I have a Coleman CTS192. It has a sticker, similar to the one attached. The sticker is a starting point but it does not show where to screw in the screws of the bracket. I used a stud finder and it seems the density in the area around the sticker is definitely higher than the surrounding wall but the wall still seems a bit flimsy.
I'm wondering if a best practice is to reinforce the area where the tv mount will be installed with a piece of plywood - that is screw a piece of plywood to the wall in the sticker area and then attach the tv bracket to the plywood.
Another concern is screwing all the way through to the outer skin of the TT. Anyone know how thick the walls are? I could measure the thickness at the doorway but that is going to be a bit wider due to the door frame most likely.
And even more concerning than screwing through the TT outer skin is screwing into a electrical wire. Is there any good way to prevent cutting a wire when doing this sort of thing? Another project is inserting a Fan-Tastic fan and I have the same concerns there. One thought is to turn on all the power to the RV and all lights and run a non-contact voltage detector around the walls (tv mount)/ceiling (Fan-Tastic Fan cut in) and hope it will light up if it detects a voltage but that is probably just wishful thinking.
Locate your studs, make sure at least 2 of the lag screws make it into a stud. IIRC I used 1" lags because the ones that came with the mounting bracket were too long. Bridging a couple of studs with a piece of 3/4" plywood painted or stained to match is also a good idea. I did something similar at my parents house to mount my dad's 48" computer monitor on.

Now that I think about it if I'm screwing into a stud as you suggested I shouldn't be cutting into any wires assuming the manufacturer used steel plates to protect areas where wiring runs through studs.
I'll be using 1" lags and probably plywood between a couple studs.
