TVRemoval 2004 Adventurer

Need help how do I go about removing the old non digital tv in the front of my 33V?
I see caps covering screws underneath, does it drop / fall down ?

First step is to put a towel over the defroster vents so you don't lose anything down them! Then remove the little plastic caps over all of the screws in the plastic 'tub' under/behind the TV. They should snap out with a little gentle prying via the small notch. This exposes a bunch of screws that all need to be removed. If you have a central sun visor under there you'll need to remove that as well. (The 'tub' will still be attached to the wooden face frame by screws from the inside.)

Remove the center speaker above the TV (if you have one) by snapping off the cover, removing the screws, and unplugging it.

The wooden face frame is held in with a couple of screws through the cabinet walls on each side. When those are removed the whole assembly should tilt out at the top and then come down and off.

Disconnect everything plugged into the back of the TV!

The TV inside will probably be secured in its metal cage via a metal bar across the top and double-sided tape or foam below. Undo the bolts holding the metal bar and the TV should come out. CAUTION: It's heavy, so you REALLY should have someone else to help you remove it!

Chris gives great directions, and yes that thing is really heavy "double grunt and a 1/2" heavy!

Yup...what he said.
Putting a 32" flat screen up there is one of the best mods we've ever done.

We made a sliding frame on our Vectra 40AD when we replaced the TV using drawer runners from Home Depot etc, now we have a great storage area for the RV manuals and all those things you NEED, but only occasionally!! Made a large "L" shaped shelf with a cabin door turn-buckle!!

See page 11 of your parts diagram:
http://www.winnebagoind.com/service/...04/4wfg33v.pdf

Simplified is remove face frame #4, loosen bolts on clamp bar #10 and slide TV out the front. There may be double sided tape so you may need to rock it to get it loose and yes those old CRT based sets can be very heavy. There is usually no need to remove the plastic tub unless you plan on deleting it instead of using it to conceal some storage shelves behind the new flat panel TV.

At least on my 2005 Vectra the plastic tub is (or was) attached to the wooden face frame with screws from the inside--accessible only when both are removed together. I actually left those screws out when I re-assembled mine after putting in the new TV.
