Anybody upgraded the outside TV on 2014 Challenger 37KT?

The factory TV is 26in and that's not big enough and during the daytime it's hard to see, since it can't be articulated . I would love to see your pic's if you have done this mod.

Thanks

I started my upgrade to the outside TV today. I plan on putting a VIZIO 32 LCD TV and 29' VIZO sound bar to replace the the 26' Jenson TV , Jenson Radio and Speakers . I will also have a TV mount that will tilt down for better viewing.

This is what I started with :


Had to remove the couch in living room


removed wiring access panels behind the couch :


Removed the counter top behind the couch:

Had to take off the outside hatch so you can access all 8 screws that hold the inner frame to the wall.



once the screws are out you can pick the frame out from the inside through the top of the cabinet that had the counter top on it.

Here is a the inner boxed removed .



I will start my plans on the new box. I will update this as I go .

Well here is the finished product. I'm just waiting on 2 ball joint brackets to come in from KENCO. I couldn't get the old brackets off because they put on with some sort of spline bolt. I contacted KENCO and they are sending me 2 brackets for FREE !!

Thanks !!! I built the new box from plywood and 2 x 4's, then I covered it in speaker carpet. The new TV mount is nice its it will tilt up and down for better viewing. I reused all the weather seals from the old box.
