King Aire Bedroom TV

Anyone know how to get the bedroom TV pulled back or out from the wall? I need to check the connections at the back of the TV and the Bose Solo 5 and can not figure out how the TV is mounted. Newmar says it is on a swing bracket that is held in position by magnets, but if that is true, these are the strongest magnets I have ever come up against. Don't want to break anything, but there must be a trick to getting behind it for service. Any ideas ? Thanks .......

Is there room above the TV? If so, it may be mounted on a "V" bracket and simply slide up to remove.

Got information back from Newmar Customer service that the TV was mounted on a fixed bracket and was secured by two screws at the bottom of the TV. Well, the Bose Solo 5 sound bar is mounted directly under the TV so the screws were not easily seen. When I asked about the sound bar, customer service responded that is was held in place by Velcro. So, tonight I went down and started taking a closer look to see why the sound bar would not come loose. The Sound bar is not velcroed in place, it is secured by a bracket that has a locking lip that unhooks after you tilt it up. (see pictures). This was only discovered after I located the two screws holding the bottom of the TV, and after finding a very thin long Phillips head screwdriver, was able to back the screws out of the wood support. You then lift the TV up and it comes off the wall bracket and you can then disconnect the cables and lay it on the bed. The Bose sound bar wasn't plugged in and after rearranging the cabling and plugging in the power, the sound bar came on. Got everything back together and secured back to the wall and all is working with great sound.

While bedroom TV mounts vary from different models as well as floorplans, ours was on a mount attached to the wall opposite from the bed . Upon delivery, I had our cabinet mfg build a cabinet where rhe TV was originally. They mounted the TV on the front so it is in the same position but the DW now has ample storage for all her cleaning and laundry products as opposed to trying to find storage elsewhere.

I didn't measure it but would estimate no more than 4 or 5 inches.
