Back TV replacement - complete

So...there are plenty of ideas on replacement of old Analog TV's. Here is what I went with for my Winny 38T. The bedroom old RCA was like over 50 lbs and had to be removed from the underside of the bottom of the shelf it was attached to. Once out there were big holes in this flooring. There are brackets that had to be removed (reason of the holes). Anyway I then put in a "finish" flooring and a back panel to "hide" the RV wires and cabinet framing. To attach the new TV I choose a mount to a "new" unfinished cabinet door with hidden hinges..I had to cut holes in this door for the TV cables...an then stained and finished the door adding a holding clip and door "knob" to help with the opening of the door. I now have a new 24" Vizio TV and "extra" storage. I have attach pictures. Enjoy.

Looks really nice. I have an '07 Voyage and would love to change out both TV's. As I am not a good carpenter, or cabinet maker I am hesitant to take on the job.

Nice job! Very clever arrangement and great use of the avialable space.

Very nice work and great use of space. I think I see a new off season project coming on.

Question

How are you reinforcing the hinges on the door for the weight of the TV it looks to be about 30 to 40 pounds of TV.

Here is a thought for you. You can get local cabinet shops to make a raised panel door for you. Or you may be able to look for generic ones at Lowes etc; also Lowes has kitchen cabinets made so you can check with them. They actually match pretty well for finish and design.

All you need to do is the mount. I installed and articulating mount on the wall inside a similar cabinet in my MH. I first mounted a 3/4 ply wall overlay for the mount by locating the wall stud and using metal screws to mount the ply to the wall. Then the TV mount has something to lag to and it spreads the forces (flat TV's do not weigh a lot so it works fine).

Then you just need to mount the ready made door with hinges and a latch (I used magnetic one inside). You are done.

To be fair I am a woodworker, I made my own door etc; but what I described is an easy deal for some one with a few tools or a neighbor with some.

Obviously the size TV I bought was one which fit inside the cabinet.

My MH is in storage otherwise I would post a picture for you. Good luck, I think you can do this.

Actually the TV weight is just 14 lbs. Not what you think @ 30 + lbs. I also used longer wood screws into the cabinet frame on the hinge side and moved the bottom cross brace to the "very" bottom to "rest" on the floor of the inside of the cabinet...then added a door "clip" to keep the door from opening of the right side bottom of the door. Everything is secure...I hope. LoL.

Great Job! I did our bedroom TV in our Vectra 40FD pretty much the same way. The old Sony 19 inch space eater is gone and more storage has been created by using a new cabinet door (stained to match interior) and shelf. The new Samsung 24 inch is mounted to the front of the cabinet. The result is over 6 cubic feet of more storage the DW loves it.

Very nicely built!
I've heard of people reinforcing cabinet doors that were already there, but this is pretty cool. Well done!

I don't watch TV in the bedroom, so I removed the 19" boat anchor. Although I don't need the storage space, I will check at Lowe's and HD for a door. Thx for the hint.

WE are having new kitchen cabinet doors made at a cabinet shop so if Lowes cannot help then find a cabinet shop. Lowes orders out through a cabinet shop so maybe they will give you the name and you can work with them.

Let me know what you find.

No TV and do not need the space? You must be a tidy person.
