Remove tv in bedroom, infinity 3750FL

So fellow fellow campers, lovers of things on two, 4, or 6 wheels. I would like to add a surround sound to the bedroom tele but cant figure out how to remove the tv. I have pulled, shoved, jerked pryed and tryed every which way to remove it but alas no such luck.


any of yous guys got any ideas?

I've already had that problem and almost busted mine off the wall trying to get it loose. Right of center and about 5" from the bottom there is a lever that needs to be depressed. It moves toward the back of the set and not the wall. Come in from the right side with a butter knife, ruler or something similar and try and depress the lever. The set will release from the bottom and then lift off. Once you have it out you will see how it works. I'm going to add an extension to the lever to make it easier it remove. Just another well engineered component of the 3750FL.

Good luck
Jeff

Thank you Jeff, I will give that a try in a few minutes. I may even take a picture of what I find and how I make it easier to remove. Thanks again.

the Voltages also have the same type lever. I can just wiggle my fat hand behind the tv and depress the lever. The TV will lift right off. Its the same set up in my Garage bay. Its tight and if your wife has smaller hands she might get behind the TV better.

She has bigger hands than I do! Owwwwwww, I am only joking dear. The frying pan hurts in the morning!

I may have to get one of the grand kids to do it. I figured that was the case. Thanks again.

But the 3800 Voltage has a handy dandy hand hole in the shelf so you can wiggle your fatty up there easier than doing it from behind.

That's an idea, the hole. I have a chain saw. Hmmmm.

Here is what I have done. The first picture shows a small cable that I swedged to the lever. It hangs down so you can reach it under the TV. When you pull it depresses the lever and lets you remove the TV. After I got it done I thought, you know a fishing leader would do the same thing and be a lot easier! Sometimes you have to do it the hard way. The second picture just shows a couple zip (electrical) ties going through the back grill and holding the power cord in place. I think the power cord could easily come loose bouncing down the road.
