Make sure you have access to back of TV and all connections after TV is installed...don't ask! :rolleyes::ph34r:

YUP, it pulls out for access. It’s not easy (so it won’t come out while driving).

Joe, that's why I have the Vizio.  The back of the Sony cracked and came half way off, while watching!  Had I been driving...ugh. The Vizio is bigger and 1/2 the weight.:P

Wow!!

Ours is a Samsung LED, it’s very light weight. I mounted the brackets so the tv and sound bar actually rest on the rubber feet under the sound bar against the bottom of the cabinet. I purposely did this so they are not suspended in the air to avoid TV damage. I’m sure the tv by itself would be ok but the sound bar mounted to the tv was a concern. When you press the TV back it also sits on the old wood on the sides. I cut them specifically for that tv on the last installation so it would sit flush with the cabinet. As long is it doesn’t squeak I’ll be ok.

I also bought the mount that is designed for a tv up to 70 lbs. I figured that was a good idea since it’s going into a RV. 

I’ll have more photos today, I’m waiting for the stain to dry on the wood trim.

Joe,

Did you change the depth of the cabinet enclosure? Job well done.

Jim

Thanks Everyone.

 

Jim, no I did not change the depth, ours sits back closer to the windshield, where most come forward into the walkway. Modifying the cabinet wouldn't have netted me any interior headroom gains so I left it alone.

Joe, I cut our cabinet back 7" and even Carl can enter without hitting his head. And to the devil made me do it.:P:rolleyes:

I do not have 7" protruding from the cabinet base. Maybe 3" for it to be flush with the cabinets on the left and right side of it.

Our dash curves out more than the TV protrudes, so it forces you away from it. I've banged my head on it before. It happens when I'm routing through the tray on the dash and I lean up, even cut back it wouldn't fix clumsiness :wacko:

Jim, 

I took my cabinet down removed the front from the cabinet set my skill saw for to the angle of the cabinet. I then cut both top and bottom. Then cut the sides on the table saw.

It came out perfectly. I will send a picture soon.
