Remove TV from 2015 Silverback 31RK

Hello all,

I'm trying to help a neighbor with a 2015 Silverback 31RK. He needs to remove his living room TV from the wall mount bracket. We can't see behind the TV so we can't tell if it's bolted, slide-on mounts, etc. Can anyone tell me what he needs to do to remove the TV or point me to an appropriate resource at Cedar Creek?

Stumbled on this once when I was streaming off my fone to the tv.
I used a mini usb to hdmi cable. Set the fone on camera video mode. I think the fone prompts you if I remember right when its plugged in. (so display it to the tv)
Now the video of the fone is displayed on the tv. May have to fiddle around a bit with it.
Might be worth a try to look around in the back of the tv

Unless someone on here knows what kind of mount release you have.
Good luck

Have a 2014 Silverback 33RL.....I've removed our TV by pushing up....ours is a slide-on mount.....was afraid in the beginning because it was taking a lot of upward pressure but it finally released.....had that fear I was about to break something....good luck.

The tv brackets are stiff metal. You have to lift both sides at the same time with considerable upward pressure. Sometimes a bump from palm of hands is necessary. When up, the tv pops right off. Ez off and ez back on. Helps to have 2 to re install. Only because you need to align both sides at the same time, once in the holes on each side, pull down. Here again, light bump from palm helps. These modern tv's are more rugged than one may think. You will not be knocking anything loose. Go for it!
On the bigger LR tv, be prepared to balance or have someone to detach any cables. Really no big deal.

Mine has a pull chain on both sides behind the TV. Reach behind the TV on both sides, feel for chains, pull down on the chains, pull out the bottom of the TV, it should move forward. Then lift the TV slightly to remove the mounting bracket on the TV off the wall mount bracket, then carefully remove the TV. Just remember you have to disconnect the power and any other connections to fully remove the TV. Hope this helps.

We had so much trouble getting the plugins and cords we replaced the standard holder with a pullout one and it is now so easy.. The tv did just lift off but was a two person job. Love the new fix

No one mentioned the "L" bracket screwed into the wall that prevents the TV from moving up off of the bracket. Unscrew the "L" bracket off the wall first. It does take a lot of force to then push the TV up off of the bracket. The bracket has keyhole slots so once you move it up 2" you can then pull it forward toward you and away from the bracket.
