering a carport for 006. Problem is all it's been doing is raining, and I still need to finish waxing it, plus got a bunch of other stuff to do. Squeezed for time!

Ya know Gretchen, I had not started wondering, but as always, your advice is very much appreciated. We have the perfect little lightweight flat screen TV in our guest room that we're going to mount in the ParkLiner right where you mounted yours. We ordered a mount for it from Amazon (and a cable outlet for the trailer), so once the raindrops stop here I can get in it and take a look at the space there.

By the way, after losing the microwave on the way home from NJ last September, I am a bit concerned about stability!

Thanks for the tips!

Frank

TV Mount in Parkliner

Hi Frank, THought you might like a pic of how I put the tv up. Worked out well. Feels sturdy.

ps. Thanks for sharing about the micorwave, I looked at mine and there are two screws from up underneath, looks like they are going into the bottom of the feet, so should be fine.

Thanks Carol. I am a quilter and those are fabric yo-yos. I have gotten crazy making them. They are so fun and easy, makes great pillow decorations too.

Weather should be real nice this weekend, at least no tornados.

Aha! I thought you mounted from above, but nope, from the side. Honestly Gretchen, I'm not sure when I'm going to get to this stuff, at least for the next two or three days. Spring came, too much to do.

Thanks for the pics, I'm still thinking about this. Did you do a cable connection out to in, like this: Amazon.com: Prime Products 08-6215 White Weatherproof Cable TV Kit: Automotive

We have one coming. I think I will mount "out" to the left of the electrical plug, and run in and up that adjacent column (right behind the dinette window) to the upper cabinet and run the cable around the cabinets to the other side, and give me an outlet over by where the TV will be. Actually, I may put an outlet over by the dinette too. Hmmm. Whatever I do, pics will follow.

Hey, we had those screws in the bottom of our microwave too! When the microwave came out, those screws (big ones too) pulled right out. They're like sheetrock screws, NOT machine screws; i.e., they are not threaded to fit a corresponding embedded nut. Plus the darn microwave is heavy! Those aluminum straps are real easy to make, but the microwave has to come out to drill the upper holes. Peace of mind.

Gail & I did spend some time tonight going through camping stuff (we have a ton of it), and figuring out what to bring and where stuff would go for our first trip, and subsequent ones. Things will lighten up some next week and I can play more!

Frank

Thanks Frank for telling me about the microwave screws. Perhaps I will replace them with beefier ones at the least. I would hate for that to fall out as well.

Chandler ran a tv cable from the elec plug outside in and up thru the column, so just have to run it thru the cabinets to the tv.

My tv mount can only be used from the side. Don't know if there is a top mount type. My tv also has a dvd player in the top, got it at walmart, kinda nice.

Could zip tie the cords or put in a small plastic chase with double sided tape.

SPeaking of camping, time to load it up!!
