Looking to change out TV to LCD. Saw another postwith ID that the front trim is held by 2 screws each inside the cabinets on either side of the TV.

Found the screws on the driver side, not the passenger side. In that cabinet is a box with the antenna selection and the selector for stereo or TV.

Any suggestions,ideas or someone who has done this before?

I got the drinking and swearing component suitably covered, its the fine details that escape me!

CFB~ The passenger side should have the same two screws close together within an inch of the opening of the cabinet and near the bottom. You may also have to remove the grill and speaker mounted above the TV.

If you also include the make-model and year of your RV in your signature it will help getting responses specific to your RV model.

Good luck and welcome to the forum.

CFB-I have been there twice with ours. Even though we are newer I think you find them to be the same for removing the trim. What I found is the two screws on the passenger side were really hidden when I started to look for them. I actually had to get a flash light and step stool to that cabinet to find them. Mine were fairly low towards the bottom of the cabinet and were driven hard into the wood board. Hope that helps.

I have a 2001 Horizon, which was the sister coach of yours in 2001. To get to the screws on the right side, it's necessary to remove the lower cover of the video selection switch. Then you can move the switch and find the screws in the same location as the left side.

To make sure you have no humm in the surround you have to replace the suppressor that was originally attached to your TV. It is a Radio Shack item 270-054 for about $ 20.00 and you need male to male connectors for about $ 5.00. It eliminates the humm thorough the speakers.

I know your post about radio hum was a couple years ago but I've been trying to fix this for a couple years. You mentioned a suppressor, Radio Shack part 270-054, where is this part installed?

That's actually a transformer and it's there as an inpedence match for the stock TV since they went into the circuit board and grabbed the pre-amp out. My replacement LCD has not only line-level audio outs, but optical as well; the ultimate in isolation
Neither output causes any hum whateoever so it now lives in the house where I have been fighting ground loops in the audio for years.

One trick I have used a lot when I can't see is to put a small digital camera on closeup, and reach in to the invisible area, then take pictures, remove camera and download to the computer.

Often I find the missing screw, cable, problem area this way.

I have also used this trick to take pictures of relay boxes or other components mounted in obscure places. Trying to read part numbers with a flashlight is impossible, but with a close up shot, then a search on google for the part number will often identify what you are looking at, and then you know.
