Getting Behind the Main TV on 2013 378TS

Any ideas on how I get behind the living room TV in my new 378TS. The TV sits above the fire place and there is no drawer. I need to work on the HD wiring. T

Same here. We have a 2013 Georgetown xl 378. There were 5 screws above the TV and 4 screws below it. Very little room to take them out. To reinstall them you either have to have a magnetic screw driver that is at least 10" long or a screw driver with an attachment that would hold the screws on the end. Easily done with the right tools.
I too am upgrading my tv with HD equipment. I will be building a shelf above the TV to hold my HD direct tv receiver and a 5.1 blue ray player combo stereo.
I wish Forest River would have put more thought into there sound equipment. Though it's not too bad. Just no HD wiring.

Not sure how to get behind your TV configuration cause ours sits on a steel bracket mounted on top of the fireplace cabinet. I've already moved the TV back so I would have room to put a sound bar by just relocating the bracket. Ours also has a cupboard under the TV and above the fireplace and that is where we put the DirecTV receiver and a BluRay player.

It does sound like it is a little different than ours. We do not have the cupboard. My tv has a bracket on the back of it. The bracket is then attached to a piece of plywood that runs from the bottom of the TV space to the top with the said bracket screwed to that. I have a few pics that I will attach. Don't know if it will help though.
I wish mine had a cupboard that could be used as a DVD/STEREO shelf.
Ours was manufactured 12/15/12
