Removing TV and VCR to put in new one

We have a Winnebago 2000 Adventurer. We want to remove the VCR as it is obsolete and put in a flat screen TV.
Does anyone know how you can get to the power plug for the VCR? Also we want to take the TV out but do not see how to get into the cabinet where the TV is located. We took off the screws but it would not open up.

Sorry your link doesn't work. How did you get the cabinet to open up? I would like details. I know it can be done I just want to know how?

Welcome to the forum. TV's are installed a little differently. Maybe you could post some pics of yours...

Hi Tycho7.
I had replied earlier however IRV2 intercepted it I was not aware that I could not reply directly to you.

1st I made an error in the link to many "W's" try this one:
http://www.picasaweb.google.com/sight04

Not sure what your coach is like. I replaced ours several years ago.What I remeber is: In each overhead (front left & right) side cabinet there was a bolt that held a metal strap that went over the top of the TV, after removing the strap the TV can be lifted out (be careful very heavy)TV was plugged in the right overhead into the inverter. In my coach I removed the plate (vinyl covered) that goes over the inverter on/off switch & the TV signal switch box. Then I removed the shelf that the Inverer rests on (equipment was secured to shelf with indusrtial velcro). This clearing of the right overhead gives you more room to work. My solution was to reinforce the mounting area & install an "Articulating Wall mount". The mount was putchased on Ebay around $40.00. Again in my coach the VCR/DVD & the TV plugged into the inverter & the inverter plugged into the 110V receptacle that is built into the right overhead cabinet.

Good Luck with your project.
