2001 4095 Mountain Aire TV & Android upgrades

This spartan chassis 2001 4095 Mountain Aire is new to me, 70k miles, for the most part well cared for 1 owner, I have removed the front center TV mount and in the process of shorting it to 14 1/2" tall and 15" deep, making it flush with the backs of the adjoining cabinets, and close to even with the bottom of both. Making the front square vs the nice factory curves, building a 7" wide and 4" deep upside down U in the bottom that will house a sliding flip down flat screen tv mount. (32" tv for now) for tv use it will slide to the rear of the coach and flip up to be 1" off the ceiling and push back where the back of the TV is flush with the cabinets. the bottom of the tv will be about 7" below the bottom of the cabinets. when flipped flat the top edge will be 1.5" forward of the cabinet faces, I have cut down the original metal "can" and will reweld the flanges and tabs, and recover in the original material or I have some leather hides that are about spot on for the color, this cutdown will allow me like others have done the opportunity to mount an electric front blackout blind. I will end up with a 9" full wide storage on top of the U and small storage on each side of the U... I have not addressed the doors for this... one door with a U cutout bottom or a top and bottom flip up door.
MY other upgrade is a 10.1" android single din radio/gps/backup touch screen to replace the 7" oem screen, the unit i got has Tire pressure monitors for up to 10 tires so the coach and toad, it also has split screen so i can have gps and rear camera at the same time, also has blue tooth and Mirroring so i can see the same display on the TVs or my Iphone and I got the wireless steering wheel controls with it also... I think it will be a huge upgrade. fun simple projects.

I would like to know- I took all the screws I could find in our 2001DS 4095 to remove the TV cabinet with out success. After I removed all the screws I could find the TV box was still firmly attached. There must be some screws hidden somewhere that I did not find. Guess I will have to try again.



I ended up building a frame inside the box to hold a flat TV. It works but would love to get rid of the big box.

I will post pictures ... waiting on a couple parts to confirm my measurements before i weld (you could use pop rivets or use self drilling screws). so far the only tools needed screw driver, 4" grinder with a metal cut off wheel, skill saw, plyers tape measure

there are many screws.. I think 8-10 going up into the ceiling, and about the same # into each side into the adjoining cabinets without a good light hard to find them all... the last 2 i found were very high up in the upper rear corners.. even after all screws were removed the vinyl covered sides seems to stick to each other pretty good... it was an honest 20 min job to get it down and out... better have a cordless screw gun with the right sq tip bit... the screws into the roof are 3" long... and the ones into the adjoining face frames are screwed into hardwood...... once i figure out how to post pictures here I will

finally got my TV flat fold down mount built and installed... don't try to do this alone... but it worked out... and i think it looks pretty nice, I used what i had and built it from a few measurements and off the old metal can/box i removed and cut down... i did weld it up but self drill screws would have been fine... i'm going to try to post pictures but it did not work last time i tried

you can see from the pic how much i cut off the original box 3 min with a 4" cut off wheel... I also cut off the L bottom and reused it, made the back solid... the top is still open tried to reuse the same mount holes... reused the foam pad, but had the material in the shop from an old project a couple shades lighter but it looks fine... i have about 8hrs in it but it was DOS (design on site) so i built it on the fly...
