So I now have my 3rd TV that the plastic case that the mounting screws are attached to has cracked due to road vibrations. Anyone else having issues with this?

Nope, but I don’t have my TV mounted. rofl-1.gif

I just lay it down on my bed every time I start my day/night. Crete doesn’t give us a TV mount 🙄, I have seen some ways to mount it without the wall mount some companies have. But I just haven’t done it.

Any pictures of the TV hanging? I may have suggestions, if I can see it in position.

No, I've removed it and disposed of it. Whatever was attached to the plastic case inside quit working. This was a 32 inch but my 24 inch did the same. I had a 40 inch that the coax cable attachment piece broke out along with the plastic surrounding it. This TV was tilted most if the time which probably contributed to its failure but my 24 inch was evenly straight upright. Surely I can't be the only one having this issue...can I? Lmao. Its an expensive problem. I'm just gonna watch Hulu on my phone I guess.

I'm thinking if it's hanging, you may try to place something under it temporarily while driving to support some of the weight.

I was brainstorming with my dad a couple nights ago and if I decide to put another TV in I may have someone fabricate a foam lined metal cradle that mounts to the bracket and the TV sits down inside of it so it has virtually zero stress on the plastic since its not mounted, just set into the adjustable cradle.

Keep your money and read library books or get audio books. Best sleeping pills are books.
