A moisture check also might be in order. My RCA has been acting strangely for a year during rain/Tstorms/lightning. It switches channels & generally is inop. It's OK after the storm passes. I suspected an electric anomaly and/or moisture. Removed the surrounding closeout and out POURED water! No wonder there were problems! When dry, it works fine.

On the roof I found problems with sealant on the radio antenna & a few other suspects. Also re-sealed one fwd cap marker light and tightened screws on the others. Since then, had one moderate rain w/no leaks. Need a frog-strangler to check for sure.

This is a follow-up regarding the TV replacement:

We armed ourselves with the general measurements of the original OEM TV and set out to find an LCD TV with digital tuner. If you want to know what we found, send me an e-mail and I'll give you the full particulars. Anyhow, we found one which fit very nicely; only about a half-inch gap on the sides and about 3/4 inch at the top. A 26 inch diagonal 16:9 aspect ratio (720i) screen. Took the pedestal off and lined velcro strips along the top and bottom, placing the mating strip of velcro on the floor of the TV cabinet and also on the moveable steel frame at the top. We can now easily bring the TV into the house and put it back into the motorhome when we travel. The TV makes a nice addition to our den at home. Another good reason to bring it in, is that the TV manufacturer states that the storage temperature should not exceed 110 degrees nor fall below 32 degrees. Who would want a frozen liquid crystal display? I have heard that even with slow warm-up the color is not ever the same.

The wood frame (bezel) originally was held in place with 4 wood screws. Realizing that repeated insertions of the screws would soon cause the screw holes to deteriorate, I replaced them with thumb screws with screw anchors driven in place inboard of the bezel. That makes it easier to take out or put in.

Thanks for reading.
