I just upgraded out Furrion 39" TV with a TCL 49" 4K Smart TV.
I had to buy a new mounting bracket for it.
Everything bought at Costco with a 5 year warranty.
TV was 43.2 inches wide which is the very max width possible without bumping into pantry.
I have 8 bolts holding on the folding base.
If was to do it all over I would have gone with a different TV at 42" wide.
When I lift the TV up the top corner of TV hits the pantry trim, but it's doable.

I had to replace the 49" TV with a 48" TV because the sides were rubbing against the wall, just a little to tight.
Also the TV is heavier and will not flip out on the backboard, the struts are not strong enough.
I have to have my wife hold the TV up so I can get access to the storage area behind the TV. New TV has many apps and wifi.

How about a big picture so we can actually see it!

The RV is in the shop for repairs, as soon as I get it out and at a RV park tomorrow I will post some pictures.
The 49" Tv was 1/2" too wide, returned it and got a 48" and it fits much better.
The only problem is I can't lift the backboard by myself to gain access to the rear storage area on my 319RLS.
TV is heavier so I need to add stiffer struts on the back.
If I had to do all over a 3rd time, I would have gone with the 43" TV, lighter and small may have not have some of the minor problems I am having. As far as the picture and apps are awesome.

Rather than replacing the struts, and guessing how sturdy they need be, a bit of PVC pipe cut to length, with rubber plugs on each end, stored behind the TV, works quite nicely as a brace.
