tv upgrade

this is the last one Rick:O

what a great picture from this unit.... note the lack of unsightly cordage. The 12V outlet/cable box was relocated inside the cabinet and replaced with a second 12V outlet for the battery monitor or whatever. I could only find one with a stainless plate so I drilled a blank plastic one for aesthetics.<img src=http://www.fiberglassrv.com/board/uploads/3e9f6fb011d77sharp tv.jpg/>

monitor mount

circuit city had this pricey but effective universal swivel mount that was compatible with the sharp as well as other makes. A plate was fabbed to spread out the load inside the cabinet.<img src=http://www.fiberglassrv.com/board/uploads/3e9f705768cefsharp tv mount.jpg/>

new bulkheads

a piece of thin melamine shelving wedged into the cabinet with the relocated cable box hides all the wiring for the speaker and outlets.......unobtrusive yet accessible for switching cable modes. I'll add a splitter or second outlet for the videocassette player and run both off DC regardless of whether shore power is available or not.<img src=http://www.fiberglassrv.com/board/uploads/3e9f7234cf1c7bulkhead for tv.jpg/>

dual bulkheads

I added a second bulkhead on the right to protect the stereo wiring. When the 12V VCP comes in I'll mount it inside the cabinet and my all-12-volt entertainment console will be complete. <img src=http://www.fiberglassrv.com/board/uploads/3e9f746476da9bulkhead for stereo.jpg/>

thanks Ches- sice everything gets smaller in the corners they wedge into the carpet quite nicely without fasteners. I have incorporated alot of ideas that others have come up with. I can't wait for the Rally to see what everyone has done to make their rigs more comfortable and efficient.

Great job, Phil. I like your swivel mount better than mine.
Also, we detach the TV from the mount when we travel and lay it face down on the bed.

LCD TV

I put mine against the corner wall. You can see it well from everywhere. It has rode in that position without any trouble.
