removing tv

Want to remove front tv on 97 Mountain Aire. Can't figure out how it is held in. Would think there is some way to do it without destroyting framework around front of tv.

Welcome bwhit to Newmar forum & irv2.
You may have wood plugs on finished trim face that if removed will reveal screws behind them.
Or if you look on floor of box holding TV may have a metal plate with screws through plate into floor of box.
The newer TV have screws through side wall cabinets into boards with finished face trim.
Than others have buttons under TV box that if removed will reveal screws.
In Quick Tips there are some LCD installations that may help you also.
Enjoy the forums.

You will probably need a roberson head screw bit as well, its kind of square shaped and size is a number six, Harbor Freight sells an assortment pack 6 Piece Square Drive Bit Set

Hi bwht! Welcome. We are new too. We have a 97' Mountain Aire as well and was thinking the exact the same thing. Recently purchased so we are learning a lot as we go. Couldn't get that tv out either so we have left that for another day. Having water filling issues which takes precedence. If you would be so kind to keep us updated on what you are able to find out that would be greatly appreciated.

Look in the cabinet to the left side and you will find the screw heads, remove all you can then do the right side. The face frame will then come out, and there most likely is a plate on the bottom of the tv holding it in, I cannot say for sure about that as there was no tv in mine, but I could look in a see the mounting blocks for the face frame on each side.

The wood trim (bezel) around the front of the TV is held in with two long screws on each side. You may need to open the cabinet doors on each side of the TV to access the screws and the screws may be hard to see. The wood trim has two arms on each side that extend toward the windshield. Once the screws are removed the wood trim slides forward and once its removed it is easy to see how the TV is mounted.
