RE: Tv mount question

Depending on the size of the TV you're wanting to mount would drive my suggestions. If it's smaller (21" or so), you can get away with an vertical articulating mount similar to this one. https://www.monoprice.com/product?p_id=7844 Note that the two mounting screws are vertical, one above the other so you basically just have to identify a vertical stud and hit it solidly. If it's a bigger TV, something like this might be your best best, Again Vertical mounting screws. https://www.monoprice.com/product?p_id=6198 If you go with the cabinet mount as described above, you could use toggle bolts through the cabinet and put a backer inside the cabinet to support. If you go with the exterior wall, measure the thickness of your wall at the entry door. Then measure the thickness of the mounting plate and use screws 1/8" less than the two measurements totaled so you don't puncture the fiberglass outside.

RE: New Trailer Thoughts

I would recommend not getting a "Fiberglass" exterior from any manufacturer. That "great" looking skin is backed by wood! When moisture penetrates the seams you get the "dreaded" delamination,which will cost you at least 10% in resale value!!! (The exception is those rv's built with Azdel backing). So look at the "old" aluminum sided rv's. Maintain the seals and all is well. Seals need maintained on Aluminum trailers too, otherwise they leak and rot. X2 Get whichever you want or like best and get you rear on the roof 2-3 times a year and check all your seams and seals and redo any that look like they may have a crack or place for water to get in. Check the corner seams on all four corners and the seams on the front of the trailer as well as it gets pounded with rain when hauling during a storm. Do that religiously and your camper will last. Don't and they all will rot if left to let water in, less the all aluminum trailers.

RE: Generator / Invertor

Another happy Predator 3500 here. Love that it's idle quiet unless it's being pushed to above 1200-1500 watts and even at full load, very reasonable. Used it run my AC this weekend while I was out there working and ran like a champ. Very happy with my purchase decision.

RE: Tongue Weight Reminder

I have seen that video a dozen times. Interesting but real world vehicle performance as little to do with models on a treadmill. That does not mean one can ignore proper trailer loading. However, in most cases the load in TT is determined the floor plan. Food goes in the pantry, pot and pans in the kitchen, linens in the linen closet etc. In addition the really heavy items like water and waste tanks are set buy the factory. You are correct in that the floor plan determines the storage places for many items but there are many things people can do to help. I carry bottled water in the front of the camper on the floor, along with tool boxes and anything else of significant weight. Getting as much weight forward as I can with what I can control and then making sure I'm not doing anything stupid to counteract it like traveling with full tanks in the rear of the camper. Find out which tanks are forward of the wheels and travel with those full if you have sway, make sure anything rearward is as light as it can be. And it doesn't have to be the heaviest item in the world. the further it is from the wheels, the more it shifts weight that direction, just like a teeter totter. It's all leverage, wherever you put it.
