I strongly suggest that you do not cut the metal support across the top of the TV opening.

If you're referring to the square tube, part of the coach framework, I wouldn't dream of it.

I did finish cutting off the cage, close to the frame piece mentioned above. Used a multi-tool with a half circle blade to finish the cuts started with the sabre saw.

Now to close in the open bottom, add some framework to attach a mount to and choose a mount. I did find a mount that articulates in/out, side to side and up and down. I like the up and down to bring TV closer to eye level. Don't like looking up all the time to see the TV.

In our previous MH I mounted an arm sideways so the TV would move up and down instead of side to side. Made viewing much better.

You're welcome. I ordered the mount from Overstock, will let you know how it works once it's installed.

Don't have the mount yet. Did frame in the bottom of the opening so I can close it off. Cut a piece of thin under layment to fit in the opening. I plan I getting some vinyl like the rest of the underside to wrap on the under layment. There'll be some seams but hopefully won't look too bad.

Don't forget to put in some holes or a fan to get the het out of the "box".

Don't think heat will be a problem. No holes or fans with the old tube TV. LED/LCD TVs generate very little heat. It won't be sealed up and the TV will be lowered down when viewing so the upper portion of the opening will be exposed.
