It's been awhile since I did mine so I don't recall all the details. I do remember there was some extra length buried in the wall above drivers head, which is why I removed that side panel. I did use a longer power cord and I may have had to extend the coaxial cable, an easy task. There was a lot of extra audio wiring.

Time for an update on installing the larger TV.

Our current camping trip is the first time we have used the new TV. As expected, the larger screen improves the viewing experience. The Samsung's picture quality is much better than the Sansui. We have not found a need for dropping the screen down as the viewing angle from the rear sofa is excellent, especially when we partially recline the sofa.

I had previously wired the TV to play through the Kenwood sound system ( With the Sansui with the built in DVD player, the sound through the rear speakers was such that understanding movie dialogue required turning the volume up to a high level. It was not clear and crisp.

With the new TV not having a built-in player, I was forced to install a separate DVD player. I chose a Sony Blue-Ray unit. It uses an HDMI connection to the TV. The combination of the new TV's better quality sound and the higher quality of the Sony player has resulted in vastly improved sound quality.
