Analog TV shroud removal

I have a 2005 Winni Adventurer that I'm wanting to convert the analog TV with a digital. Lots of info on ways to install the new TV, but nothing much on old TV removal.
Specifically, removal of the plastic shroud. Removed the 8 screws around the perimeter, but can't dislodge from under the wood front trim.
Would rather not end up damaging the shroud or trim.
Any guidance is appreciated.

Bill, there's gonna be more screws holding it in. They wouldn't just sit it in there behind the front grill. Check for screws through the bottom, probably with wood plugs to hide the screw heads. Do you see anything around where you removed the trim?

I just removed the bedroom TV from my 2004 Georgetown. "Just" means last night. I think it was easier than the front TV will be since it was not as tight to the shroud. The rear TV was clamped to a removable plat. The 2 screws in front were easy. There were some very long wood screws in the back that came up through the 1/2 shelf but hidden by the ceiling panel of the closet. Fortunately I found that t b e had placed a wood grained tape over the holes to hide them. There were 3 screws but only one actually made contact with the TV plate.

I understand that when I get to the front TV, I will need to access it through the back of the TV cabinet, between it and the windshield. My front trim has screws with caps so that should not be an issue to remove or replace.

There are several treads on this subject in this forum that contain pictures of the removal.

I just took a look at my shroud. I removed it this spring. My MH is a '06 Voyage.

The shroud was held on by 8 vertical screws and 4 horizontal screws, 2 from each side. If my memory is correct, the 4 side screws can be seen by opening the doors on the adjacent cabinets. The Philip head screws had black heads and were not covered by any trim. The screws would be near the face of the cabinet.

Now it is possible I am wrong about the screws. I no longer use my old shroud, but I have kept it. I verified the hole count and placement.

My TV was held in place by frame work coming in from the top and sides. There was a third mounting bracket on the top rear of the TV. Make sure that you have disconnected all the wires to the TV before loosening the mounting hardware. The nose of my MH was up slightly. When the back mounting bracket was removed, the TV started coming out of the hole.

Thumbs up TV shroud removal '05 Winni

Many thanx for the replies to my query, in particular JoeSR.
I was under the weather for a few days, accounting for my delayed acknowledge. However, took another stab at the shroud removal late today and found three screws in cabinets either side of TV and off came shroud with the front wood trim. Hope to dislodge TV tomorrow and go from there.
