Flip Down Install

Anyone ever installed their own flip down? I'm not too worried about the wiring aspects of this, just looking into the mounting aspect of it.

Its real easy. Plus the power and ground you need are right there from the dome light. When I installed mine I fabbed up a bracket that I mounted to the dome light bracket. Once you get the headliner down you will see what I am talking about. Been installed for around 7 years with no issues at all.

How big is your tv? I figured there may be a little bit more involved for a larger tv?

I wired mine to my domelight and it ended up killing my battery even when the was off so make sure you wire in a switch to the main power wire going into your TV

Don't think that's the issue. It still does it with doors open or closed... Maybe the whole interior lighting system is a circuit and when I took down the dome light I jacked it up...
