Have never seen a housing kit

I'm fairly new to RV's with amenities such as TV's, but I also looked into changing out the TV in my rig after I got it. I've not found anything like you described. Based on what I've seen in these forums, you're probably looking at some kind of DIY retrofit situation.

Good luck and post pictures if you go through with it as I plan to do mine in the spring!

I changed to a flat screen HDTV from an analog boat anchor. I removed the old TV and placed a 5/8" piece of plywood in the opening, screwed into the existing hidden metal angle iron analog TV frame I found there. I cut a couple of 3" holes in the plywood to access wiring from behind, through bolted a TV mount, painted the plywood black, and it looks good. I did the same with the bedroom TV, a piece of plywood in the analog opening, and it also worked out well.

We have done the same thing both front and rear. After removing the old TV you will see a strong framework that you can use to fasten a good stout piece of plywood to.

Then I purchased swing out TV brackets online and mounted them to the plywood. Then the TVs to the swing out arms. Now the TVs can be swung out and positioned wherever I please.

Behind the TVs I use for storage of misc. movies, ect.

Also did the same with both front and rear TV's. You can go a step further and trim the opening with matching wood. I put in an L shaped retainer under the front TV using a sliding bracket that allows me to secure the TV when traveling. Probably overkill, but gives me peace of mind that the movable mount won't swing out while we are on the road.

Good idea to have an extra set of hands when removing the front TV. They are heavy and a little hard to handle given the size.

Not a hard project, go for it!

There is a good post in the National RV owners forum regarding this. Also with pictures of what was done. Go to: Can't hook up to cable
10-11-14 , Heading is "Can't hook up cable"
If you run into problems, you can PM (private email) folks who have done what you are trying to do and get help. As 'JIM' says in his post, "After all, we are put on this earth to help each other". Advice from Jim for the Men
