I own a manufactured home. The wall I am going to mount my TV on is on a marriage wall (the part where the home is joined together). I looked online and found that the wall is 1/2" sheet rock glued to 1/2" plywood and nailed to studs 24" on center. I checked the wall and this is true.

In an effort to best center the mount and tv on the wall I was planning on hitting 1 stud with 2 lag bolts (1 top 1 bottom) and add about 6 other bolts throughout the mount into the plywood. My TV is a 50" Samsung plasma and I think it weighs about 100lbs. Would you feel comfortable hanging your tv this way or would you off set the mount so you hit that other stud with 2 lag bolts also?

would agree on working with the studs if possible,, many of the mounting brackets offer some horizontal positioning form side to side to help wall center location,, if it is a close wall mount most all the weight will be a shear load on the bolts and little torque or twist to bow the wall out,,
