New front TV for a Scottsdale

I am finally ready to get a new 32" LCD TV in the front of my 05 Scottsdale to replace the old Sony. I know that many of you have already done this yourselves, but my wife has told me "NO" on me doing the work.

One difference that my MH has is that my electronics cabinet over the drivers seat angles out and is not straight across like on many MH's. So the door would hit the new TV.

Is this something that Newmar will do or is there someone around Nappanee that can do it?

Thanks in advance for any help.

This place in Elkhart can do it.
And others in the area also.

Just got done with mine, previous owner had converted to 26" flat , I HAD to have the 32"HD , sliding wall mount did the trick, TV will slide 8" side to side, to clear the side cabinet you need to open.
Word of warning, chosing the right TV can make a huge difference in the install time,
Front speakers and forward facing controls, re-inforcement on all mount points, location of hook ups and power cord disconect from TV instead of wired in. All add to the complexity/ease of the install. Good luck, enjoy the new TV.

In Elkhart there is

Booth Dinettes - Bradd & Hall

and

Blue Sky RV Co.

We had the blue sky guys redo the insides (flooring, carpeting, couch, & dinette) on our previous coach. They said they can do TV remodeling too. Brad & Hall has videos on the TV stuff and inside remodeling that they have done. We have talked to Brad & Hall about removing the Sony tube type and replacing it with a 32" LCD. They have a lot of ideas and suggestions on how and what to do. Maby come spring................

I'm literally right in the middle of doing ours. Got the old TV out last week, made temporary mounts out of bailing wire and bungee cords since we had reservations for the weekend. Naturally I only put the TV in place when we got there.
Trying to remove the old metal casing, one screw was broken off at the factory and the head is stripped on another. Probably will work on that tomorrow again. Had to mow the yard and cut a tree down today.
I'm using a 32" Samsung LED TV, it almost clears my cabinet doors, will have to cut each of them down about ľ" to clear. Going to use a MOR/Ryde locking mount so I can utilize the storage behind the TV. Will probably rebuild the metal cabinet with plywood and recover it with new vinyl.

Thanks everyone. Skip, I like the idea of the 8" sliding side to side. Sounds like what I need with the angled electronics door.

You might be able to just move the door 1/4 inch in whatever direction you need.

I thought about that too, just got the old metal cabinet out today, need to go get some plywood, vinyl and foam rubber next. I'll get the cabinet rebuilt, then look at the door situation.
I want to be able to access the area behind the new TV to use for storage. The only locking one I've found is the MOR/ryde TV1-021H that lists for $140. I can find lots of non-locking mounts for a lot cheaper. Still thinking about that too!!

By any chance do you have any pics of the TV mount? I'm curioius about the side-to-side movement. I'm going to replace our CRT and would like to get a bigger one than fits between the two side cabinets.

Any chance you got info on this mount? I'm curious how it allows for using the area behind for storage.

I've done several TV updates. I haven't had to remove the "old" metal cabinet on any of them. In fact your better off with the new 32" TV mounted up flush against the old cabinet. No extra cooling requirments. These new LCD's generate a lot of heat.

Just build a support frame out of a 2x4. Mount it in the original TV box. if you want pictures I have them documented here on the forum. I can dig out the links.

Good luck,

Scottsdale,

In the Elkhart/Nappenee area there are numerous options other than Newmar. In addition to those already mentioned there is Carlyle Lehman at Focal Wood Products, Erv Kaufman at Kaufman Custom Kitchens both in Napenee and Precision Painting in Breman. Any of these will do a first class job. I have delt with each and been very satisfied with their performance.
