I removed the TV that came with the coach and replaced it with a flat screen TV. I made a door that was basically a picture frame. I mounted the TV in the frame and then fastened the frame to the wall with hinges and now have another area to store things.

Is the bedroom TV that comes with the coach, secured? Or does it just sit there? I have a loose connection and need to pull it out but I'm not sure what will happen to all the cables in the back, nor am I sure there are no brackets holding the TV in place.

Jerry my TV was wedged in with a piece of carpeted wood that had screws holding it in place. Its tight, remove that wedge and it should slide out. The TV is heavy.

At the risk of sounding out of touch, is your rear TV an LCD or CRT? If CRT there are also screws coming up from the bottom of the cabinet that can be accessed from the drawers below. They go into a chunk of plywood that is, in turn, attached to the bottom of the TV.

If it is an LCD, please be advised of my jealousy and consequential ignorance.

Does anyone know if the front corner TV is difficult to take out? How is it secured in the cabinet and how do I get it out?

I can't speak to the newer models but with the front TV in our '99' it is easier to work from the back using a mirror and snaking your hand to the connections at the back of the TV. You have to remove the metal grill to get to it (or anything else back there).

The TV is secured with screws, not the carpeted 'spacer' bar at the top. Caution: the 'spacer' fell out and hit the LOML pretty hard. There is now a bar of striated Aromatic Cedar across the top that contrasts nicely (smells good too).

So far, both CRT TV units work quite well and I'll not have to replace either any time very soon.

My coach is also a 99.

Do you know if the TV is secured with screws from the bottom or does the upholstered bottom comes off to get to the screws that are holding the TV?

(The Aromatic Cedar is a nice touch but I hope to pass on that option.) Thanks for the warning.

Jim

I don't really know other than I can see the screws through the hole after I remove the grill in the rear.
