Is there a picture on the wall in the 1/2 bath? If so, see what's behind it.

I agree with Deep Water D as it pertains to the access behind the picture in the bathroom. That is confirmed in the thread linked below (go down to mojoracing's post --or HERE-- as his signature denotes a 2014 Bounder 34k.

He indicates that you can access the ports in the back of the TV this way but I'm not sure if you want to remove the TV entirely if it can be done wholly from that cut-out in the bathroom or not. You may have to follow what RRR did in that thread ...or THIS post

Mojo has a 35K. RRR has a 34T
My '16 35K is simply mounted with a hinge. Pull the right side of the tv and it hinges open.

TV above Fireplace

Hello, how do I remove the TV above the fireplace on the 2013 Fleetwood, Bounder 35K? Previous owner had a fair sound system. However, he took the amplifier and didn't leave instructions on his wiring... Dah!
I need to remove the TV. Either, to replace it with a SmartTV with Chromecast, etc.
I've already looked behind wall with the pictures/glass in the bathroom, no dice. There is NO access to the tv. I've inspected every inch of the outside panel and below within the black mesh, no access!
The only option I believe I have is to remove the frame and see if there are screws and so on to remove tv. What a pain!Click image for larger version

Eventhough, I have an antenna for dish. I use my Chromecast and watch Netflix, Hulu, etc.
I can use your advise and assistance. Thanks for those of you who answer.

Sorry for the side photo... Just turn your head a bit. :~)>

Hmm, I have always heard that the 35K had a mirror or picture on wall behind the TV. They likely forgot to cut the hole.

My model has the shower right behind th TV so no picture. I got a clue from the dealer and removed mine so maybe this will help.

Lift up the half-round piece. I used a credit card to start it up, then used a plastic trim removal tool to finish. It is stapled on so pry carefully.

When it is removed there is a couple of screws that will be exposed. remove them and the flat piece trim releases.

You then can reach behind with a 5/16" (?, metric?) socket on a long extension. Back the bolt off and it will loosen the TV and allow it to pivot. Your can reach the inputs then.

When reinstalling the half-round I was able to align the staples just right and got it to hold in. I may have used a couple of small pieces of double-sided tape too.

Look on bathroom wall behind the TV. Should be a picture. Bottom is velcro, top are hooks that slide under the wall. Easy access to the back.

Thanks for your contribution. However, as stated previously, I've looked at the wall in the bathroom, behind pictures. No access.
