2016 Rockwood Mini Lite 2506S

Hello ALL,

I'm new to the forum and I have a couple of questions for any other owners of a 2016 Rockwood Mini Lite 2506S. Does any one knows if the door on the corner stand in the bedroom actually opens or it's just for looks? It has hinges but it seems very hard and I don't want to force it open.

The other question is how to remove the tv from the entertainment center on the wall. I've looked at a lot of videos but it seems the tv bracket on the outside of the my 2506s is different (V shape) than any other I've seen on Rockwood Mini Lites (two holes).

Thank you in advance for any replies.

Looking at pics of your TT on-line, I see you have some outside connections on the street side at your corner stand. I'm guessing your door doesn't "normally" open. Look carefully. Forest River likes to make doors that have two hinges on one side, as you'd expect, but then they put another hinge on the other side so you can't open the door without removing the extra hinge. My 2503S has this on one of the doors under the bathroom sink. The water heater and bypass valves are behind it. Also has one for access to my slide controller.

It looks like your water heater is in the nightstand to the right of your bed. I'm betting if there's an access door on the night stand, it's got 3 hinges, too. (Unless you can get to it from your outside kitchen somehow.

Can't comment on the TV. I've never tried to remove mine.

I've looked at the connections and you're adsolutely correct, the corner stand houses the cable / tv connections.

I'll try to figured out how the tv comes off the bracket on the wall. There's not a lot of room behind it so I can't see if there's something holding it from the factory since it is a new camper.

Thank you for reply.

The arm the television is mounted on is secured with magnets. It takes a heck of a tug to break them loose. Once you've pulled the tv away from the wall, just push up from the bottom. This may also take a bit more force than you're comfortable with the first few times. I still freak out after 6 months and multiple trips out.

After a while and using a flashlight I was able to figured out about the magnets and did exactly as you suggested. It also took me a while to figured out that I needed to disconnect the purple cable from back of the tv and use another cable and connected to auxiliary cable/satellite connection on top of the tv to get my cable tv to work.

Thanks to for your reply and suggestions.
