our front tv console dropped or pulled away from the ceiling about a inch. i took the tv out and inside is just a 1 x 1 strip of wood going across the one side of the tv cab. to the other, i cannot tell if this is the main support and goes across the entire front of the coach from drivers side to pass. side. there is no alum. beams or nothing other that this wood. it is butted up on each side with styrofoam. called fleetwood and they were no help nor were 3 dealers i went to.
has anyone ever removed their tv and maybe know how it along with the cabinets are attached? and maybe have this same strip of wood. i have pictures if you send me your email i can send them to you. thanks

joelyn,

I have an '05 Bounder with the TV console above the dash between driver/passenger seat. I just remove the old TV and installed a flat panel Sharp. When the old TV was out, I noticed on the front right corner two drywall screws holding that corner up, they were loose by about a 1/4 inch. It looked like that corner had dropped down, you could not tell by looking at it but I tightened them and all is well now. It's hard to tell but it looks like there is a 2 x 4 running the wiidth of the rig and they screwed into that. I suspect that over time (3 years) the weight of the old TV, about 120 lbs, caused the screws to pull down. The new TV weighs in at 35 lbs so I don't think there will be any further problems but I will keep an eye on it.

Paul

Had the same problem with my 37C Southwind and the dealers who tried to repair this under warranty only succeeded in pulling the ceiling(thin plywood veneer)down an inch and three eights to meet the sagged cabinet using an assortment of angle brackets and self threading screws the cabinet was quite a mess when they were finished with it.I had to repair the problem personally.
