Access to slide motor and TV brkt in BR

I have a 2015 Sightseer 35G, whe reading the lit. it shows how to manually crank in the slides, I have looked under all three slides and I see nothing in the compartments that work the slides. In my National Sea Breeze, they were visable from the storage compartment. I cannot find them. also, I am trying to remove the TV in the bedroom with no luck. The whole compartment behind the TV is waisted space, I wanted to replace the mounting bracket with one that slides out like the living room. Unfortuantely, when reaching behind it I accidently pulled the power plug. Now it is dead and I cant reach behind to hook it up. There must be a latch somewhere that I cannt find . Anyone know how this tv comes out?

PhilNDenise, The drawing below is from the back. From the bottom remove the two screws in the bottom bracket. Swing the bottom out and lift up.

PhilNDenise, The crank in instructions are for the left front power gear slide only. The other two slide outs are LIPPERT in wall systems which require man power to push the slides in after the motors have been lifted.

TV Mount

Thanks for the pictures grtharris; but I have been trying to locate the screws for over two hours and my arms are all scratched up. there are two holes that look like they may be access but lying on my back on the bed and using a light I can not find them. I have felt around with a long handled screwdriver and I don't believe any screws are there. there appears to be two screws on the back at the bottom center, I cannot see them but I can feel them but access to them is almost impossible, I would need a ratchet screw driver at right angles. NO luck. This has got to be the worst tv mount made. \\

Also, the slide is a Power Gear on the front drivers side but I still do not see any access to the gears or motors at all.

Yesterday I found a large 4 X 6 hole in the floor that goes down to the storage bay where the water and sewer are connected. Some wires coming through but seems easy access for critters. I think I will use some expanding foam and fill it up.

The hole in the floor is in all likelihood for getting either heat into or return air out of the compartment. Most Winnebago products have "heated storage compartments". Heat from the propane furnace is circulated through the compartments.

If you look at the online plumbing and electrical diagrams you'll see there are several similar sized holes under the cabinetry to allow warm air to circulate through the water and storage compartments.
