Rear TV cable harness

Need help from my AI fellows!

This is a picture of the harness of my rear TV, which I removed and then decided to put back. I tried to tie the harness to foldable mount behind the display, however all my variations are making it jammed by the mount legs when folding the TV down to the wall.

Can anybody please make photopictures of your TV mount with tied up harness how the Airstream originally made it?

Thanks in advance!

In our TV mount, the cables run through the hollow hinge arm itself and thus do not get squashed by it.

Bear in mind that ours is a 2007 model and this is the equipment that Airstream was installing at that time. Looking at your photo, I'm glad we didn't decide to upgrade the mount.

Nice! That mount in your 2007 looks a lot better than the one in my 2013. Is it made from aluminum?

The parts that the wires go through, yes. Extruded.

The original Interstates from that time period came with big honking analog Sony TVs, bulkier and heavier than the newer slim digitals. That was likely the motivation for the heavier mounting hardware. I sold our original TV for ten bucks to some guy who wanted to cobble together a garage TV setup for himself.

90* connectors usually will facilitate coax routing behind TVs.

I thought at least one piece of that harness consisted of the RG-6 or RG-59 coax. Since it's stiffer than the audio wiring, the 90* connectors usually allow it to route easier.
