I have 2004 Holiday Rambler. I have removed the old tv but I am having a problem with the old metal frame. The metal frame has a lip which is wrapped around some steel tubing I can not figure out how to get it over the tubing. Anyone run into this problem ?

This is the front if you look at the top you can see the steel tubing the frame wraps around the top.






This is the back you can see the two pieces of steel tubing welded together and on the top is the frame. I have tried to push the ceiling up to see if I can lift it over the tubing but it did not work. The frame wraps around the tubing at the back about 1/4 of an inch.

I know we had some sort of frame around our old TV...I am not sure if it was like this though.

Anyone out there have some answers?

The solution will not be easy. The frame is welded in place when the coach frame is built. You will need to find the prints that show the structural make up and just where you can cut the welds in order to remove the frame.

Are you trying to install a new tv or a flat panel tv? Let us know, might be able to suggest something to help you.

Looking at your picture, it appears they tack welded the sheetmetal together in place. What appear to be sheet metal screws run along the top attaching the frame to the structural steel. To remove the sheet metal looks like a job for my favorite tool.!! The infamous sawzall
