Question About TV Mounts

Hello, we are new the forum and new RV owners. We just purchased an Voltage 3600 and are very please with it and excited to take it out (more than just the 1300 miles to get it home).

I did have a question though, is there a trick to getting the TV off the mount or how does everyone hook up equipment without getting to the back of it? There was no DVD player or stereo head unit so we want to add those items and the cables to run an IPad off of it but haven't been able to figure it out.

Thanks in advance!!

Our RUbicon TV came with a build in DVD, what kind of TV do you have?

I have not tried taking the TV off the mount so I'm sorry can't help with that!

We have two televisions in our unit. One in the livingroom. The second is in the bedroom.

The one in the livingroom is a large screen television and is on an aluminum bracket with four alum. pegs that stick out from the wall. The television bracket slides down over them. When we travel there is a wrap around tie that we clip. This will stop it from jumping out of the aluminum pegs while traveling.

The television in the bedroom slides down on a protruding rail in the back. There is a lever underneath that is hard to get at behind the television to lock and unlock.

I believe that Dutchmen is not consistant on their mounting brackets for the tv's that are installed in their campers.

I would suggest that you call the dealer that you purchased from and ask them how it operates. Or, ask a local dealer closer to you.

By the way, welcome to the site!

Within our Voltage we have 4 tv's in our unit. The one outside if I remember right is a slot with holes in it. The bedroom and bay have a smaller tv with a lever on the rear to release the mount. Its really hard to get to but once u find it the tv will release off the mount. The den I dunno. I have never had it off but given the size of it i suspect it will either be a slotted mount or a clamp with set screws like at home. For those who want to know why its because the speakers are mounted around the tv and it looks like a lot of trouble to take it off.

The living room and outside TVs simply slide up and pull out. The front bedroom and garage TVs have a release lever. There is a notch in the lower shelves where you can peek with a flashlight. Once you release the lever, the TV hinges up then out.

Does anyone know who manufactures the brackets for the outside TV? I am trying to mount a different TV and the little screws and plastic rings that hang the tv on the back plane bracket don't fit the new TV.

I don't think the brackets for the living room and outside TV's are manufactured specifically as TV mounts. I just googled a variety of "keyhole wall mounts" and didn't see anything that looks like our mounting brackets. I wouldn't be surprised if Dutchmen didn't make this up themselves. It's just two strips of aluminum with keyholes spaced properly and screwed to a block of wood.
