I would be apprehensive also but perhaps you can give it one more try.

The rep said "not more than an inch" so go in very slowly up to an inch and see if you feel anything catch then spread the tools as mentioned in a previous post.

It DOES "catch" at the 1 inch point, and when I tried, I couldn't get anything to move. I may try one more time. If I get it, I'll post directions.

I never removed a radio on an RV but it may be that the tools you are using have to move some tabs that hold the radio in the dash. Sometimes those tabs are small and only have to move a fraction of an inch.

Try pulling on the radio while you have the tools spread. I think a previous poster advised you to push the tool ends to the outside once you have them in the tabs. It may not be obvious that you did anything until you pull on the radio.

See what 5picker posted in message #63 in this thread.

The rep on the phone said "work it out with your thumbs" (to include the "Spread"). I gave it one more try, tried to "work it out" and it seemed like way too much effort.

I just don't know what to do at this point. I don't think calling them again would help. I'll see if there is a video.

Just googled, and found that the Solera forum had the same problem as I:

Remove Megnadyne

Turns out you have to remove the trim before you remove the radio. FORGET IT! NOT DOING THAT!

Disregard the problems you read about on the Solera! They don't apply to your chassis. Two different animals. The Solera can not use the "U" wires.

Take a look st the diagram and text in this link. It may help you visualize the process.

Removing The Unit - Magnadyne M4-LCD Operation And Installation Manual [Page 49]

Also, try doing one side st a thing me and "walk" it out.

Basic Ford locks.
Don't go in too far. Don't wreck the locks. Otherwise you have to pull the dash.

Well, here is a picture of the corner of my radio when I was trying to figure out the SD card slot. I have a 2013 coach on a 2012 chasis.

Ok, I will give it one more try and try one at a time. I have the 1 inch point marked with duct tape on the U tool.
