Removed front TV, need your ideas to fill the hole.

Hello friends, We don't want to mount our new TV there at this time, maybe will down the road. You guys got some suggestions on how to use this two feet square hole? Thanks for any suggestions. Click image for larger version

You can always put some nice doors on it and use it for another storage place. Why not put the new TV back in there out of curiosity?

We have a 32 inch led that we were planning to just sit it on the big flat dashboard and then take it in our home when not RVing.

I just took mine out and have the flat screen sitting on the dash. I do have a universal mount to put the new one in but am still considering the options. At the moment, DW covered the hole with curtains she made and held in place with the refrigerator tension bars. Looks super for temporary solution.

We took our TV out along with the big box and put it a cabinet to match the ones on either side.

When we moved the TV I had a cabinet shop cut off the center section to be even with the side cabinets, and put a door on it for storage. Looks great!

You can see the finished product here:

The head-banger is finally GONE!

That looks great. I wasn't smart enough to think of that, and the wounds on the top of my head reinforce that!

As inexpensive as TV's are, I just got a decent flat screen and mounted it on the front of the cabinet instead of moving one around. We did consider putting glass doors on it, and hanging wine glasses, etc.

Here is how ours turned out. Two shelves inside have a bit of a slope to the front to keep items from working toward the doors.
An RV Reno shop in Spokane did the work. I'm a nut and bolt guy, wood is not my thing.

Get rid of it!

They are headbangers which I am sure thousands of owners will attest to.

I removed mine and installed a 32 inch Flat Screen TV slightly recessed with the side cabinets. Then I used a portion of the old box to make a pocket cover for the rear of the TV.

I also installed a couple of puck lights and a dimmer.

I mounted the TV over the hole with a small piece of plywood and piano hinge at the top. Swing the TV up and you have full access for storage. Used a small, brass colored latch to hold the TV at the bottom. Then we traded the whole rig off a week later!

My brother put shelves inside with a hinged door with chalkboard finish so he can write a list of repairs needed on his coach. Looks good!

That's what I did. I mounted a 32" TV on a swing-up door. That "hole" now has 2 shelves with lips on them for storage of DVD's, CD's, satellite mover, etc.
