Remove panel behind outside TV

I have a 2010 Newmar Essex and I want to know if anyone knows how to remove the panel behind outside TV. My full sensor on my Thetford toilet failed and my dealer told me I had to access through the outside entertainment compartment. I can see the black tank through the hole where the stereo is mounted in but I have removed the TV and all the screws that I can see on the front side of the panel, but the panel will not budge.
Thanks for your help
Tom

Tom.....Here is a photo of the "Full Tank" sensor on my Dutch Star with the DOmetic toilets and full sensor. Mine quit working. I left the tank full for a couple of days so that it would soak, sink it's a mechanical sensor (float). I started to unscrew mine (about half a turn) and then decided to check it, it was working. I tightened it back up and it's been fine. Once I realized what it was and where it was, I can reach over the pegboard wall and rap it if needed.

The small white cap with two wires in the center of the photo is the full sensor on my coach. Not sure if it's the same as yours.

Post a pic so we can see the panel. I can tell you how the panel in an '05 Essex comes out but yours may be different.

ID:	200444begins trying to wiggle that back panel out. I finally cut 1/4 off 2 sides. I put a larger tv in and only left the stereo mounting part in. I also put some removable screen in for ventilation and I can get at the overflow tube of water tank. Good luck

Here is what the sensors look like on my 2011 MADP. Like what next said it is a tight fit lots of wiggling and bending the board and cussing and pray nothing breaks !! Trim sides before reinstalling.
Good Luck
JP

On our '05 you need to remove the speakers so you can access screws that go thru a wood strip on each back edge.

So do the screws go through the wood block into the side walls?

On mine, yes.

On mine, I did not replace those screws ... I used small L-brackets on the front side.

BTW, on mine, I had a 120vac duplex outlet behind the panel ... I relocated that to the TV side of the panel.
