Front TV bezel removal

So this is new to me but it isn't rocket science and I'm pretty handy with tools. One thing I found and the original owner told me was that for some reason they were messing with the front TV and DVD and selector switch, etc, and so the TV wasn't plugged in. The plug is in the cabinet to the left of the TV and for whatever reason they had pulled the power cord on the TV and pulled it back through the wall between the cabinets.

So I'm thinking it's a straight shot to push the power cord back through but there's some sort of conduit between the cabinets, or it certainly seems like it.

So, I tried to remove the front bezel and remove the TV and get to it from the front. It is only held on by 4 screws. I removed the 4 screws and the bottom of the bezel comes loose but the top won't budge. I can't get the bezel off so can't get to the conduit that way.

Next step is to use one of the coax cables that already runs between the cabinets and tape the power cord to it and fish it back through. I'm determined to get that TV plugged in. Before doing that I will be plugging it into a working wall outlet first just to make sure it even works.

The real question here is, how do you get that bezel off. It's like it's glued on at the top. Or pressure from both cabinets on each side has it squeezed in there so tight I'm almost afraid of it not going back in, if I can get it out.

If I can fish the cord back through then I'm not concerned but if that TV ever dies I want to know I can pull it out. I must say though, it's well made, there isn't even a visible gap between the bezel and the cabinetry for an Ant fart to get through.

Steve,

Our front TV bezel is held by four screws, two at the top and two at the bottom. The top of the bezel has a very snug fit where it is sandwiched between the cabinet. Maybe you just need to use a little more force. Of course Monaco motorhomes are like snowflakes and no two are alike, so you better make double sure there is not a hidden screw or two before eating your Wheaties!

Bob

I agree with Bob. It's just a snug fit.

I get to my tv from the back. That's where all my wiring is. Just for thought. Good luck!

Yep, a 2011 Knight would have the drawer latches and snaps into place. We have a friend who has a 2011 Camelot and that is the way his is.

Thanks for the advice. I was able to use a coax cable as a fish to get the power cord back through. I could get to everything through the back as cdinatl mentioned but I just couldn't get my hand way up there to get the power cord. I got it plugged in though and it works great so that is no longer a problem. Happy camper now.
