    Removing Estone Surround Sound/Radio/DVD system

    I plan on removing the Estone system and installing a 3D Blu-Ray DVD Surround System in our 369RL Solitude. If anyone has information on how to remove it (without trashing the cabinet), I would be interested. I can only see the staples at the top, above the unit that holds the trim in place. Is there a way to remove the "wood-work" and not destroy it?

    Looking at the picture of the stereo on the Grand Design web site I see 4 screws holding the stereo in place. They take a small square driver.

    Welcome to the forum GaryLee! Robert is right, there are four screws that hold the unit in place. Remove them and it slides right out.

    Hiya GaryLee and welcome to the forums! Ditto what Steve said, unless you have a newer Solitude and they've made changes. I've had mine since Aug, 2013 and Steve has had his longer. I doubt that's a change they made, but you never know!

    Thanks for the help; I have removed it and found the screws holding the "wood-work" (side braces holding the unit in place). I also discovered the system has no center speaker and no sub-woofer. What a disappointment. Info to others; there are 4 screws on each side holding the side brace (2 top and 2 bottom) at sharp angles and difficult to remove (at least for us non-handyman types). There are also 3 staples on both outside edges from the adjacent cabinet. Once removed, the speakers are labelled with connections to the four downstairs speakers (A), two bedroom speakers (B), and two outside speakers (C). I am not positive of the B and C labels since I have not tried the connections. I plan on adding a center speaker and a sub-woofer (probably behind the fireplace) to the new system. Thanks again!

    What are you planning on replacing it with?

    I had a Samsung 3D Blu-ray DVD player with surround sound from our previous camper that I will be installing.

    Is it the same size as the estone unit?

    No, the Samsung is much wider and just fits into the cabinet with the wood brackets removed. It is so wide that I had to remove the cabinet door to install it. It is a tight fit and not going anywhere when we travel.
