I have a 2003 Winnebago Journey and want to replace the front TV. Can someone tell me how to get the wood frame (bezel) on the front of the TV removed to get to the old TV??

Thanks, Rob

If there are no visible screws, it was probably installed with an air nail gun. Probably just pry it off.

Rob,

There has been some really extensive posts in the MH forum complete with pictures. Do a search in the MH forum for TV replacement. More information than you can stand...

Oh, and welcome to the site!

Hi from tn. WELCOME to the best RV forum. you'll find enough info to keep you busy for years to come. i have an '04 georgetown and have replaced the front tv / a sanyo hd. if you see any wooden buttons on the facing- gently pry them out. my facing had 4 screws that were covered that way. just keep looking at how it's attached and have plenty of patience---also help to get it down out of the cabinet.
good luck-post often & let us all know how you get along with the project.
AGAIN WELCOME...

You might want to go over to the Winnebago owners forum and do a search. There have been a couple of threads about TV removal in Journeys in the last year or so.

We had a 2003 Itasca Suncruiser and the wood bezel was held in by screws. It wasn't stapled so don't pry on it or stuff will break.

I don't recall exactly where they were any more but I "think" they came in from the bottom. On our Allegro Busses they came in from the side cabinets.

My front tv bezel was held on with heavy duty velcro....a couple short strips on each side. If so, you should be able to see a small gap looking at the side.

Check inside the cabinets on each side of the TV, my 2004 Journey has the screws holding the front frame for the TV inside these cabinets. Good Luck on your search. Indiana Journey

Thanks for all the info. There were screws on each side of the TV holding the front frame. Then I had to pry out the little plastic covers around the bottom cover which uncovered screws. After removing these screws, the front frame and plastic bottom cover come off all as one piece when pulling outward.

Now to figure out how to add a new flatscreen TV after finishing up my current project of replacing the carpeting with luxury vinyl flooring.

Thanks again for the help.
