Don't have a Newmar but had a hard time finding the screws for ours. They were inside the cabinets on either side of the TV, not easy to spot.

How to remove TV from 2003 NewmarScottsdale

Best to check the Newmar owners forum. Also, at the top of that forum are the "Quick tips & Easy mods" 1 through 3 which has a lot of TV update information. Also, check out OEMY's web site, he shows where the screws were in his, which was the same as mine. Here is a link to my TV update: LED TV Replacement - 2005 Kountry Star

Don't know if your MH is exactly the same as mine since I have a 2003 Kountry Star, but if you're referring to the front tv look below the tv and you'll see two upholstery buttons, these are like boat fasteners in that they pop off to reveal the screws. As for the top fasteners look inside up at the two corners and you'll see screws fastening wood blocks. Remove these and you can remove the frame. If you're not a weight lifter like me have help on hand because the tv weighs a lot and you have to remove the antenna connection and power plug once you have it removed. Big problem is that the new led TV's don't have the same form factor as the old ones. I found a thirty-two incher that I attached to the top of the opening and that still allows the 'flip-up' doors to open (just barely). I sawed off the bottom of the old frame to fit from the bottom of the opening to the bottom of the tv and added a cross piece at the top. Also had to cover over the inside base because of the screws from the backup camera protrude. I'm in the process of fabricating a filler to fit in here using speaker cloth since I use DirectTV and need access to install and remove the receiver and wireless transmitter for the rear tv in this space. Id add pix but my MH is getting brakes right now.
Hope this helps you out.
Keep Smiling,
Bob R
