We have been working on cutting down the cabinet. Shortened the cabinet 5 inches and narrowed it 3 inches. I think being higher and closer to the cabinets it should cause less head knocking. Here are a couple PIC's that Kate took while we were working on the cabinet. Jay it is warm as I have it in heated storage this year. Doing all the remodel on the cabinet in my shop. Jim

Got some more PIC's to post wish me luck. The one is the old TV when I took it out, wow what a heavy clunk. The new one only weights about 4 or 5 pounds if that. Here are the PIC.s I hope. Jim

Hi Jim it sure is going to look great when it is done. I have a question for all you guys. I have a Holiday Rambler with the old style television also but it is built into the dash itself. It is a 97 38' Endeavor LE. I want to replace with a flat screen myself,but I was curious if anybody else has had to replace theirs yet. The tv works fine but it just seems like a ton of weight on the dash. Thanks and good luck to all.

Plan on putting all back in the MH today.It has taken a while but weekends are busy now as Granddaughters are playing basketball and Grandpa has to watch. I am posting a PIC of my BB players and one of the test install of the TV into the cabinet once we got it re-sized. Oh and yes the girls are twins and make Grandpa proud. Jim

Here are some more PIC's, having trouble with how my PIC's post and don't know why.so look at what you cansee. Jim

try a heat gun or hair dryer on the roof, it might help lower those old impressions.

The 29" Vizio you have actually weighs in at 13.32 Lbs without the stand.

Replacing TV with flat screen

We have just recently purchased our first RV and it is used. Unfortunatly it is a little chilly here in Canada -20C/-4F so we will wait till spring to replace TV. Just wondering if there are any problems putting in a flat sceen with the vibration of the RV as will as running it on the generator or inverter.

I replaced the rear TV with a flat screen last summer and have had no problems. I have not run it with the genny or the inverter but imagine it would work fine.

We installed a Samsung 26" flat screen up front. Mounted the TV to a piece plywood on sliders so that we can lower the tv to watch and raise to travel. The DVD and sound system sit in the area left vacant by the origonal tv right behind the flat screen tv.

MaGoogle thanks for the tip, I was wondering how to make that crease go away. I'll try that and see if It works. I think I'm going to finish this job in spring when I have it in the yard that way I don't have to make so many trips back and forth. Jim

Triker56 I didn't think it weighed that much, I guess after getting the old one out I was pumped up and it didn't seem to heavy. Jim
