Talking Bedroom TV release on 2014 FC 25RB

Newbie here- just purchased a used 2014 AS trailer and can't figure out how to get the TV screen in the bedroom to unlock from the "storage" position. It appears to have an articulating arm. I tried to find an answer by searching for it but to no avail. Original owner never used it.

If it's like ours, there is a strap that you pull down on to release it.

I have the same problem with our 2014 25FB. I contacted the manufacturer and was told to pull down the strap. Well, I'm either gonna break the strap or pull the setup off the wall trying that suggestion. I got shuffled off to someone else in the company and then I apparently disappeared so still don't have an answer.

I plan to take a hex wrench to the pivot bolts soon. I'm thinking I need to get to the chrome pin the strap is attached to and free it somehow.

My was tied in a knot and after several times I got the knot un-tied and then a easy plus down to release.

We have the same setup. Try putting a little silicone lubricant on the pin and release mechanism, this will help it slide out and also stow easier.

Lightly lube the catch mechanisms with anything handy. I've used hand lotion, liquid soap, or mineral oil with great results.

Try this

Try gently pushing on the front of the TV ias you pull down on the strap -
that was my solution (after a month)!

raschmidt1, THANK YOU! By pushing the top bracket arm towards the wall, I was able to release the lock pin by pulling the strap down.

Rambo Engineering - the bracket manufacturer - deserves a hearty, "Booooooo!" for apparently deciding my issue was not important enough to follow through with me.

I had the same problem and it took me a call to the dealer to figure out. In my case, wiggling the TV a bit helps. Very poor design.

Try lifting up on the TV while pulling
down on the strap. I learnt this after 4 years of struggling

Wait until you pull it all the way out and then try to figure out which bracket folds in first to get it back in place. :-)
