How Do I Remove An Old TV From My RV?

by George Peates
(Florida)

I have a 2006 31c Minnie Winnie and want to change the installed TV for a flat panel tv. How does one remove the old TV?

ANSWER: Greetings George thanks for submitting your question on our Ask An RV Question Page.

Well, I would like to tell you step by step how to remove your old TV, but I can't. The ways TVs are mounted in RVs vary by manufacturer and even by model of RV. The most common TV installation is usually in a cabinet.

Look at the front of the cabinet where your TV is located and you may see some little divots where the front bezel of the TV cabinet is attached to the main cabinet via screws. The screws are usually covered by plastic or wood plugs which you need to remove before you can access the screws. Sometimes these plugs just pop out, but sometimes RV manufacturers have glued them in place.

Once you get that front cabinet face plate or bezel off, you will hopefully be able to better ascertain how the TV is mounted in the cabinet. In some cases it may be as simple as removing a couple of screws, in other cases you may find some unique mounting brackets. But the first step is always removing the front of the cabinet.

I afraid that time and space does not allow me to go into each type of mounting you might find. If you cannot get past removing the front of the cabinet then I am afraid that you may have to go to an RV dealership and have them remove the TV for you.

Once you get the old TV out you will have to modify the cabinet to accept the new flat screen TV. This modification again can be easy or hard depending on the carpentry skills you possess.

I am sorry that I could not be of more help with your TV replacement project.
