TV Mount - not moving

I am having difficulty moving the TV wall mount in the bedroom of our 2015 International 25FB.

The tv turns slightly on the mount, but the arm won't extend completely.
I feel like I am missing something.
Does anyone have any tips on how to move tv into viewing position?

Thanks!!

Look for a strap behind TV and pull straight down on it. Here's my front TV. This will release the pin and TV will angle outwards. Can be tough on the small bedroom TV.

Here's a photo of the rear of the bedroom TV. You can see the strap and release mechanism. That pin can get sticky, so a shot of oil does wonders for loosening it up. A sharp pull straight down on the strap also helps.

These are some of the GREAT THINGS the dealership forgot to show you.

3n1 oil ok ? Thanks Cleecooper for posting . Lol I jumped right on this post cause I have been staring at TV hoping it would open all on its own .

Will TV run off inverter ? I have a plug right behind TV so I thought it would but doesn't come on . But this is actually the first time I have tried TV .

Yes to the oil or even WD40.

Did you turn the inverter on? The plug has to be connected to the inverter and AS usually puts a blue sticker on the plug indicating it accesses the inverter. You also have to program each TV to get over the air channels or cable stations if you're hooked up to a TV cable service. Do this through the menu of each TV.

I had lights on so I know I had inverter on but nothing camped on . Also plugged into plug with blue sticker , even tried other one just in case LOL . At work tonite so I'll go out tomorrow to see if I can program but I did not see anything light up ... after a short trip I found the cover of TV had popped off - it did snap right back on . Thanks !! Hopefully programming will work ...

Ok . Batteries good cause remote lights up . Can I use the CGFI tester dealer gave me to see if that inverter plug is getting power ? I have not tried the TV since I bought trailer so IDK if it's TV or a power issue . Thanks .

If you decide to lubricate it, recommend you use silicone spray. There are some rubber bushings in there. You can also use silicone grease. Available at HD or Lowe's.

Nininet, the lights work off 12v battery, they would come on without nverter coming on.

Thanks BAB !
Oh , I thought they worked off inverter when not hooked to shore power . I tried a small lamp in all the inverter outlets and when none would light it up I thought it meant that something was wrong . So the inverter works off shore power ? I thought I was supposed to use them when boondocking . I checked the breaker and fuses and all were okay but one was inserted wrong - the top prong of a 15 amp fuse was not in slot , the bottom prong was . No damage from that possibly ?
Guess it's a trip up to a park to hook up to power tomorrow to see what really works .
