I'm pretty sure only the Dallas Cowboys have a 43' unit but.....

They sell HDMI extension cables if your only problem is making the connection easier.

If you posted pictures you might get a few more people with ideas or experience.

Good luck!

Hello JMSummers,
I have a 2010 Newmar Dutch Aire 4317. I had the same problem. In very front of the cabinet where the TV is, there are two louvered wooden grills. These are held on with silicon calk. You need to carefully run a knife along the inside of the edge on each of these to remove them. As in your case, you most likely have a crappy JAMCO unit. I junked this and installed an up to date Yamaha unit that had 5 HDMI inputs and 2 outputs. I ran the output of the Yamaha to one of the HDMI inputs on the TV - in my case, a Samsung 32 inch. Since the TV did not have a two way audio connection, I used the analog (i.e. RCA jacks) from the output of the TV to the auxiliary input of the Yamaha. Watching TV, I had a full 5 point stereo sound form the Yamaha. I used my laptop connected (it has a HDMI ouput) to the Yamaha via a long HDMI cable for TV and smart TV capabilities. The nice thing about the Yamaha with multiple HDMI connectors on the back, you can hook up most electroncs to it including ROKU, FireTV, etc.

Best Regards
Dutch Master

Yup need to know what model you have, but mine , like okc , is overhead mount . Access is via the 2 wooden vents that face the windshield. Mine was bolted into a steel bracket. Im currently modifying and reinstalling with a 40" .

Our 2009 Dutch Star behind the shower

The cabinet above the TV has a stapled bottom

Pull the bottom out of the cabinet and look inside and remove the two bolts
They are about 8" long

Took me two months to get this information between the dealer and Newmar

Dutch Master, can you tell me what you mean by a "yamaha unit"? I also have the the 2 vents which I now know how to remove, thanks. I would like access to the rear of the TV to make motivations.

Hello JimmyHaggis,
Regarding the "Yamaha Unit" - This is a 6.1 Surround Sound Stereo Receiver. By removing the two vents, you can gain access to the rear panel connections of the TV. Two things are necessary:
1. HDMI Cable - This will connect the output HDMI connector on the stereo unit to the HDMI input of the TV.
2. Existing Analog Sound Cable - This is the cable with the RCA connectors (i.e. round). I used this to connect the output of the TV to the input of the stereo unit. Therefore, when I used the TV in "normal mode" - I went into the setup of the TV to select audio output to external only. That way I had full surround sound of the TV in the coach.
In cases where you are using a Blue Ray player, Fire Stick, Roku, etc - You will select the appropriate HDMI connections thru the stereo menu or push button on the front panel. The TV will display the picture, while the stereo unit will push the sound out.

Best Regards
Dutch Master

Thanks Dutch Master, I have a older Sony receiver, 2011 Dutch Star, and want to connect an optical cable to our yamaha soundbar and connect our Roku. I wondered how those vents came off, no screws. The cabinet that contains all the stereo equipment gets fairly warm, even screws up the satellite receiver.
