Replace main TV

The main TV in the Front on my Sea Breeze LX is acting up and I'm afraid It is going to need to be replaced. Was curious as to whether anyone else has replaced on and what kinds of problems were encountered...

Welcome to iRV2.com. We are glad to have you join us here and we look forward to reading of your adventures and experiences. I am sure you will enjoy the website and forums. Good luck and keep us posted.
There are many ways one can replace a TV. Once you have the trim off, you will be able to see how it is secured. Are you going to put a tube type tv or flat panel back in?

Here is the mod I did several years ago. I later removed the front 26" HD TV because it was too small for me. I then added a 32" Sony Bravia. Here is the thread for that.

There are many more updates on this iRV2 forum. Type in "TV upgrades" or such, in the search box at the beginning page--

Good luck-- If you have any questions send me a Private Message (PM)

Hi tuthpick1. We have replaced the CRT in our 2004 Winnebago Sightseer 35N coach with a 32" Best Buy brand LCD TV. If interested photos of that & other projects at: Picasa Web Albums - Terry & Bev + Cookie

Welcome to the forum...
Nothing is impossible to repair on a m/h. patience is the most important part of any modification. i replaced a crt in an '04 georgetown; i just had to keep removing parts until i tipped it out. it was very heavy so have help to remove it. my hardest task was getting it trimmed out have a good looking finished job.
good luck
safe journeys

I replaced the 27" CRT Panasonic with a 32" LCD Sharp in our '05 Bounder. I lucked out, the hole where the CRT was is a perfect match for the larger LCD to fit in. I had to do no trimming or anything, it slid right in. However, I did install a bracket on each side of the hole to prevent the LCD from sliding back. Replaced the bezel and it looks like Fleetwood installed it.

On the other hand, a friend replaced his and there was major cabinet work needed to be done. So I guess each rig is going to be different.

We replaced both TV's in our 99 Tradewinds. There weren't many problems because we also replaced the VCR with DVD's and connected to the TV via HDMI.
The woodworking might be the greatest challenge for the average guy because of lack of tools to do finish cabinet making. But if you can do some woodworking and replace the VCR then it's a fun project.
Here are some pictures of our new TV's.

I took out both front and back tvs. Then I purchased two 32" HD tvs that I could use both in the house and in the MH. They weight about 40# each so they are easy to carry back and forth. They travel on the bed and then we set one up on the front dash and the other one on a shelf in the bedroom. I then had some doors made and installed them over the holes left by the tvs, creating more storage space.

Since you have a National product go to the National forum and search on LCD TV or on Replace TV. There are several postings some with pictures. We were able to replace the front 27 inch RCA TV with a 32 in Sharp which just fit with no cutting of the existing wood trim. All I had to do was fabricate a good solid mount. The hardest part was getting the old RCA out as it was very heavy and required two people.

I changed out my 19" with a 26" LCD HD. I used a double articulated arm. Works great. I finished out the old box and use it for storing DVDs and maps.

Looks GREAT! And what is even better, the DW is happy with it. Whew!!
