2017 kodiak 186E tv mount

My local dealership apparently doesn't do TV installs and I've contacted dutchman directly about where the plate is for the lcd tv mount, but they said to contact the dealership so no help there!

Can anyone give me measurements on where the mounting plate is, I've tried a stud finder and haven't been having much luck...

These trailers do not have a TV antenna do they? If not you need that. and then the TV.

They do have a tv antenna, and besides there are lots of other ways to watch media other then over the air

Haha, that's the last way I would ever watch tv.

On the 2012 it is dead center above the dinette window between the shelf with the entertainment system and the front bunk. The floorplans and photos of the 2017 on the website look almost identical to the 2012, just with different trim etc. The 2012 actually had a sticker for the mounting location. I would try the stud finder in that area again if you have not checked there already.

Yeah I've seen photos of the mount sticker on older models and the sticker seems closer to the stereo then the bunk side.

Would you say basically right above the center of the window? I'll try my stud finder again but it's all over the place.

I am not sure how reliable number from a 2012 are but I measured 8" down from the ceiling and 17" to the right of the shelf is the center of my mount. It is not quite dead center, looks a little left of center.

Awesome! Thanks for this!

I'll measure to that area and put a pin in and see if I get any resistance.

I don't see them having changed it since 2012

Your measurements worked perfectly! Thank you so much! No surprise the rv community comes through when the dealerships and manufacturers can't!
