Pop any little button type screw covers off. Remove screws.
Look at the top corner of each adjoining cabinets. Might be a bolt that holds a band around the tv. Those things can be really heavy so be sure to have an extra pair of hands. Even after the band is removed the tv might hang on due to anti slip material that has taken hold.

Ok poped out and screws removed None lost so far. Seems the front of the plastic basket is screwed into the inside of the cabinet frame with no access to the screwheads .They will be sacrificed .

You should find a couple of screws from inside the cabinets on either side into the lower part of the wooden face frame. Once those are removed, along with the center fold down visor if you have one, the frame should come off along with the attached plastic shroud. (If you have a center speaker above the TV that must be removed first!)

The TV itself will be held down with a bar or strap across the top which will need to be unbolted to remove it. You'll probably want a hand to remove the TV itself--it's quite heavy.

Ours is a bit different you can see a flange and pin holding the TV "foot" to a metal plate that surrounds the sides and bottom .Screws coming from the side don't do much they are at the top and have been removed .Will post pics once it reveals what is going on .

I pulled mine out last year. You have to drop the plastic bottom you should be able to find the other attachment points. Just take it one step at a time. The face frame does need to come off also. There is a plug for the speaker that you disconnect as you pull the face frame away. Wish I could remember more this time of the morning. Good luck.

Just about ,
The bottom trim piece has 4 screws 2 completely inaccessible do to the metal box .
The nut that holds down the top strap is blocked by a flange .The TV was installed before the roof and front cap were installed .

I'm quite sure that the TV was installed after the roof and front cap!

What bottom trim piece are you talking about? The whole wooden faceframe with attached plastic surround housing should come off in one piece once the screws through the side walls of the adjacent cabinets, the center sun viser screws, and the surround screws under the little plastic caps are removed. It probably needs to tip out a bit at the top as it comes off.

Can you post some pictures of the area you're talking about?

Ok so the TV was welded in place and No amount of unscrewing cabinetry released the frame part 11 in the diagram so some technical yanking and diligent sawing released it .Now I have a lot of wires. I think they are all labeled LOL and HA-HA .

Been wrestling with the TV in our 03 Adventurer. Removed front plastic cover, not too bad. Removed metal strap holding TV down, not too bad after prying loose the glue holding it to top of TV. Removed TV with help of my son, not too bad, especially since he carried it out of MH.

Now I'm fighting with the metal cage the TV sat in. It extends past the front of the cabinets at the ceiling. It also hangs down way beyond the bottom of the flat screen I want to install. I cut through it front to back near the ceiling, sabre saw. Now over 90% of it is gone, just the piece that runs along the ceiling and down the side to where I made the cut. It's welded to the frame piece at the ceiling.

It goes up the side then makes a 90* near the ceiling, can't cut around that corner with a sabre saw, blade is not long enough. Using a longer blade runs the risk of hitting the roof or something else I don't want to cut.

Well that's tomorrow's job, I got most of it out today.

There is little doubt the bus was built around the TV box.
