How to remove bedroom TV

Originally I was going to put all these posts into the 2005 Airstream Skydeck thread, but then I realized others may wanna know the answer and that would make it harder so here goes:

I have likely the original TV that came with the RV. I took the top drawer out below the TV and there is a plate under the TV that I cannot remove. I tugged on the TV and it will rotate in place but will not come any further forward than it is. I looked at the header above it and cannot see a way to remove it, it is integral to the cabinet and was installed before the TV. On the right is the outside wall, on the left is a full length mirror that I can swing out, but it is backed by more wall, no panels to remove. Behind THAT is a cabinet that I can open and is as deep as the TV, but again has a full wall of wood that has no screws to undo.

It feels like there is a simple button that I need to push, but I cannot even get the iPhone into any crevice to figure out how to take the TV out...

Rear bedroom TV removal

OK, so when I had my 390XL I replaced the the original rear TV with a new flatscreen. Underneath the base that angles out and on top of the top drawer you will see a catch...a long thin screwdriver will raise the catch so you can open the swinging TV cabinet all the way to access the wiring.

Oh, nuts, mine is not a swinging cabinet. Just sits at a slight angle all the time. There is a lip that is equally angled and is held down by two screws into the cross member that the top drawer closes against. I can slightly lift the TV before it hits the cross member above the TV and it looks like the surface that the TV is on comes up with the TV, but not high enough to see if it is attached, very tight space as you can see in the photo.

Boy that photo really shows off how much damage my RV suffered from leaks down the wall.

OK, now I made the picture larger, I see what you mean. That fixed shelf is different than mine was. Mine swiveled on locked into the closed position. My guess is that you TV is screwed into the base of that fixed shelf support from underneath. Keep looking around, you will find it. It helps to wiggle things around to see how they are fastened. Don't worry about the water stains, they are easily removed.

Try pulling the drawer out and look for screws coming up threw bottom of TV .... Most likely You will "not" find a button to release it, those were screwed down some how

Also Those older tube tvs didn't have any cool brackets for mounting- in my past experience (home theater and all A/V) they are secured some how with screws and possibly wood cleats , out of site-
Happy hunting

I thought I uploaded this photo, perhaps I just referenced the discolored fabric behind the TV. I don't see any screws, thanks for the good wishes. I'll keep plugging away. Perhaps I could just hammer the TV to bits and remove them that way.

Sorry I see this so late I pulled mine out no problem.
Remove the from on the side in the top of the TV. You lift the complete wooden board over the font angled board and it slides out. There are some big metal brackets screwed to the TV and to the lower board. The board between the top drawer and the TV are actually two on the lower on it build in the top is where the TV is installed on and it is only secured by the fancy angled board in front.
There is plug with 4 or 5 wires I am not sure what this is for. If you get you TV out take a picture and let me know how it was connected.
Thanks
Peter

OK, thanks all for the help, Peter, the trick I was missing on your advice was that the frame board had to be removed and I couldn't see how it was attached. So if I tried to lift the TV like you suggest to get it over the lip to remove it I hit the frame.

My new mechanic came over to fix the A/C in the bedroom and we got to talking, just tugging on the frame allowed it to come off. Just held in with framing nails, surprising! I could then lift the frickin' heavy TV out and took it to the recycling center. I hooked my old kitchen LCD TV up and scanned for channels, but I don't think there are any in the area. I'll try again in Reno next week.

The wire that you were asking about seems to come from the front, but I don't have ANY of the original A/V setup, so there WAS a switch box, but I don't have it, that fed the wire that goes to the back TV so you can watch the front DVD on the back TV. I hooked that wire up to the back TV and will play with it while I am away this week. Still need to get real TVs for this RV but first the SMELL.

-Randy

My frame was screwed on so I assume yours was to and you took it of. Looks like the typical Airstream work method everyone is a little different.
