Remove TV

Hello all...
Looking for help as I am trying to find out if anyone has removed their TV from their Chaparral camper. Below are 2 pictures of what I have, just trying to figure out if the TV is mounted on a bracket that has a release or not... The way it is positioned I cannot get my big noggin around it to see how its attached. I am going to try and find a hand held mirror of some sort to see if I can peek back there with it, but wanted to ask you knowledgeable folks first

Pics:


and a wider shot for another view:


Any help is appreciated!

Try lifting the TV straight up from the bottom and see if it comes free. They are usually hanging on a universal bracket.

They may have also added something to prevent the TV from jumping out of the bracket while in transit. Mine had a short length of wire cable between the TV and the backing board to prevent the TV from sliding up the bracket slots.

Using the search function on the forum, I found a similar post.

Mine has a "L" bracket that sits on top of tv mount and swings out of the way. then lift up TV when you want to remove it.

Thanks for the ideas folks, gonna be at the trailer tonight so I'll give those suggestions a try. I just didn't want to start lifting and pulling and rip the thing off the wall
I just need to remember to take a step stool and some sort of mirror to try and get a better view behind it. They way it is in the recessed compartment really makes it difficult.

Well, finally got the TV off the wall this weekend, and it was not fun.This is similar to what what the bracket looked like:


The main problem was there was a release lever on both of the vertical brackets located towards the bottom of it. This became a problem when I had to reach the release levers (at the same time) from the top of the TV. So, standing on a 3 step ladder, with my face against the camper for balance I was able to release it and not drop the TV

Hopefully this will help someone else in the future.
