I attached mine to a universal adapter plate, again available online for less than 20 bucks. I inserted some spacers to extend it a bit so that the TV wouldn't interfere with the power cord underneath.

I've learned a lot in my first year of trailer ownership. One is to just deal with this kind of stuff. Waiting for the dealer is agony. Place the orders online and your TV could have been up in less than a week.

All good points!

OP should not have to order part him/herself. Tv was ordered with trailer and all mating parts should have been supplied. Dealer should have installed it for him or at least made sure it could be installed correctly.

You guys might be installing TV's that are too big. I was told no bigger than a 26" TV. My family bought me a VIZIO 26" LED from Costco that works great. The bracket fir with no issues.

I know it can be done.
My issue is I paid $544 for something that doesn't work. Why should I let them off the hook? It's a brand new trailer. Apparently others have the exact same problem.

Absolutely, I agree with what SHOULD occur Harley and JW. I just found the whole run the trailer to the dealer, wait for approval from Crossroads, wait for the part shipment, wait for the install, pick up the trailer,... ridiculous. Hell, the cost of gas hauling it back and forth to the dealer would be cheaper than the cost of the bracket.

I had an awning issue in my 2nd month-brought it to the dealer, waited 10 days for the part. The part was wrong-dealer claimed Crossroads sent the wrong part. waited another 10 days. Got my trailer back after a month during the best camping weather of the season.

None of this should happen, but it is common in the wacky world of RV dealers and manufacturers.

I decided then that I would not do that again. the $30 parts for a TV bracket is not worth the dealer hassle, and my time and expense.

Bert, I saw a weight rating somewhere on the outside mount and should be OK with my 32 inch TV.

The LED TV's are nice because they are light.

Still , if you buy it yourself , contact someone a CR and have them re imburse you and put in a formal complaint to them stating that you should not have to do this yourself as it was already paid for. They have to be accountable.
