Access to the rear of the Living Room TV

Hi, my LR TV is fastened solid to the wall cabinet with no access to the various output / input connections at the back. It is a Furion TV in my 2015 Georgetown XL 378 TS. Has anyone had any luck with plugging in components such as Apple TV?

We've got a 351DS and I have been able to get the TV out. It is a real tight fit into the bracket. BUT the one in the bedroom is fixed but I have been able to get a HDMI into a slot with just a little feeling around.

PS: We are an Apple family BUT got the Amazon Firestick - blows away my Apple TVs.

I have a 2013 378 and the only way to access the rear of the TV is to remove the screws across the top and bottom brackets. A long Phillips and a skinny magnet help. The screws are visible between the top and bottom of the TV and the trim. Tip, when you get the TV out use a good tape and tape All the connections to the back of the TV. I have had to pull mine three times to re-secure the connections that work loose when traveling.

I plugged in an HDMI cord into the side of all 3 TV's (bedroom, living room and outside) and now I can easily access music or movies on any of our devices

I have a 2014 351. On mine lift TV straight up and then out. There are 4 round pins that slide in slots mounted on wall behind TV.

How did you tie in the three HDMI cables? Did you run them to a common area?

the tv is on a mount that will allow you to pull up on the tv and remove it from the wall mount. it is a tight fit and seems like it will not come but it dose come off. then you have your access and can connect and replace the tv.

I have a 2015 Prism that has a TV in the BR. That makes 3! (Salon, outside, and BR) all in a 24 footer. We only have 1 TV at home.
Anyway, we never use the BR TV. It is attached with a bracket that sounds like the same one mentioned. There is a lever at the bottom of the bracket, which must be pushed to the side (as I remember, to the left when facing the TV.) Then the bracket slide and the attached TV can be removed for access, by sliding the TV up (it was a little hard at first).
I disconnected the TV from the bracket slide (4 little bolts) and used the bracket to mount a fan (120 volts). There is a 110 volt outlet there (for the TV) and I installed a 12 volt plug wired to the nearby fuse panel to use with a 12 volt to 120 volt inverter when 120 volts aren't available. I'd rather have the fresh air than realty shows.
