Default 2nd TV in the Leisure Travel

I finally got the 2nd TV installed. Thanks to some great tips on this board I made sure there was a "bullet proof" mode for traveling. I wanted a long enough swing arm to make the TV visible from the front when the wife is sleeping in. I got the arm on Ebay for $15. After looking at quite a few I bought this one because of the exposed bolts/nuts at the pivot points. They are easy to tighten as needed. Not the fanciest but so far works great. Also got the TV on Ebay for $120 new. I also added a DVD player and shelf. I still plan on adding a CPU tower so the TV has monitor capabilities. One nice find was a 200 watt inverter, Black and Decker, for $16. Yea, Ebay. I mounted that a little different but forgot pic. Will update. I changed the wineguard batwing for a cheap $27 omni directional Digital outdoor antenna but need to play with it to see how good it is. Seems ok. Here are the links for what I got:

Looks great! Good prices for everything. The range of motion for the TV mount is a perfect fit.

Looks good, and apparently viewable from almost anywhere in the van.

What make is the articulating arm mount? I paid 6X what you paid for mine, and it doesn't look much different. I'm thinking the one you got looks a bit more solid, and I might be interested in getting one.

There is no name on it. "Ebay Special" I like it because it is easy to tighten. The only mod I need to make is to ad a washer to the TV plate side of the "tilt" point. For a 22" LED it is great

OK, no problem. I got mine at Walmart and I see they've got way more to choose from now.
Maybe I'll just keep my eyes open when browsing their electronics aisle.....might find an upgrade.

I did almost the same thing in my 91 Leisure travel. I now have a 2002 Freedom 2A and installed a 23 in where the original was.

Who retires from fishing????????

That is the reason the front TV looks like it does. After using my head to try to remove it too many times I used my head and removed it! There is a thread with pics here on taking the ole one out.

slipbobber: thanks! actually after posting my reply I found your replacement thread. I want to do the same thing but am afraid of making a giant mess that I can't undo.

Maybe you can help me ...and forgive a total newbie's dumb question... but how do you figure out how the TV goes in?? I'm assuming I have to take off the padded buttons to access bolts or some such behind? Are they easy to get off? If I pull'em off will they go back on?? I'm sooo tempted to just haul'em off but like I said, don't want to make a complete mess! lol

You are on the right track. The buttons snap off easy. A little prying. The go back on easy too. Behind them are screws. The triangle like shaped piece above the TV is mounted with some super hero Velcro. It will pull off. Took a little bit of figuring out for that. After that is out you get a look at the TV. There is a metal band that goes around the TV and bolts to two studs that are mounted into the roof. I think you can see them in the pics.I am looking for a led light fixture for that spot that will cover the bolts... The sides of the box that holds the TV go all the way to the front. I took the entire box out in one piece then took it apart and cut the sides and bottom to be flush with the rest of the console. It wasn't that difficult, just took some time. Don't be afraid, you can do it! Let me know if you need more. Good luck
