I have a Voltage 3905. It has a small TV in the cubbyhole above the washer/dryer hookups. We enjoy spending time in the garage/patio/lanai and were thinking of putting in a larger TV on the wall that serves as the back wall of the double bed that is accessed from the gallery, but projects into the garage area. We have a 32" TV that we were using in the house and it is a very nice Sony Bravia. The panel I was thinking of putting it on, appears to actually be two panels...one on the garage side and separated from the panel at the back of the bed area by around 2 inches. So, I'm guessing that there is a two by something board at the sides that the two panels attach to. Anyway, this is what appears to be just simple dead air space. Anyway, the panels are very flimsy and since they are separated from each other by dead air space, I am sure I can't just hang the TV on a single panel...the screws/bolts or whatever, would surely pull loose as soon as we started moving. SOOOO>>>> what I am thinking of doing is to use Liquid Nails to attach an 8"X1" board (about 19" long) to the garage side, and a 2"X8" board to the bed side (also using Liquid Nails. And then, using lag screws to go from the TV wall mount on the garage side, into the board on the bed side. These are stout enough that I'm thinking they will basically create a "unit" between the two boards...and with the boards spreading the weight along a good part of each panel, that this should be sufficient to take a thin, flimsy panel, and turn it into a more useable panel. Hopefully my description does a good enough job of explaining my plan. If there are any engineering-minded folks out there who can comment on my approach, I'd appreciate it.
I just can't see us being happy with the little TV when we have that wide open unused space where we could (hopefully) hang a nice (and larger) TV. Now that I have my DirecTV mini-genie system up and running, I have to figure out a safe and secure way to make this work.
