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.

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 .

I have the same TV bracket as LilBigfoot in post #2 in my 2017 26U FC bedroom. How do you adjust it so that the TV has tension to keep it from pointing / tilting downward. I tried to adjust allen head set screws but to no avail. The manual probably tells but so often this forum has simpler, easier to understand solutions to problems. Thanks for any help.

I believe it is the allen screw on the part of the mount with the curved edge near the back of the TV. You may need a wrench on both sides of it and it may feel pretty tight already but you can snug it up more. Make sure you have the TV in position prior to tightening - an extra set of hands would help here.

Thanks, 'Nerd. I'll give this a try. I knew it would be simple.

It may be worth your while to buy individual Allen wrenches to get the leverage you need to make up that joint more tightly IMO, as opposed to the small sets of Allen wrenches which are fastened together as a set. We have a set of T-handled ones you can really crank on. Sears used to sell plastic bagged sets of individual wrenches which would also let you get some leverage on both sides of that joint.

Good luck!

PS -- Edit -- Ours does look like the photo in Post #2, but it does not accept an Allen wrench on both sides. You may have to use a Vise-grip to grab the bolt head on the back side, although there is not much of one sticking up. If the Allen wrench makes the other side spin, without tightening things up, you may have to replace the bolt with a custom set up which permits a tool to hold each end of things.

OTRA15 - you are so right on the allen wrench comment. I've got both. The folding combo set is good only for things like adjusting the mirror on a bicycle!!! I have some of each, including a T-handle set in a Sears socket / allen combo pack.

I was able to cinch down the TV tilt bracket in the bedroom of my 2017 26U FC today. I found 2 set screws, one on top and bottom, taking a 1/8" allen to loosen before I could use the 5/16" allen to tighten the pivot point. Extra hands do help, but you can lean a bit on the TV to keep it in position to tighten. OTRA15s advice on a proper allen wrench is useful, too. Thanks!!
