Hi,
We've the proud owners of a Monaco Knight and I'm always wary about doing DIY work just in case they turn into DIY bodges.
I want to run some cables from the overhead locker down to the dashboard. I'm junking the 240v DVD player and installing a dashboard radio/dvd player instead. While I'm at it going to connect a 12v PC to a new touchpanel display. The PC will act as a video recorder, give internet access and run sat nav but I'll also run reversing camera and blind spot camera into the screen.
Ok, the point of this rambling! Has anyone ever taken the windscreen trim off? (what I'd describe as the A pillar). There only appears to be one screw at the bottom and the rest of it seems to held in place by the windscreen rubber. Is it really as simple and straightforward as that or do Monaco fit the trim and then put the windscreens in on top of it! Do I just take the screw out and start pulling? Can I buy a replacement from anywhere other than Travelworld!!
Any advice will be gratefully received.

Regards
Doug

Hi Doug
Its where you will find most of the cables running, On my RV they are made of substsantial leather covered wood, if yours are light weight plastic take care they become brittle after a time, but yes its that simple, had mine off more times than I care to remember, why would you need replacments, take your time all should be well

Hi Geo,
Yep, it is plastic and although it looks fairly flexible I'm ham-fisted enough to damage something. I really couldn't bear being told (again) I told you so.
So I think I'll go up to the compound at the weekend and try really, really carefully to liberate it from the side window frame and windscreen rubbers.
Thanks for the words of encouragement.

Doug

Hi Doug

We have a Monaco Windsor and the side windscreen trim on mine is not held in by the windscreen rubber at all it is a snug fit against it! The trim is held in by several capped screws and slid in behind the windowframe.

Mine was very easy to remove when I altered the TV cabinet and fitted power visors.

Regards Pat

Yerr i notice all the insulation tape on your screen pillars with an array off leads hanging out.

Thought it probably wasn't original:winky::ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO:
