I have a Vectra 40FD with the TV in the Cabinet. Open the cabinet under the TV, Look up you should see some bolts that hold down the strap over the TV. Once you remove these bolts the TV should come out. You may have to carefully remove some molding, Good Luck PS: I did this when I changed out the old Sony and put in a New HD Flat screen.

Mine was sitting on a thick black foam pad and was stuck. I had to pull pretty hard until it came loose.

Somewhere I saw a TV upgrade into a cabinet like ours, where he made a drawer that he attached the Lcd to. He had a place to store cd's dvd's or what ever. I am interested in your project, been thinking about upgrading for some time. Please keep posting with pics if possible. My tv appears to be held buy the bolts under it. If it's held like the rear tv you also will find some more screws under the trim on top of the tv. I replaced the bedroom tv last summer so can't remember exactly, but Winnebago intended for it not to move!! (Thats an understatement)

You and I probably have all the same TV set ups. We are interested in doing the front TV first. When you took out the back CRT, did you find any kind of adhesive holding it in place or was it held in place by hardware only? I hope to get to the front soon and will keep you posted on what I find. I hope it doesn't have some kind of adhesive pad. LOL

I don't remember adhesive but remember the top molding needed to come off to access more screws holding the tv. When all said and done their was a metal bracket holding it. Wish I could remember exact, but been a year ago. That being said the electronics that are above the set are held with velcro, so that may be a posibility?
The molding came of fairly easy. I was able to replace finding the same nail holes and a very small dab of wood glue.

Well I just replaced my CRT TV in a corner cabinet with a fireplace under it. Removed (temporally) the fireplace. Wiggled in the back corner and there are bolts on the back AND front of the TV that had to be removed. Then to reach one of the bolts I had to also undo a swing out table to reach one of the TV bolts. Then there was a 1 1/2 inch steel strap stuck on to the front of the TV with really strong tape. Once all the bolts and strap was off the TV slid out of the cabinet. Then I held the TV as I had the DW remove all the rear plugs and wires so I could set the TV on the floor.

If your TV is not moving you do not have all the bolts out or there is some tape still sticking on the TV. Check again.

I chose to get a Samsung 32". This is not the SmartTV model, just a regular 720i, no fancy stuff. I know there are several ideas on "how" to do this install. I chose to build a sliding shelf with cubby holders in the back, for DVD's and stuff. An I can also close the cabinet side "sliding" doors to hide\cover the TV. Had to trim a tiny 1/8" area of plastic trim off the TV corners to get the doors to close (because of the hinges), but really have to "look" closely to see this trim cut an the TV is in no way effected by the plastic trim cut. Here is 2 pictures of my finished install:

My front CRT TV used a bolt operated winch, the bolt was behind a cover on top of the side cabinet. Removed the padded panel under the TV and cranked the bolt, lowering the TV.
