Having trouble removing TV from the enclosed compartment.

Unread postby Hfritsche on Wed Oct 01, 2014 5:51 pm

Our TV has stop working and it needs to be replaced. The problem is we cannot figure out how this one has been installed. It appears to be bolted to a board inside the enclosed compartment with L brackets attached to the top of the cabinet to keep it from moving forward. Cannot found a way to even loosen the TV unit so that we can even access the hardware holding the unit secure. Baffled, so any help anyone can share would be appreciated. HF

Can you give us an idea of what type of RV you have. Or even a picture would help.

Thanks

Ron, we have a 2005 Newmar, Dutch Star. This is not the original TV. The opening in the box is probably 28 inches, the former owner replaced it with a 32 inch TV, and that is the problem. Not able to figure out how to remove it, I may just have to take it in to the professionals.

Is the TV in the front?

Ours has a trim around it the has plugs that cover the screws to remove the trim. The little covers come off with a very fine screwdriver and they just pop off.

Once the trim is removed we can access the mounting brackets for the TV.

Unless the previous owner did something really radical?

Good luck.
