Awesome question!! I would like to know as well. So far to me it appears you have to practically dismantle the section of cabinetry. I want to hook up a Blu-Ray.

I'll address this to Chalkie because we also have a 3640RL, but a 2012 model. In mine, the TV is on one of those swing-out brackets with an elbow that allows you to point the TV in different directions. You just pull on the TV and it should come out enough to get at the wiring and plus in the back. The sound system (both my TV and sound system are Samsung) is affixed at the bottom edge with Velcro. You just lift it in the front and the whole unit comes out. Is yours different?

I'll have to go over to the storage place and check this out. I would like to have something installed before we head out next. Velcro on the edge... who'd a thunk??

Let me know what you find .... and by the way, there was a typo in my original response. It should have read '...... it should come out enough to get at the wiring and plugs (not plus) in the back'.

We have the Infinity 3800FB and the TV is mounted the same as it is in the front living room model. The dealer was no help when I asked them how to remove the TV. I was in the front living room model at the dealer and was able to remove the TV so I know it can be done. You have to push in on the TV and pull up at the same time. I have tried to get mine loose so I could replace the arm with one that will swing out but I haven't been able to get it loose. I'm afraid to push hard because I don't want to break the TV. The TV in the bedroom is mounted the same way and I have been able to remove it from the mounting bracket. Here's a picture of the mounting bracket.

Velcro under the Dvd player. Dumbest installation I've ever seen. To get it out take a couple of thin spatulas or a thin sheet of flashing (sheet metal) and slide betwwen layers of velcro. Work it around and the Dvd player will come out. No need to do any disassembly. After removing remove the full length piece of Velcro and replace with a couple of small pieces at either end. This will make it easy to remove in the future. You'll probably find the FM antenna bundled behind the unit. Stretch it out and the FM reception will be much better. And we paid how much for this quality?

I am thinking a little to much. By the way do you have a bedroom air and a kitchen air? How well is your kitchen air working?

Also, what does your "airbox" in the kitchen look like?

How is the air flow in the slot vents in the wood corbel or what ever they call it, is there very much coming from there?

I think I am going to try a small cookie sheet and work it between the velcro.

Due to "circumstances", haven't used the trailer much yet. It's been in a resort park in Washington where we don't use the A/C much. In this climate the a/c has been adequate. Airflow from the slot vents isn't real strong but seems to do the job, again in this climate.
And anything pretty thin that will fit between the velcro strips will work. I finally got a piece of roof flashing and cut it to the width of the dvd player. Worked it in to release the full strip of velcro at once and pulled out the DVD player.
