TV replacement

I am watching the black Friday sales to try and replace the 2 TV's in my FORESTER. I am not sure how easy they are replaceable so has anyone done this yet? The front TV I think is a 32 and the rear 24.

I do not know of the Forester, but flat screen TV's have universal 4 screw attachment points for mounting. Your old mounts would come off and screw onto the new TV. Just be aware that differences in input connections could cause you a problem.

I would look up your manuals either online or on paper for your current TV's and look up online manuals for new TV's and compare that you have the SAME TV inputs so that you do not lose anything when you upgrade.

Typically you get more HDMI inputs and less older style RCA inputs with newer TV's. Also the placement of where the inputs are located could also cause a headache with the length of the cords on your older TV's

Have put in tvs in bedroom. wasn't a big deal. my tv in Lr had to be replaced due to a buzz or hum in the surround sound through the iRV66 unit. It is virtually impossible to find a HDTV that has the RCA audio output jack to go to the iRv66. The TV the dealer replaced the toshiba with was a Furrion and has the RCA audio output. Other than that, if this situation applies to your TT, is to use a OIS(optical) connection to get the surround

I had to change mine out in the front of my coachman, they made a homemade bracket for it, and it would not fit my new tv, so I ordered on from amazon, universal, worked just fine

Hi just replaced living room Tv with a Vizio E43-C2. Tv bolted right on to the existing Tv mount. This Tv fits the entertainment space perfectly for the 2015 V-Lite 30wikss. The Tv also has audio out. Not sure if the audio out is volume pendent like the Toshiba Tv was. With volume pendent the signal strength is low going to the IRV 66 radio this will result in poor audio performance. I hooked my audio input to the IRV 66 radio to my dish Vip 211k audio out. This made a big performance difference. I could not believe how much better the IRV 66 radio sounded.

Hope this helps Tim
