I’ve mentioned several times previously that my rig came with FOUR TV’s !! Why on earth anybody would want or need FOUR TV’s in their rig is beyond me ! But to each their own.
The TV in the main living area (over the dash) rattles and shakes like crazy when I’m driving. Drives me nuts. But this trip North that I-65/69 that I took was really bad and the TV was rattling so much I was beginning to fear it was going to fall down on top of me.
I swore that as soon as I got settled – and had an extra set of hands to help me – out it was coming !!
So when Linda & Guy visited the other day that’s exactly what happened.
Certainly didn’t take long to get that baby out. Four screws went through the bracket into the TV and then there was a strap/screw holding each side to the bracket. One of these straps was broken off !!
OK, So now the ‘easy’ part is done.
I taped up all those hanging wires so they won’t go banging around the next time I’m driving.
And then I put the 4 screws back into the bracket and taped them there. If I didn’t do that I’d never find them again. You see I have a tendency to put things in a very safe place for when I might need them next – never to be able to find them again !!
Now what to do with that big awful opening ?? Not being one for an ‘original’ idea, I simply STOLE from what DIANNE & TOM did when they took out their TV.
Off to Michaels I went and got this Foam Board.
The width was fine but the height was just a little too long so I had to cut some of it off.
“Measure twice – cut once” – At $28.24 for a sheet of this stuff I certainly didn’t want to screw up.
All cut to size and now getting ready to use those double sided adhesive strips.
I just love these Command products. I’ve used them in the rig to hang everything I have. No more nails for me.
No doubt way too many strips on it but I wanted to make sure it would hold securely. This Foam Board is very, very light but better to be on the safe side.
VOILA ! DONE !!
DIANNE I simply couldn’t resist taking this pic !! LOL
Another job checked off my never ending list of things TO DO.
