If I understand your question, part 1, you want to put a TV mount in the basement? Part 2 would be increased storage. Right?
TV mount is no problem. Increased storage is no problem either. Just keep your weight limitations in check. More storage, more stuff, more weight.

thanks you are correct part 1 and part 2 is this dead space there for a reason my wife seems to think its for air return this is my first camper so im new to all this and this plywood is free standing i would think framing this in would make it more stable .............

DH just built framing for the panels...much better, and we can now securely hang items on them if we choose.

It shouldn't have any effect on warranty. The wall is not load bearing and the addition of a TV mount is a normal modification. There was a man in our club that opened up a huge area behind the wall for more storage.
