2004 Dutchstar 3812 TV removal

Anyone know how to remove the front tv from a 2004 Dutchstar (Model DSDP3812). I have contacted Newmar and asked with no success. They said I should "probably" remove two screws from bottom of cabinet and "probably" a couple of screws from the side of the cabinet in the frame. Removed the two bottom screws and couldn't find any side screws long enough to go through the frame. TV still solid as a rock, can't move in any direction. Looks like it is attached at the top but tell for sure since the top gap is only about 1/8th-3/16" wide.

Any suggestions would help.
Thanks

In QT's # 3 there are TV to LCD conversions with pictures and different TV removals that may help.
Here are some pictures from one of them " TV TO LCD CONVERSIONS" section.

Since I did not plan on reusing the old CRT, I took out my Sawsall and cut the screws off. Even after cutting them off and getting the old TV out I was not sure how they did it the first place.

In my 2003 there were the two screws in the bottom and one screw on each side that went in throught the cabinet on each side. The side screws were sunk in below the surface and I had to look a little to find them. Then you can pull the wood trim straight off from around the TV. Had to work at the trim some as it was a tight fit with wood tabs that went back inside by the TV. Then as I recall there we a couple screws at the top that became accessable once the wood trim was off.

Thank for the info

Thanks for the replies.
AZDave I will look at my coach again. There were two screws (under snap-caps) on the bottom and I found one sceew on the right side (looking at the TV). I took it out but it didn't seem long enough to go into the TV. It probably went into the face frame tabs you are talking about. Now I will have to find the screw on the left side. Hard to see in there since the left side cabinet is at a angle.
Will let you know.
Thanks again,

2004 Dutchstar 3812 TV removal

On my 2002 Mountain aire the 2 screws in the bottom went into blocking that extended from the face trim.
Once these were removed you pull the bottom of the trim out then the trim will pull down from 2 pins that go towards ceiling.
Not sure if the dutchstar is the same. Wish I took pictures as it was not what I expected once I got the trim off.

THANKS!! Your suggestions and comments did the trick. Especially the pictures found in the link provided by "007". (Here are some pictures from one of them " TV TO LCD CONVERSIONS" section.) One of my side screws was discovered by feel only as it was around the corner in the driver's side cabinet. Side screws did not have to be totally removed. Only backed out enough to clear the inside tabs.
Again, thanks to a great group and a fabulous blog site. Lots of knowledge out there.
