I have the same issue. You need a line level volume control. Either buy it from here stereo remote volume control or build your own from radio shack parts (you will need potentiometer (volume control, either 1 stereo or 2 mono) and rca input sockets and a small kit box...and wiring it up...

I have the parts and will be putting the volume control in the cabinet next to the vcr/antenna switcher. Which tv did you get? I replaced the cheap RCA unit with a philips tv...it was very hard to find one that would fit within the steel cage. Most tube tv are wider now cuz they put stereo speakers on the side rather on the bottom...

i found a 24" rca at Rex rv..it fits width and height wise but is a little too deep..i had to tilt it forward a little and cut the trim to fit..i plan to get some oak and build new trim similar to my bedroom setup..for the sound it appears you are just inserting a volume control between the tv and amp..is that correct? thanks..jim

yep, a low (or line) level volume control...I thought this would be an easy item to find on the web...but it didn't turn out so...

The 24in philips tv I bought from walmart fits...but:
1) the depth is just about maxed out...you have to move ALL the cables out of the way...
2) the height is lower, I had to add spacers to the upper metal support/tie strap (I added wood with nonslip padding. I painted the wood black)
3) need to trim the base of the tv to match the curve on my tv shroud...I also need to trim the plastic tv shroud too...Good thing you cannpot see all this trimming when everything is back together.

When this TV dies, I'll re-work the whole area and install a flat (lcd type) tv and put in a wood surround...or just get a new coach.
