2002 Holiday Rambler Admiral, Rear TV

Hi,
I just removed the bedroom or rear tube tv. Has anyone updated their rear tv? If so, may we have some pointers on building up a mount for a flat screen mount to mount to? We do have the mount, which swings and locks in place.
Then, this may just become another cupboard..
Thank you
Daniel

I simply mounted plywood on the back of the face and hung the tv on it. Didn’t need the extra cabinet space behind it. Those old TVs are really big and heavy huh!

Hi Daniel, a great and worthwhile update for sure! We just finished upgrading from tube TVs in the front and bedroom. We built doors that mount inside the opening of the existing cabinets, then mounted the TV directly to that. I documented the update with pictures in our upgrades thread, you can check them out here: https://www.irv2.com/forums/f115/upg...-485002-2.html

Best of luck with the update, and let me know if you have any questions at all.
Josh

I did the same thing, pulled out the 19 inch CRT, from the cabinet that swings open a bit, replaced it with a 26 inch LCD. I filled the hole with a piece of finished plywood painted black, flat mounted the TV on the board. That worked for awhile then two days ago I replaced the mount which only tilted up and down, with an articulating arm, so I can point the TV at the two rocking chairs in our bedroom. I can do that without opening the cabinet. I screwed four cuphooks into the board so I can strap the arm down while traveling with short bungee cords.

Daniel-

A prior owner of our 2008 removed the tube TV and put in an LCD. The cabinet front frame has a hinge on the left side and an opening for the TV screen. Whoever did the work mounted some small pieces of wood and aluminum angle on the rear of the cabinet front frame. The rear of the TV is mounted to that. That left a large cabinet space behind the TV. I converted that to a linen closet by adding a ventilated shelf.

My pleasure! Pretty simple upgrade with standard tools. We did it in a weekend. I think there are about 6 posts on the TV upgrade on our thread, if you want to see how the struts were installed and so on.

Here if you have any questions.
