I did this last month and replaced the old 25" tube TV for a 32" flat-screen; came out really nice. Followed the advice from this site: Living Our Dream: Motor Home Project: Replace Front TV

We switched to Vizio flat screens a couple of years ago, and so far all has been good. I don't think there will be any problems.

Did this mod last year. Took out the 26", installed a 32" LCD. Used the original frame(cut to fit widerTV) a couple aluminum straps (1"X2 1/2") self tapping screws to TV and wood frame, reinstall into cabinet. DONE!!!! (TV was retained in cabinet by frame originally, so why not reuse it?)

We had 2 Vizio's in the bricks and mortar and put one in the bedroom in the MH. Now we are thinking we are going to do some work on the cabinet ours is in in the front and replace it with another Vizio. Can't beat Vizio!! We have a 50" in our bricks/mortar bedroom. Our MH is a Rexhall Rexair and the cabinet is not overhead -- its built like a piece of furniture with a 2-door glass cabinet above where the TV is so we'll have to do some reworking on the spot for the TV.

Finally got the MH home and finished up my trim around the TV. Got it up and working but need to study manual a little better to get the TV to work the way I want it to, if possible. Going to try to post a few PIC's. Jim

Can actually use the passenger seat to watch TV

We can actually use the passenger seat, that has foot rest and recline, to watch TV now that the TV is 3 inches back and 5 inches shorter. Amazing how much more window view there is also. Love it. And we only argued minimally..

Great job Jimmy! We had the same problem but went a little different route. I wish I could have done the cabinet work, it cost me $550!

The head-banger is finally GONE!

Good luck, happy trails, and God bless!

But most of the time when we are at home, that 26" Vizio with front speakers is my laptop monitor.

It is very easy to move between the MH and desktop.

I just finished my project this weekend...

Removed the old 19in and replaced it with a 26in LCD. I used a full motion wall bracket, installed on the passenger side of the opening, this allows us to pull the TV out and to the left if we don't put out the slide.
I got that idea from a TV install video that I found online.

I will have to "finish" the space behind the TV, planning to make some shelves to house the DVD and Sat reciever at some point.

Just returned from a Spring Break trip to Disney. Only went into the parks a few times so there was a lot of time around the Fort. I had replaced a rear TV with a flat screen last year, but have stayed with the front CRT because it still works ok. I have an A/B switch to allow cable or satellite dish to be connected. I have a 3-port Wingard switch to select sources for front and rear TV's, and I have a couple of T's to allow direct input for the rear TV and the old converter for the front. Oh and a separate DVD player. In short, I have a mess of wires in a small compartment, most of which are not labeled. After trying a number of combinations, I could not get the new Disney cable into the front TV. That TV has got to go!!! I have a July trip planned and will not travel with the old CRT again!! I think this week is a good time to remove the old and see how much headbanger cabinet I can get rid of. I can fit the Vizio 29" set in there, but I have to relocate a small overhead light and my rear camera monitor. With minimal carpentry skills and little patience, this will be a challenge. Stay with me....

Reference to above rear TV replacement...

I mounted a plywood board, stained to match the other bedroom cabinetry on the bedroom wall, using several countersunk screws. I installed a fixed mount with a slight downward tilt to secure the TV to the plywood above the window opposite the bed. I used adhesive-backed cable conduit to run the coax and power lines into the SMALL cabinet where the old TV resided. Someday i may put caps over those countersunk screws, and I may also stain or paint the cable runs.
