While watching our 20" RCA TV in the MH bedroom; the picture went to half frame then blank THEN smoke came boiling out from behind the unit. By time I got the unit switched off and unplugged it had filled the bedroom with smoke!! What a nasty buring smell.
We were very very lucky to get the power shutoff before a fire broke out. Before I get into my rant over this RCA failure I just wanted everyone to know that we are thankful to only loose a TV; it could have been tragic.
Now, the unit has a 2-year warranty and we got it 2 1/2 years ago when we purchased out MH. I have never had a TV give up so quickly; I sent RCA an email but I'm not planning on getting any help from them.
My question is, how do I go about replacing this TV with a LCD? Has any one done this without reworking the cabinet? My TV was 20 3/4" Wide and 19 1/2" High.
And for those of you with a RCA unit my model number is: 20F41OT. I've asked RCA about a recall on this model and will keep you posted on their response.
We are extremely thankful no one was injured and that we still have a motorhome.
