Question TV removal.

Anybody know how to remove the shroud surrounding the front tv on a 1999 Rexhall, Rexair?

Can you post a photo ?
On my Bounder , there were L shaped metal brackets inside the frame that had to be unscrewed.

2 problems. . I am a computer idiot, I don't know how to post pictures to this website. . I cant get to the frame, the shroud covers the whole thing. I looked in the side cabinets for some screws there and found nothing. I think my best bet is to call Rexhall. I really appreciate your help.

Mick, Not familiar with the Rexhall but most overhead TVs have raised dowels/bungs that cover the frame's screws. With a sharp chisel or knife, these bungs can be lifted from their holes exposing the installation screws allowing the frame to be removed. After the TV's frame is removed, there are usually some sort of anchor brackets that keep the TV from shifting inside the cabinet. Get some help when removing the TV, those older things are heavy and bulky to handle. Good luck.

Just a word of caution, when I removed my front TV it felt on me as I removed the last screw, it was held with 4 screws from the back. I was stuck there with a TV on my back, alone. Fortunatly the TV cable was holding it a little. I managed to turn around and grab it. But it was a heavy beast. Just be sure there is someone else to help you, they must weight 100 pounds.

Try an air chisel, then build a new cabinet.

I have a 2001 rexhall Aerbus and changed out the old tv's a few months ago. If there are vinyl wraps around the box with some buttons, unsnap the buttons and unscrew the vinyl covers. From there you will see what other wood screws need to be removed. They built them well, I had two blind screws coming up into the old tv's plastic.. Just take it slow.

Best idea I've heard yet. I have the 4 screws removed from the frame and it is still as solid as it was before removal. I looked into the adjacent cabinets and found NOTHING. Rexhall has me stumped on this one. I will have to call them after the holidays. Thanks for the replies.

Mine was held on with staples. Mounted the new flat screen on to the frame and it pulled the frame off while traveling.

Not familiar with Rexall construction but most cabinets that I've seen in RV's use the blind screw construction similar to what the Kreg is. Most screws go through the back.

I did a slight modification to my TV cabinet in my Monaco but decided not to tear it all the way down but instead use it as storage. I mounted the TV on a wall mount swing away system so that I have access to the cabinet.

A word of caution, newer flat screen TV's are very light but as a consequence there is essentially no structure to the mount. One of the TV's I mounted, overtime, had failed the back mounting. I had to reinforce so that it didn't completely fall off. The 2nd TV I mounted I also have secondary support so that when traveling there is no weight on the back mount.

Good Luck
