I may have to investigate something more secure, for peace of mind if nothing else.
I would be interested in what you find to relace the existing mount.

This sounds like the same mount I have. My "safety cable" was so feeble that I thought it was a ground until it tore right out of the wall. It was fastened to the paneling with a single screw...pathetic.

My TV mount is attached to a very secure board. My plan is to fabricate a "hold down" using a piece of wood, studs, and wing nuts fastened to the top of the board. It may be awhile until I get around to this as my rig is parked at the moment several hours away, but when I do this project I will take some pictures.

If it is like ours there is actually a board above the mount that we has to unscrew & then the TV lifted right off the mount. We are assuming the board was put there to hold the TV on the mount if we hit a bump.

No it came off with very minor force, I didn't feel like I would break anything. I get my trailer back tomorrow from the dealer and I will take a couple pictures if you haven't figured it out yet.

Nope. Just lift up, tip the top toward you (me!) slightly, and lift again. Scary.

I posted a picture of the back of my TV and the wall mount. I put them in my photo album on this forum. Hope this helps you. Sorry I didn't know how to put the picture on this forum

It is a bear to remove from the mount. The mount is solid aluninum with 2 slots for the pins on the TV to slide into. It is a friction fit and the more bouncing the TV gets the firmer it gets wedged into the mount. We just drove 3,000km and some of the roads were so bad my wife was crying because of the jarring her back took and it dislodged the GPS from the windows suction unit. The TV has not moved at all so I sure would not worry about it coming out of it's mount. And you really have to work at lifting it up to get it off the mount, I was concerned I was going to crack the screen at one point.
