On my 2015, it was a slide/lock mount. Just pushed up on the TV...but may want to wait for response from someone with a 2021. I replaced mine with a pull out bracket so could access back and angle toward kitchen.

It it's like mine, there is a small metal swivel that locks the TV to the mount so it doesn't bounce out during travel. Use a long thin tool, I used a bread knife, reach in behind the TV and pull the swivel upwards and rotate it to one side. The TV will then slide up out of the wall bracket. It's a little tricky and takes several tries but the TV will come out.

Thank you all for useful tips. I haven't tried this yet but have been considering doing the same thing as the original poster.

Are you saying the standard TV in a FC 25FBT isn't a smart TV? I've been trying to find out more details. All I can see on the brochure is that it's an LG TV. Just put my deposit down and now trying to find out as much info about the details as I can.



I may have to put my old AppleTV in the media cabinet to replace the DVD player.

I bought a Roku 24Ē from Target to replace the bedroom tv. No issue. The 28Ē in the main area will be tougher. They donít make 28Ē any longer as standard. An easier fix is just to buy a smart roku , fire stick USB Adapter if you want to stay with TVs as is. I didnít. Two Samsungís on the same frequency is darn frustrating.

https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07CPCMY1W...ing=UTF8&psc=1Note that the audio of the stock TV is often hacked into the TV by Airstream. This is only a problem if you want the sound to come out of the speakers in the trailer. I found that weird, anyway, so installed a soundbar above the TV. If you want to do this, be sure to get a TV with optical out.

I also replaced the mount with this one. That allows the TV to swivel out for better viewing.

Mine (26U) are not. They are nice Samsungs, but no apps. Smart TV's require Wi-Fi so Airstream didn't see the added value in those.

I replaced the bedroom television in my 2020 23FB yesterday for this reason. The stock unit was an LG television without smart features. I upgraded it to a Vizio HD smart television with a Bluetooth adapter to allow me to play the sound through the Airstream audio system. Overall, it was a very simple swap. Televisions are very cheap right now, so I don’t understand why Airstream wouldn’t just install smart televisions in the first place.

Mine is a FC25 FBT. I got that idea for the microwave/counter unit from Ultimate Airstream. Since we never use that pull out bed that unit makes a huge difference to us. We have a propane oven and hence no stock microwave. This cabinet fixes that giving space for a full size one.
