Television mount adjustments

The television mount in my 2014 FC 20 has been stiff and unpleasant to move around. Since you are grasping the television itself, it is possible to break it. In addition, I had not found a swivel to allow it to be tilted. Last trip out I looked at it in detail.

The pin which holds the mount slides into a very tight fitting hole. I finally wound up taking a rat tail file and enlarging the hole slightly. See photos 1 and 2. The frame was very stiff and I found that I could adjust the tension on it, making it easier to move. You need to be careful, it can get sloppy fast. See photo 1 again. There is a tilt function, yea! There is a pin on a ring which can be pulled out and the entire television will tilt downwards. See photos 3 and 4. For storage, tilt back up and replace the pin and ring.

I also noted that the power supply on the Samsung television supplied in my rig is a 14 volt one, so any of you who are adventuresome might want to try to see if it would work on 12 volts. I have not done that and probably will not. See photo 2 and you can note the wire showing a 14 volt supply.

I hope these ideas will make the television more useful to you.

Idroba, you just made my day!

Picked up our 2014 25fb FC a few days ago and are having trouble with the bedroom tv mount. We cannot get it to pull out and extend the arm. At all.

Is it just that sticky? Is there a locked position?

Even our sales guy was unable to help. Can you?

Anyone else have this problem?

Exactly Landrum, I am in the same boat.

Anyone have any guidance on this? Tricks to get the BR TV mount unstuck?

As always, thank you.

Try pulling down the strap. It releases a spring loaded button. It should move quite easily after that. You wouldn't want it to move too easily though. Being a bit stiff is good.

Yes, pull on the strap, but it may be very very hard to get it loose. It is a real PITA. Be careful you don't break the TV while pulling on it to get it to move. Miserable thing to get out. But don't make it too loose either. It will flop around then. I had to adjust it several times to get it just right. And, you may have to file the hole on the lock button as I did as it is just too damn close fitting.

In the upper left photo of the original post there is a gold grommet which is attached to the pin and to a strap below. Does yours have that? It is below my hand holding the wrench.

Okay I finally got it. There is a strap that is attached to a locking pin. You have to pull down very very hard to pull the pin down.Click image for larger version

Does anyone know the brand and/or model of this TV mount. I'd like to add a bedroom TV to my FC 20 with this same mount. Also, I'd like any advice as to attaching the mount to the wooden wall vs. the outside wall of the trailer.

Thanks,

Glenn T.

Thumbs up LCD storage

Just what I do....

LCD--- LIQUID, (as in freezing), Crystal Display

I called Samsung and asked for the limits for "do not operate in extreme temp variations" that was given in OP manual. They were unable to pin it down.


So as a result,

Here in WNY.....I bring our Samsung inside during storage.

Yes you can run the t.v on 12.8 volts from your airstream battery ,I'm in the process of getting a plug that fits the t.v. ,its a really weird plug with a center pin ! I have seen this plug on some sony Bluetooth speakers, still looking for it!
