You will probably need to remove the trim from around the cabinet that it is in. At that time most such screws were set in and covered by wooden buttons in the openings.

A second set of hands won't hurt to lower it out won't hurt either.

On mine, there are screws that go in from the side to hold the front tv frame in place, possibly covered by wood plugs. Remove and bag all these. On mine, the tv is screwed to the cabinet, remove and bag these screws too. Now, you will need 2-3 people; 1-2 to remove and hold the tv while #3 unplugs the power and signal. Once unplugged, throw it out the door and have a beer.

EXACTLY!! The old Sony in our coach easily weighed north of 50 pounds and was a real bear to wrestle by myself. I HIGHLY recommend a second set of hands to remove the old tube style TV!

Thank you, can see the screws a trim piece.
Do you happen to know if whatever connection is to back up camera can be attached to newer flat screens?
Or will some other system be needed?
Thank you

Thank you.
I see screws and trim piece that need to go and will have help for weight.
Do you happen to know if back up camera can attach to newer flat screen tv? Or is another type unit needed?

On a 1998, it would be all coax cable.

Old TVs were analog if signal was through coach is on coax ... You might need analog to digital convertor if on coax . New TV should still have RCA inputs there are convertors for that. If camera to old tv has RCA you should be okay. I'm not sure of any auto switching to old tv from camera and if new tv will tune to Aux every time as soon as you turn it on without flipping through menu.

My 27" analog TV was mounted in a box in the center. Took me a while to figure out how it was held in. There were 2 screws that went up from underneath and fastened a wooden platform down that the TV was fastened to. The platform was tilted forward slightly. When I removed the screws the whole TV and wood platform fell forward right onto my back. I was able to balance it on my back and somehow disconnect the wiring and then backed up to the coach and flipped it off my back. That big of TV was heavy too.



This is my current TV mount, a swing out so I can utilize the box for storage.
