Help with '09 or '10 King Aire driver console

Anyone out there with an '09 or '10 KGDB? I need some photos of the internals of the right side driver's console. Specifically, what's behind the dash panel that contains the Kenwood nav/audio unit and the secondary LCD panel next to it.

Background: I have the '08 KGDB. It has two Sony LCD panels, and remotely mounted Garmin GPS, and a standard Sony car audio head unit. I'm going to replace the Sony audio unit and the Garmin Nav system with a Kenwood head unit like the '09 and '10 models have. I've already purchased the dash panel from Newmar parts, and it's a direct replacement for the '08 one. The problem is, I don't know how the Kenwood unit is supported in the '09 and '10 models. I thought the dash panel would do it, but I don't think it's sturdy enough. I figure there must be some other support structure back there, but I'm not sure. The '08 didn't need any, because the little Sony LCD panels are pretty light.

Anyone got an '09 or '10 and willing to open that panel up and take some pictures?

Thanks!

joe

For a quick answer most radios small or large have a ground lug on rear
of it that would have a ground strap ribbon screwed to dash under roofing or down to framing behind dash for support.

Yeah, that's what I'm figuring, but it would sure be nice to have a photo of how Newmar did it.
