TV and Electric fireplace install

Hello, I wanted to share my first renovation project on our 2002 Damon Intruder.

The tube TVs had been replaced with HD TVs by the pervious owner. He did a good job but a dinette booth was added and it blocked the TV at some angles in the coach. My plan was to put a new thinner LED TV where the cabinet is and put something in the hole where the TV was. Had to build a new cabinet door and added hinges then fabricated a pin on the other side to support the TVs weight. I ordered the fireplace off of eBay and fabricated simple box pretty to be mounted in.

At some point I'll make it more pretty by trimming it out. But this is working out for now.

I'm guessing that TV doesn't travel mounted? The fireplace really makes the place look cozy
