Front TV

Anyone - on a 2008 Berk, if you take the left inside wall off of the front AV compartment. (In front of passenger seat) can you get to the back of the front TV ??? I want to hook up either a sound bar or a couple of good up-front speakers and I don't want to have to take the front all apart to do that ....

Short answer, no. Ernest, take a look at the link I sent you earlier, there is a link to front TV replacement. It has pictures of what you'd be up against.

I hear you Ernest. I wanted to add a HDMI cable to the rear of our TV so I could add a SAT receiver. It is possible but not a fun task. As I recall, I needed to remove the electric front window shades, remove the curtain track, then remove the center overhead "upholstered" trim piece.Sort of sitting on the dash, you can then get your arm into the cavity behind the TV and feel around for the plug. Not easy but I did it and a couple people I've given this example have done it too. When I hung our new TV up front, I bought cables for every single connector on the TV and just have them sitting in the entertainment cabinet for potential "future" use...

I got so frustrated trying to get to the back of the tv I finally cut a hole in the bottom of the compartment and had a friend make me a frame now I have a finished hatch. I also installed a sound bar bought one from amazon a Vizio fits nice under the tv. Jim

I don't see an 'access panel' anywhere near the TV on my 2014.
I assumed I would need to remove the TV from the front to reach the back panel.
Is that an option?

WHAT A PAIN IN THE --- !!!! Come on FR, give us a little break.... Can you tell I'm totally frustrated.... To have to take the front end of the coach apart in order to get to the back of the TV is absolutely crazy...... I'm seriously considering doing the hatch in the bottom thing.... Just need a simple way to get to the rear of the TV... Can't add a sound bar or extra speakers without being able to get to it..... Sorry for the rant !!!!!!

I guess I should be blessed nor having a front tv. I like having the extra storage space and no frustration. Lol

Probably easy to install but not service. I will bet there are many things that are not easy to service in the coaches. Is tv that important to get your bowels in an uproar. Lol
