Yep, looks like there is a cable in the back holding it down. Anyone have an idea where the other end could be attached or is this something you just have to cut?

Don't cut! It looks like a video cable. Some mounts have a "snap in" bracket. Firmly grabbing the TV from left & right sides, pull towards you. If you feel one side give more than the other side, pull a little harder on the opposite side. Hope this helps.


Happy Camping!

Just tried it. It won't move.

The cable is certainly a metal wire. There are other cables attached in the back and they are video cables. So unless I am missing something that's got to be the reason.

It's a very thin metal cable (half the gauge of the other video cables in the back) that is very tight. If I poke it with something, it shakes the TV a little.

2 thoughts.... Put your camera under and beside the TV to see if you can get clear pictures of the mount.
Also, there may be a tv mount owners manual in pack of RV paperwork. Maybe it'll show some pointers. Good luck.

That was a good idea!!

It confirms there is indeed a cable holding down the TV. Now I just got to figure how to get to the other end of the cable to disconnect it. It goes into the same hole as the video cables come from. I am thinking about taking off the radio to see if it shows were it goes.

Edit: I looked through the Docs and no information on the TV mount..Just the TV itself

Solved!

The other end of the cable was behind the radio. Once I removed the screw it was ancored to, I was able to easily lift the TV off the mount and put my HDMI cable behind it.

Thanks for the all the help everyone!
