Smile Screw Locations?

Am Thinking about replacing my T.V.s one in front and bedroom. Where are the screws located that holds the wood frame. I think I have located the ones in the bedroom(under some plugs in the frame) how to get the plugs out without damaging the frame.
Oh yeah, it is an 06 DS.

You can remove the plugs by just prying them out with a sharp knife. They should not be glued in place. It's just a tight fit that holds them there.

I drilled a small pilot hole into the plug, screwed in a small wood screw and then used pliers to pull them out. Obviously, they weren't reusable afterwards but there was no other option.

I think you can get plug to replace the old ones but, frankly, I didn't care.

I was told to call Newmar with your Vin number and they will sell you a bag of the new ones.

I did the same task on my 2007 Dutch Star. Just keep looking. When you find all of them you will do this:
In the bedroom I created a cabinet behind the new tv. Used furniture grade plywood trimmed with the removed framing wood and a piano hinge. A few mods inside and have a perfect place to store my printer, radios, etc (Never an inch goes unused.) Subsequent to taking this picture, I put an additional shelf behind the tv.
