2008 Charleston Overhead TV Removal

I just joined this forum after various emails with the FR Tech. Got this 2008 Charleston two years ago and have been full-timing for 20months. Want to replace the overhead TV but cannot figure out how to remove it.

Has anyone taken theirs out? The wooden frame around the TV appears to have been custom made for the Westernhouse TV.

Any bit of help at this point would be appreciated.

Could you post a picture of the set up? If it's like the Berkshire I can tell you.

LL, that wood frame needs to be unscrewed. In one of your pictures you can see one of the screws. It probably has three screws per side. The TV is mounted to a frame that attaches to that wooden frame. You will need some help to help hold it up as you undo the screws. Once you have the screws removed and the wooden frame, have one person hold it up as the other person unplugs it.

Campin Canjun,
Thanks. Here is the situation, on the wooden frame there is one screw in each corner. The wooden frame does not slip over the TV (TV too big). I have banged on the wooden frame from each side and nothing. I have tried prying the wooden frame straight out without breaking it, - won't budge.

It is obvious that the wooden frame was made for this particular TV and would not be re-usable with a new TV. I have been leaning toward bursting up the wooden frame, but am a little reluctant to do so. But I don't see any other choice.

Again,
Thanks
Lloyd
