You only need to remove the plastic 'door' under the TV. There are screws holding the TV from the side and there are screws into the motorhome steel frame above. Be sure to have someone strong help you remove the TV - the steel and the tv combined must have weighed 90 lbs! 32" LED TV is the way to go.

I beleive the tv mount are about the same in these models and years. On mine there are two scews on each side inside the cabinet frame on each side(there may be plugs in the holes) and one in the center of the top. Remove the sylicon caulking from each side and these scews and the surround will come off. With this removed you will see the bolt on the bottom plate. Remove the two closest to you on each side and loosen the other two. Remove the two scews that hold the TV to the metal cabinet(one on each side) and with a lot of help the front of the TV will drop down and with a little wiggling it will come out. There were six men there when I took mine out 2 to take it out handing it too 2 that carried it to the door and 2 outside to set it on the ground. 94lbs! Good luck it can be done.

No the scews are in the sides. Open the doors on each side of the TV and you should see Two holes or wooden plugs on the side going to the TV. The other scew is in the middle of the front of the TV going into the sealing. Thats five total screws.

You need to remove the wood fascia frame around the front of the TV first. Those screws are accessed from the side cabinets. There are usually hole plugs over the screw heads. Like the above post says, you also need to scrape the putty from the side seams. There may be a screw at the top going into the ceiling.
The plastic panel underneath snaps out. Work it carefully to avoid bending or breaking anything.
Once you get all the above off, you will see the steel cage frame that holds the TV. From underneath, you can reach up the back of the TV to unscrew the antenna lead. Unplug the power plug from a socket in the right overhead cabinet and push it back through the hole and then pull from underneath to get the power cord clear.
There are three bolts on each bottom side of the cage frame. Loosen them all. I removed the front two so the TV would hinge down to its front. Here is where you enlist extra muscle. The TV needs to be lifted up from the bottom tray because there is a raised section on the tray that keeps the TV in place. I think it weighs north of 100 pounds if it is the big cubic RCA model. (I hired two strong guys who lifted mine out and hauled it away for $20.)

Coulter6, has posted some excellent pics of his TV replacement, give it a look see at.

Front LCD TV Install in a 2005 Sea Breeze 8321LX

I'm about 80% done with my replacement on my 2005 Dolphin, my coach is parked 18 miles away from home so it's taking me a lot longer than I had imagined. I will post photos when I finish it.

Good luck and enjoy yourself doing the change over.

One more thing. On my 04 see Breeze. After removing the wood trim. their were two screws near the top of the metal surround on the right and left side going through into a bracket. the bracket goes across the top of the TV and is screwed into the top of the TV. I did not know until we had the bottom fully loose and the TV would not come out. best of luck, it will be worth it
