Kodiak 191 wall thickness?

I am a newbie! How do I find out how thick the wall is in my Kodiak Ultra Lite 186E? I would like to mount a TV. Thanks!

I have the 181e and have mounted a TV in the specified location above the dinette. There is supposed to be plywood inside the wall. I used heavy 1/2" screws to mount an articulating TV mount and have a 22" TV on it. I have not had issues with it and have taken it on some very rough roads too...

I had the same issue with mounting or making repairs requiring
a screw in the walls in my RV. As you have figured out the walls
are not that thick to hold a wood screw.

My solution I found online was "jack nuts". You can buy them on
amazon, etc. They come in different sizes depending on what you
are doing. There is a jack nut tool you can buy which is very
helpful and makes it easy to use. They are much like a
expandable molly that you use in hour home. But they are
thinner for the thin walls in the trailer.

I had a few window curtains headers which we hit at the screws
simple did not hold them in place. The Jack nuts were a perfect
solution for the wood screw replacements.

I used an electronic stud finder to verify that the sticker was in the wrong place...

There "should" be a piece of plywood in the mounting area. It is "supposed" to be 3/4" YMMV.
