I have an 05 KS 3910 and the TV is driving me nuts while driving down the road. It is chirping and squeeking. How do you tighten it up? I can't see how the wood frame comes off. Has anyone used a silicone or dry lube for interior squeeks like this?
Thanks
Bill

Bill we have the same year Kountry Star.
On the side of the TV cabinet there are little round plugs pop them off to get to fastners.
Their is really nothing they can do at the factory to completly fix this problem other than replace it with a 4-6 inch deep TV. We have learned to live with it until TV needs to be replaced.
Drove from Florida to Texas only area of road with the noise was about 30 miles of I-10 in Western LA.
The noise isn't as bad [except for above] once we slowed our speed down to the 59-62 mph range on all the other roads.
Amazing how slowing down improves a lot of problems in a Motorhome, less rattling, squeeking, every thing stays in it place, no surprises when you open a cabinet and the best of all a increase in fuel milage.

I fixed it a different way in the '00 KS. I hit a big chuckhole that broke the bottom anchor right off the TV and bounced it on the floor. No more squeek. I replaced it with a flat screen computer monitor.

Bill some times you can reach in the corners of TV box and tighten the screws that hold the TV to the bottom of box with a metal plate.
If you get face plate off box stick some foam strips to the back side of face plate or where you think its rubbing. The plastic will show some wear on surface of TV.

I had a similar problem on my old MH, I took the surround off and anywhere I thought it might be rubbing I padded it heavily with a foam weatherstipping I got from Home Depot. I put it all back together and no more squeaks! It was about to drive me batty until I fixed it.
