No problem with those issues the lcd sits at the same angle as the old tv so it is pointed downward......... the coach isnt wide enough even with both slides out to create any crazy viewing angles whether sitting or standing.......... Its a change over i highly recomend now after doing it and driving it with the lighter tv like i said before
MAJOR IMPROVMENT!!!!!!!!

I already did the bedroom TV mod using the area behind the TV for storage and added 5.1 surround sound in the bedroom. Here are a couple of pictures that show what I did.

Very nice work! We've replaced our 27" CRT Sony with a 37" HP LCD in the salon and replaced the analog 19" flatpanel in the bedroom with a 32". Love 'em both. Next comes replacing the exterior 20" analog flatpanel with a 26" LCD. Quite an improvement.

Just this weekend I installed a 42" Westinghouse LED edge-lit (about an inch thick) in my MBR. I removed the mirror, and using a slim-line LCD mounting bracket (for about $20 from Monoprice), the 26 lb. set is flush against the wall.

I had been concerned about the walls being able to support an LCD set, but with the newer LED edge or back lit units, the weight is not an issue.

I used 6 toggle bolts and this thing will not come off the wall. I'd post pics, but I spent more time watching movies than taking pics

On an aside, this TV draws 80 watts at full power. And, the power supply is an external 19VDC power brick - just like what you find on most laptops. I've purchased a 'universal automobile charger' power supply that will take the coach 12VDC and bump it to 19VDC (4.74A). Thus, I can run this TV direct from coach batteries instead of using an inefficient inverter or running the genny.

Incidentally, the TV was $559.00 at Costcos this weekend.

Now, I'm looking at replacing the main unit over the dash like the OP did... But it'll have to be 42" or larger

Here is mine so far, I moved the two existing side mounting bars up to the top, I placed two (one on each side) "L" brackes at the bottom to hold it up, I then used 3/8 screws and screwed into the front frame of TV at the top and then into the "L" brackets at the bottom.
The botom panel will be replaced with Black Acrylic after Christmas, and will have the BluRay Frenched into it.
This will free up the front Right storage area for disks.

Removing TV

I like the way each of you did yours. Mine is similar and I used the same space by putting the tv on a shelf and having aprox 6" on the bottom. I made that into a drawer with a brass hinge, stained the oak door and everything matches.
But, I want to pass on a quicker way to remove that heavy old tv without breaking your back. When I had it all opened up, unscrewed and unplugged. I turned my back to put my tools down and to get my son-in-law to help me remove it. I heard a crash behind me and the monster tv was sitting on the floor. Very unsophisticated removal and quite quick.

Joe from Ct.

OK I'm done with it, Using a piece of black acrylic (Plexi glass) I frenched the Blu-Ray player in and closed off the bottom.
Looks better in person.
