Who has a TV mounted in a mobile Skid House?

2 posts in this topic

Hey Guys..........

I'm thinking hard about adding one of the larger, true 12 volt TVs (28"-32"), but I'm wondering how a mounted TV handles the bouncing a skid house goes through as it moves to many spots throughout the day on a lake....especially one that may not have alot of snow cover. Can I leave it mounted as I move around?  I can't image having to take it down every time I fire the ATV up to move my 8x10 aluminum hardside skidhouse.  Who has run this scenario through the ringer?  I feel this question is more applicable to a skidhouse, as the wheelhouses have their suspensions that clearly absorb a lot of that bouncing around a skid house goes through.  On a side note, I'm thinking of the true 12volt designed TVs (Jensen or Majestic) not just because they draw a lot less power than your normal big box store 110V version on an inverter, but also because they're described as being designed for the  additional abuse a TV goes through in the RV or Marine environments.  Maybe that's why they'd survive the bouncing around better?  If any of you have decided that leaving it while traveling around is working, are you using a fixed mounting bracket, or is one of the swinging mounts also an option that can be swung into place and locked?

It's a big investment, so I'd really like to hear from you guys that know all about this firsthand.

Thanks.........

I have a 27" viewsonic 12 volt TV in my skid house.  What I did was recess the TV into the wall and attached the TV through the wall with longer screws and lockwashers from the back side of the wall.  I have had no issues with the tv for the last 3 years.   I am sure you could use a regular TV mount as well, just make sure you use loctite when you insert the screws so they don't come loose on you.

    •   Because you have an affinity for such things??..    No, seriously, you need to take a good look at your browser's advanced settings.  Some browsers can be set so they will automatically wipe your cookies and search history every time you shut the browser down.  Not sure which browsers have this capability, but the one I use is Epic.    
    •   If we retrace what happened to get Obamacare passed in the first place, we need to remember the narrative that was used by the Democrats that there were 49 million Americans with no insurance.  Now they are saying 24 million Americans will lose their insurance if the law is struck down.  So I'm taking that to mean they actually got 24 million people to sign up in the exchanges under the law after 7 years.  So about as "successful" as the REAL ID Act...   Between the healthcare industry, big pharma, and the insurance industry, somewhere between $300 and $400 million was spent in lobbying to get the ACA passed.   The Koch brothers are pledging $300 to $400 million in the 2018 election cycle to strike the legislation down, and have also stated they will not support any politician in the future who votes for Ryan-Care.   It's how things work in the real world, like it, or not....

    •    In a  free market, ObamaCare would have collapsed two years ago. And all the promises made regarding it are and have been falling apart.   But government does not let boondoggles collapse. ObamaCare will be funded, unfortunately, with more debt and printing to keep it and all it's problems on life support   Think "too big to fail" and QE    
    •   Nunes Backs Down From Assertion Trump Was Monitored   Keep reading your fake news Uncle Bill. Also Nunes canned the next committee hearing on Russia. He is basically a Trump crony at this point, trying his best to obstruct the committees investigation.   There's Trump's transition team. Now go back and watch the Comey hearing. I think you will hear a certain 2 GOP representatives who are only worried about who is leaking intelligence rather than what the intelligence says (or literally the exact same thing Trump says).
    •   They could for example sell the information to your insurance company that would promptly adjust your rates if you showed a tendency toward unhealthy behaviors. It doesn't take much imagination.   There is actually a plan to fight this one. The goal is to crowd source some funding, then purchase the data for congressmen and publish them all to the public.
