    Hello All - I'm new here and looked around this site but could not find what I was searching for. I just bought a 2008 Sundancer 350 and I'd like to gain access to the back of the 26" LG TV to hook up more cables. Any idea how to get to it? There is a front panel that the screen comes through. There is an L-shaped panel that wraps around the bottom and side of the TV enclosure. There is another panel about 4"-5" below that panel just above the curtain channel leading to the mid-cabin. Looks like I'll need to take the small panel out first so the L-shaped panel can drop down. Though I'm not sure and don't want to mess up the panels trying to remove them. There are visible screws in the L-shaped panel. And one visible plastic cap on the port side of the small panel with another screw hidden somewhere on the starboard side. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

    I removed my LG 26LS3500 26 INCH MULTI-SYSTEM LED TV 110-220 VOLTS on my 2008 350 DA. The cable coax connector is busted. I also need to get inside and fix it. It would probably be easier to replace the TV. When I checked into that, the LG 26LS3500 were around $350. Not bad, but the part can't be more than $10. What makes this TV expensive is the fact that it is the world wide voltage model. I could buy slightly smaller or larger TV's for the a third of the cost that would have all of the connections you would want. The issue I have is the power connection is snaked through the hardtop. I don't want to get into snaking a new power line because they are different and not compatible. I therefore want to also gain access to the inside and fix the TV. If I find a way to gain access I will let you know. I'm not afraid of breaking it. If I cannot fix this TV I'd also love to hear from someone if they know of another brand TV with the same voltage power supply and connector that is an upgrade. I've downloaded a pic of the connector that got busted. If anyone has had the same issue it would be interesting (to me) what their solution was.

    I just reread your post...sorry, I took it you were trying to get inside the TV not to the back of the TV.

    That is correct, I am trying to get to the back of the TV to get to the cable connections. Thanks anyway for your reply.

    This is a follow-up to my original post. I was able to gain access to the back of the TV by removing the L-shaped panel that wraps around the bottom and side of the TV enclosure. No other panels needed to be removed.
