It's plugged into a receptacle on the other side of the wall. You may need to remover drawers to get to it.

Thank You, I will check it out tomorrow. I not using it so I thought I would just unplug it instead of having it draw power for no good reason.

If it is set up like our Outlaw RV, when not on shore or generator power, it will only work if the inverter is turned on. Check it out.

IMHO, I do not believe it is using any unnecessary power when it is not turned on. So, I would not worry about it if you are thinking that your electric bill is climbing while that television is plugged in, and not turned on being used.

So unless you want it out so you can sell it, it's kind of a moot point to worry about.

We bought our MH in 2015. I think I turned on the TV once to see if it worked. It did. Never opened the cabinet again. I suppose I could remove it and store Slim Jims in the cabinet.

Thank All of you for your help. I did find the hidden outlet so I just unplugged. I'm not removing it just wanted to unplug it, so all is well.

I always wanted to make that space a tool box

That would be a perfect location for a tool box. I don't know how deep the space is. I carry about 100 pounds of tools in the trailer. Also a bottle jack, air compressor, and air hose.

In my case, I removed the TV and used the space to route wiring for my solar and inverter installations, including the inverter itself. I liked the proximity the the batteries. I have a 2016 24.2, so I have a dining table and chairs on the opposite side of the wall and I installed the solar controller adjacent to one of the chairs. All is easily accessible. Works for me.

I wish the TV was much lower to view. People who design RV's must be 7 to 8 ft tall. They are the same ones that put the TV up in a top cabinet. Old people do not like to look up and crank their neck to watch TV. We never have purchased an ergonomicly incorrect design. We do use the outdoor TV for watching MLB in the summer. Keep the volume low and if the wife is in the rig, I use blue tooth head phones. She hates them.

Iím 68 and my TV in a upper bedroom cabinet is just fine in height. There are some older folks that donít mind looking up.

68 years old, 68 inches or 6'-8"?

Not only does having to look up make my neck sore, but there is the added difficulty of aligning the proper section of the graduated lenses in my glasses. But with waist level wall space at a premium in an RV, I guess I can understand why the TVs are mounted high.

I am 75 years old and 6'-4". In other words, an old fart.

There are some RV's that have the TV across from the couch with a fireplace and some without a fireplace. Bedroom TV's placed high is good for viewing while in bed, but the living room! The RV's are designed by people who never owned or rented an RV to see what their crappy layouts do to the user. Now I do realize that some only like to dry camp so they do not care. More power to them. I was done with dry camping after the tent trailer. We had it for nine years and did enjoy it.
