It's been a few years since I removed my Era tv but as I remember it was fairly easy. Everything was accessible from the outside facing cabinet. I left all the wires intact, as i remember everything just plugged in. For The hole I used a sink faucet hole cover.
It looked so much better with that tv gone.

I was just out starting to get mine ready to head south in a few weeks and I took a look under the TV. It appears that they installed a panel in the top of the cabinet that would need to be removed to access the underside of the TV mount. I think this is what slowed me down when I first thought about removing it. While the added counter space would be nice it turns out we do tend to catch up on the news in the evening using that TV so I left it in.

My plan on my 2017 era was to remove it from the counter then rehang it above from the rounded corner cabinet.

Kinda like what WGO did in the 170m.

I removed the TV from my counter in my 2016 ERA 170A and purchased a rubber hole plug at my local True Value Hardware store that fit the larger hole perfectly. I did this about two years ago and have really enjoyed the much larger countertop surface and watch TV in the rear sleeping area, if I need TV.

How involved was removing the shelf under the tv?

Default Removing TVt

Yes, I took mine off the counter and remounted it on the end of the overhead kitchen cabinet. It is still readily viewable from the seats inside and I have no intention of watching it from outside.
I had the hole in the counter repaired at a Corian shop, not a perfect match but close enough.i mount my suction cup paper towel holder over the hole repair.

Before you do this, thump yourself in the head with teh TV a few times to make sure you like the feeling.

This is exactly what I did. I even padded the bottom corners with grey foam pipe insulation. I haven' hit it yet and am contemplating removing the padding. Viewing is much better and the counter space is marvelous.

Thank you for you comments. I removed the tv by taking out the plywood under the counter which is held up by staples and disconnected the wires and removed the stand. Restapled the plywood.
