I replaced mine with a 32" LED TV. The box is 3/4" plywood, so I cut a couple of pieces of 2 x 4 and screwed them between the steel supports on the right side of the box. Bought a swivel TV support and attached it to the 2 x 4's.
When I put the frame back on there was a gap at the top. I had a piece of laminate flooring left over so I cut that up, screwed it to the frame and and used it to fill in the gap.
We now use the empty space for storage.
Thank you, bmojmhs
!! I was a little tentative about pulling off the wood frame face plate. I found the straps and the plates, just seemed like the wood frame was still attached to the side. But just old age it was "glued". With a little coaxing it came off.
Also if I wanted to remove the entire box around the metal TV frame, there are two snaps and each side. Once you remove the snaps and screws they hide, you have to dig under the snaps behind the upholstery are screws that hold the wood box the metal frame. I decided not to go that far at this time and did similar to you, put a 2 x 4 across the ceiling behind the top of the wood frame and mounted the flat screen mount to that. Full beautification hasn't started, the TV (24") covers the bottom of the box, there is the gap at the top.
As for the ceiling conduits, front to back I was able to find where they go and use for ethernet cable and one more coax cable to the rear TV. But the unused conduits side to side appear to just go to the side of the RV and stop.
Thank you again, you were very helpful.
