Bedroom T.V. mount

We're wanting to install a tv mount in the master bedroom of our sunset trail 320bh. We want to use the PAW mounts that are the same that came with camper this way I can use the same tv for the bedroom and outside. Where the "mount tv here" sticker is on the bedroom wall will not work, if I center the tv with the sticker it will hang out into the doorway. Basically, I need to go about 8in. over from the sticker. I can feel solid wood behind the wall where I want to place the mount but not sure if it is strong enough to hold the tv or not. I've searched through the manuals and not able to find anything regarding mounting tv's.

If you can't find substantial support within the area you want to mount the TV, you might have to resort to spanning the studs that are in that area with a piece of plywood or a board. Then you would have something solid to anchor to.

The t.v. Is a 32in but only weighs 10lbs so not extremely heavy. I can feel solid wood behind the wall where we would want to mount it just wasn't sure about the "mount here" sticker. That nota bad idea to put some extra support on the outside. I could use a piece of stained plywood that would match the rest of the trim. I know the easiest thing to do is to take it to the dealer, but like most people on here I'm a hands on, figure it out, do it myself kind of person.

If you have a stud finder, use that. It will tell you where the aluminum studs are just as well as wood studs.

I would get a stud finder and check for sure. I would not go by any sticker that one of those flunkys at the factory put on the wall. If it feels solid where you would like to mount it there is probably a stud there

Yeah I kinda agree with the don't trust the sticker idea. We are actually at a campground right now but when we get home tomorrow I'll break out the stud finder and see what I can figure out.

While you have the stud finder out, run it over the area where you think the factory plywood board behind the wall is located and find the edges of the factory board...That way you could determine if you would need a second exterior board...
