Removing rear TV 2003 DS??

Wondering how the TV comes out. I see 4 sealed holes in the outside frame - do I have to drill them out to get at the screws?

Sorry all the pictures got rotated.

.



Or in the the back I notice that the TV is on a platoform screwed into the base of the cabinet by 4 screws plus a strap. If I take them out will that let the whole thing slide forward? (OTOH, I don't see how I can reach the far two screws from the back).




thanks

Chris

Those are wooden plugs, you can carefully pry them out to get access to the screws.

Chris,

Like GoneRVn said pry the plugs out to access the screws. Take the front frame off and release the strap in the back of the tv and the tv will slide out. If I remember correctly that piece of wood that's screwed down under the tv was just used as a spacer to get the tv the correct height.

Changed mine out on my 2003 DS a couple years ago. One hint on replacement is to pay attention to location of speakers. Many of the new flat screen tv's the speakers are in the back and not such a good choice. I found a tv at Best Buy with speakers in the front that fit.

Jeff

There should be a hole in the closet next to your tv that you can reach in and unscrew the two screws.

For my Newmar, which looks like yours, we had to remove the wooden plugs that are over the screws.

Ok, thanks all.
I was hoping not to mark up the trim too much in case a new TV doesn't cover it. I left the trim in place on the front TV and the TV looks good covering any gaps.

Going on our first trip of the season tomorrow, just a short hop across the border to Robert Moses Park NY (upstate) for a few days.
Will probably have a shot at it when I have nothing to do. Also cheaper for me to buy the mounting hardware and new TV in the US than in Canada.

Thanks

Chris

I tried using the wall mount bracket. I felt it looked kind of hoaky so I had a cabinet shop mout my Samsung into a door using a Piano Hinge. Looks more like it belongs and gives us more storage in behind.

Here is the door open to give you an idea of how it is mounted. See the four screws in the back.

Yep, remove the plugs to access the screws. Did that in our '02 DSDP too.
