You gotta be kidding.
This is exactly where they used to put the screws, and there is no screwed on cover or panel in one of the cabinets, maybe where the power cord comes out?
If there is no other way in, an access door inside the cabinet could work but you probably don't want to mess with a brand new camper.

There is a power outlet on the wall inside the left cabinet, and the two sat cables come through. I could cut that wall out, but still not sure if I could reach! Looking at the manual, there would be an hdmi connection fairly close.

About the TV 's

There are two big bolts that holds the TV on in the living room , if your going back to the dealer have them put it on a arm so you can get everything ! I wouldn't cut the panel out !

Looking at the picture gives me an idea, I've seen cable grommets at Lee Valley Tools (good Canadian company where I spend way too much money ) Metal Cable Grommets - Lee Valley Tools
If you would either carefully enlarge the existing hole or cut a new one the size of the grommet that could solve all your issues.

Well I got the closet doors hung again, I guess time will tell if they hold up. I do have my doubts though. Also got the lights working, it was just a burnt fuse. Must have missed it when I checked yesterday.

on edit: I really like that Lee Valley product, that would be nice and clean! Installing the cable by feel would be tricky, but I don't think it would be too bad.

Looks like your 'Day 1' is ending on a good note

the bracket they used to mount the TV's in my Silverback are fairly stiff to get it unmounted. take another look between your tv and the panel and verify that it is actually mounted to that panel. all i had to do to mine is lift firmly to get the TV to unhook from its bracket

The TV is flush with the panel. No room behind it for a bracket unfortunately. Another interesting thing we just found: tried to use the water dispenser, and managed to fill the fridge with water! After a quick check, it turns out the water filter base is broken! So when you try to get a glass of water, it sprays all over the fridge! Lol. Looked on Amazon.ca and the replacement part is about $40. How hard can it be? My only reservation is was this unit improperly winterized and more stuff is broken? Only one way to tell I suppose.

All in all, we are loving our new 5th wheel. Still camping in the backyard, wouldn't be surprised if we do till its time to go on the maiden voyage Thursday!
