Peter,
Glad to hear you solved it. If you have time post a photo of the TV installation. I'm considering changing mine and am looking for ideas.
Thx, Steve

Thank you all.  I have connected with the previous owner who has given me a lot of information, including that the TV has been replaced and the current one is a smart TV so I won't need to exchange it.

When I was trying to find an HDMI connection in 2012 for our iPad to run on the old coach TV, I could see and access behind the TV by doing what Steve instructs... the vent in the upholstery on the windshield side.  I found I could not only get to the TV’s HDMI input (the only one on any device back then on our ‘06), but could see the braces the TV mounted to.  Somehow at the time it had escaped me that by simply popping off four upholstery buttons, I could unscrew and remove the entire panel that the metal vent was on, and get much better access.  That’s how RV Outfitters in Bend replaced the TV and remodeled the cabinet 4 years ago.

Peter,
I think your 08 is similar to my 07. If so, there is a metal panel on the back of the front TV cabinet that has cooling slots. Removal of that panel will give you access to the rear of the TV and the mounting brackets, etc.

    Peter,
   As I recall, the headliner molded piece that you see when the TV is retracted does come off so you can access the mounting screws that hold the TV in place. I am pretty sure there is wood laminated to the molded section and hidden screws above and below the TV when the unit is in the viewing position. They also use the industrial strength "velcro" in various locations to secure the molded piece. If you tug gently on the corners you'll see where it is secured.
  Have fun! Fred

   Steve,
 That is a true statement about reversing the polarity, However the fins on the blower wheel are angled to rotate in the same directing the motor shaft is turning.  I tried your suggestion, no velocity to my sweethearts side of the coach. Have fun!

Our new-to-us 2008 Contessa has the Vizio tv mounted over the dash.  We want to replace the tv with a new smart tv.  I have looked carefully at the current installation and cannot figure out how you remove the old tv.  It almost appears to be held in with double sided tape.  There are no screws and you can't access the back of it.  How do I remove it?

Technical Support / Re: Discharge capacitors / Replace AC reversing coil
« Last post by Bill Lampkin on July 03, 2020, 04:20:00 PM »
After a little more thought, It can't hurt to short out the caps before working on the roof AC, but, as far as the reversing coil goes, I don't think that is part of the fan motor or compressor circuit, so there should be no shock hazard on the reversing coil wires, from the caps. Just check for no AC voltage on the reversing coil wires before you dig into them.

Adam,
The ACME blower diagram is available in Coach Assist. As Fred noted, the blowers for the dual blower system have opposite rotations. (I know as I spent a day+ "troubleshooting" a blower that was rotating the wrong way  :) ). Since they are not grounded by the case but have pwr & gnd connections, reversing them will reverse the fan rotation.
