Can't hear the TV over the TV...

Upgraded from the gas Pace Arrow to an 04 Discovery DP, wow what a difference.
In the older gas MH, I upgraded the old tube TVs to flatscreens before I even took a trip. However in the DP we took a little beach visit with it to try it out.
I cannot believe the noise and squeaks from the front mounted TV and it's not the mounts or brackets. It's the plastic and parts inside the TV, it appears that the thing is secured with brackets like a battery in a GM car. WOW what a noisy boat anchor. As soon as we stopped I fired up the smartphone and ordered a 32" Toshiba with free shipping.
I'm not easily deterred by road noise, but jeez people this was unbelieveable. Anyone else experience this? I can't believe the previous owner dealt with that ear piercing squeak/rattle for 30,000 miles!

Like my mom always did when she heard a noise in the car, she "fixed" it by turning the radio up.

Having worked as a TV tech for many years, I'm surprised you had this problem. Only thing I can think of that might cause that is it was perhaps repaired at one time and the tech that worked on it didn't tighten all the case screws or left a couple out.

Perhaps a 1/2" foam sheet under it would cure the issue...if it's not the case screws.

What brand was/is it?
'02 Winnebago Journey DL, DSDP, 36' of fun.
