TV Removal 1994 Southwind?

I have a 1994 Fleetwood southwind model H32, would like to remove big heavy old Panasonic TV from the front where it rests on top of the dog house. Any suggestions how to do this?

Will it affect the structure of the wood components that are there now or just have an easy slide out of the tv?

Thanks so much,

Chances are you can remove some screws and slide the old monster out without any problem. Ours was held in by a wood frame. The frame was held in with six screws. The screw heads were covered by wood plugs that could be easily pried out. Since we did not want to replace the TV in that spot we made a cover. We found vinyl that matched the dash in a fabric store. We cut a bit of masonite slightly larger than the hole in the frame center. We covered the masonite with batting and wrapped it with the vinyl. We then secured it to the back of the frame which made an attractive padded section that fit right in. I actually cut back the box from the TV also so that it made more room in the cabin, otherwise I would have added hinges and made a cabinet with the space.
A 15yo RV is like a Steam Locomotive. Run time/Maintenance is about 65/35. For every 65 hours in use it needs 35 hours of work.
