pic #7 Mod complete. I changed the entertainment center from a 20" TV to a 32" TV. The only thing that is not in place yet is the DVD player. All electrical and TV connections where pulled down to the right hand cabinet, If I have to make changes it would be easier to do it here. If I need to get behind the TV the bracket is design to slide forward with the TV on it. I tested it and it will slide out. The TV is a 32" Vizio it is 4.9" thick and weighs 30 lbs, all of the connections for electrical and components hook-up are located on the bottom center in the back which is perfect for this design. The reason for change is that the TV is in the middle of the camper and a 20" TV has trouble contending with the Dometic A/c system because it is too load and the A/C system is over top of the entertainment center and the seating area is in the back of the camper, with a bigger TV it has bigger speakers so there is more volume control and the TV is easier to see. As far as Concertone go's, I have replaced it with a Bose Ipod dock. A Bose 5.1 will be installed at a later date. As far as DVD storage, the new component cabinet has 1/4" plexiglass selves that are adjustable.

Nice work! How hard was it to demo the divider to give enough room for the LCD? I'm thinking about redoing the entertainment center in my TT, but I'm curious as to how "well" it is built.

There was no problem with demo, for the most part they are screwed together. You will find the screws on the back side where any two pieces meet. After you remove the screws then all you have to deal with are the staples that hold the paneled material to the small supports. I suggest to look over everything that you want to remove before you start.
