Removing front TV from '95 Pace

Hi all,

I've got a '95 Pace Arrow 35W with the TV on a shelf with lift struts and built into the dash. I'd like to yank out the old Panasonic glass screened unit and drop in an LCD that weighs nothing in comparison. There is a black formed plastic band around the TV, apparently to keep it from flying in an accident. I've looked it over and I must either be blind or stupid but I'm not seeing how to disconnect this band in order to lift the television out.

Any ideas?

Most wood facings have wooden plugs that cover the screws. does yours' show to have anything like that?

Mine had a 4" plastic screw on cover that needed to be removed to access the straps on the passenger side in front of dog house.

My bedroom unit has that setup and that makes perfect sense. However, the front TV sits on a dash high shelf between the driver and passenger, right above the doghouse. It list up on hydraulic struts to be high enough for everyone to see.

Wanabee is correct that there is a plastic band around it but unless my eyesight is worse than I thought I can't find the method of attachment.

John,
Sorry, I don't think I made myself clear. At the left side of the passenger floor their was a 4" round hatch cover that unscrewed to access the straps. My coach is a different manufacture, but maybe they used something similar?

I need to get out there in the daylight and take a much closer look. Darn day job gets in the way of the work I really need to get done.

So it's possible the strut lifted shelf has a fastener underneath.
