TV Removal

After over 20 years as an aircraft jet engine mechanic Iím a little embarrassed to ask this but does anyone have the magic formula to remove the over the door tv in a 2017 Vegas 25-2? Iím at the point of doing a ďLockheedĒ removal but donít want to ruin it plus the spouse would not be pleased. Thanks for any assistance.

We had a 2017 Axis, but I'm sure the TV mount would be the same. On ours, there was a small lever on the mounting bracket that needed to be pushed to release the TV from the wall. I found it by taking a video behind the TV with my phone.

If your interested in an install option for that TV, take a look at post 954 in the Axis Vegas mods thread here, http://www.thorforums.com/forums/f27...go-820-48.html

It makes watching TV soooo much more comfortable.

You can use past experience in similar situations or as a comparison but RVs are a different animal. Kinda helps to write down funny solutions too.

Oh yeah, I used to have the old 'Grumman' tool with me also.

Thanks upnyfolks, appreciate the help. Iíll take a look for that lever. Must have overlooked it or maybe over thinking this whole task.

In our 2016 it is a lever and you lift UP after you "click" the lever

There are 2 levers, left and right, pull toward the rear of tv. Top of bracket sets on a horizontal bar. When you unlatch both locks, tv will pivot out. Lift up.

Second reply:
There are 2 levers about 4Ē left and right of tv center, pull toward the back of the tv.
Problem is if you have large hands, large forearms, it is very difficult to reach the levers.
Solution that I use, Iím sure there are better ways but this works for me.
Looking towards the rear of rig, there is space for your left arm to reach in behind the tv, up 3 or so inches from bottom of tv. Unlatch left latch. Now the fun, continue to look Aft, there is room just past the center of the tv to put your left arm behind tv moving right or aft and unlatch right lever. Because you have pressure on tv it will jump out towards you. It will not fall because top bar is holding tv. After your heart calms down, lift the tv up and out.
Simple the 3rd time.
Good luck

On the older Axis/Vegas there are two straps to pull; right and left that will unlatch the tv and let the bottom swing toward you, then lift tv off the wall bracket. Not sure that applies to the newer models since I see from other posts that levers have replaced the straps.
