Bedroom TV

I have a 2020 KSSB4 and I would like to change bedroom TV to smart TV but have no clue how to get the TV off the wall.

That looks exactly like the TV mount/enclosure for our main TV. Look up from the bottom for two straps that when pulled release the bottom catches that allow you to lift the TV up, off the upper mount.

If it has an HDMI port then I would just buy a Roku and plug it in. Way better than a smart tv. The Roku works great and has easy to use straight forward menus. The smart tv will have hundreds of icons and no reasonable way to organize them to the small number that you will actually use. I hate our smart tv in the living area at home but love the tv in the office on the Roku and also the one in the motorhome on a Roku.

I looked for release straps but I can’t see them and I can’t even get my fingers between the tv and the box.

Found one. I swapped out for Insignia 32 in smart TV to match the fireTV OS from the living room. Note the strap is tied to the upper spring loaded bar. I did have to adjust the bracket location on the shelf to get to fit

So, I should be able to push up on the tv and springs should compress allowing me to roll the bottom out?

For some reason not quite that easy. I pull hard down on the strap and it swings out from the top. It has to get past two detents I think. One Hand on strap one hand on tv. I’ve tried other ways like pushing up and swing the bottom out first but seems more difficult to me. Try both ways!

If you go with the insignia 32 in, you will have to go to Home Depot for different size screws.

I don't think I have a choice. I can't find any kind of strap on mine. I just looked at a video on e-trailer for that mount and it shows to just push up and swing the bottom out. Wish me luck!

My Insignia Fire TV's came with screws. (Far superior to the Axxera & Seiki OEM TV's)

You may regret having the same model TV in the bedroom and the living room. When you turn one off, the remote might turn the other one on.

Yup. Most of the small smart TVs of that size don't have any or much memory on-board, it will download the app every time you open one and will be horribly slow to use.

I have switched between Roku, Google TV, and Apple TVs. For generic needs, one of the higher-quality Rokus is ideal (get the upper-priced "stick" style so you don't have to mount a device on the back). They work really well and are very reliable.

The common brand TVs will easily be controlled by the Roku's remote too - so you won't need multiple remote controls. It's a $50 solution and a lot less hassle.

As far as Roku, et al, I'm using an old Apple TV box and it works well. However, the sound on the "inexpensive" (cheap as dirt) RV television is poor. I'm thinking of attaching small clip-on speakers. Do I try that or look for a better television? BTW, we rarely use the tv and mainly as a way to view photos from our phones. I also hooked up an old DVD player, for those rainy indoor days!

I have an Apple TV in my office- it connects to a Bluetooth speaker fine, and I also have one of the AirPod Mini things - that works as well, but the sound quality isn’t as good - but the AirPod Minis can be “paired” into left/right and a single connection to the Apple TV.

Getting the TV off the bracker

In my Axis 24.1, I swapped one of the LG Smart TV's for a Samsung Smart TV I already had in order to get a better picture. That worked well.

But, to get the LG off the bracket I had to feel along the lower back of the TV and about 1/3 of the distance in from each side I felt two levers. These levers had to be pushed either to the sides of the TV or to the center. The TV then swung toward me from the bottom and I was then able to lift it off the bracket at the top.

Moving the mount to my Samsung and putting it in place on the wall mount was a snap, pun intended. It CAN be done by one person, but I would suggest having a second set of hands for wire/cable handling.

If yours is like mine, you'll not have a whole lot of room to get your fingers up and onto those little levers.

Hope you get it squared away.

TV mounts

If you get down on your knees and pray to Dr. Google, you might eventually get a correct answer. I had to give up my first child to find an answer. TV mounts should be consistent for all RVs. It is completely ridiculous.
