I am in the process of changing my two TV's to the thin LCD units. Both of my originals were the old huge units. My front TV sits in a heavy gauge metal frame which is bolted to the cabinets on either side. From all appearances that is what is holding it up. I don't see any other way that it is attached. Has anyone changed a unit like this? If so, would you be kind enough to share with me if anything else is holding the TV up. I believe someone mentioned that there may be brackets on the top of the TV that go across and mount to the top of the cabinets. Any help or suggestions would be very much appreciated. We can eliminate removing the front of the motorhome from some of my helpful friends.

The old picture tubes were filled with helium-- which is what "keeps them up". The brackets are to keep the coach, which of course is not bolted down, from banging against the TV on Pennsylvania potholes and causing damage.

Your helpful friend Norm. Happy to be of assistance.

Norm,

Where the heck have you been? Have you gotten an Alpine yet? This should be a very good time to buy one, although I am sure it is not the best time to be selling property. Dixie and I wish you well.

We have all missed your insightful and thought provoking input to this forum.

Heck, it has been 5 days since Ted posted on this thread .

Maybe Norm and Ted are the same person

Keep hanging around Norm. I like your insight

We live out in our old van. Travel all across this land. Drive until the city lights dissolve into a country sky, me and you - hand in hand.

The reason I did not post anything on this site is the subject did not explain my issue. I created another site referencing how do I get my front TV out other than a blow torch. I have no clue where Norm came from as he has been unheard from for many months. The animal is know starting to look better than Norm, hard to believe when you look at the poor animal that gets feed once a week and that is from scraps that E.Mike sends up from Mexico.

Ted to all!

Ted,

Good thing you didn't have to use a torch. Carol wouldn't have liked the smell of burning wood!!
