TV wall mount

In my 2016 Winnebago there is a 50-inch flat screen wall mounted. I can see from my phone that there is a T handle in the middle pointing downward. It has a small chain and a ring. There's only an inch and a half space on all sides of the TV and this is up near the middle of the TV and I'm unable to reach this. How do I get this TV off to access the inputs on the back or to replace with a smart TV. Thanks

You should be able to pull down on the "small chain and ring" with one hand, then use the other to gently pull the tv out from the wall. That should get you access to the back of the tv. Otherwise, the mounts are typically screwed/bolted to the back of the tv. Hope that answers your questions.

Maybe use a coat hanger to put a rope through the loop in the chain.

I had a similar mount that had a pull chain. When you pulled it, the TV would swing out. I added a cable tie to the pull chain to make it long enough to reach below the TV mount.

Could be one of the MORryde TV mounts - here is an example of what you could be dealing with -

The advice you're received about the latching mechanism is 100% correct.

I would, however, like to mention that a smart TV isn't necessarily the best option. The "smarts" built into it aren't always the best available, aren't upgradeable, etc.

On the other hand, a dumb flat screen with a Roku device or similar device will do everything a smart TV will do. Rokus are generally considered to be one of the best options. Most TVs sold today have some degree of "smarts" but you can always add a Roku device. Even a Roku TV has the same limitations in comparison with a TV and an external Roku device. I have one (a TCL) and fully expect that one day I'll need to upgrade or fix it with an external device.

I guess my point is, if you're happy with your current TV except for it being dumb, don't feel you need to replace it with a Smart TV, just buy a Roku device. Personally, I'd go with the "box" version and not the stick version. If you do go the smart TV route, I'd recommend a Roku TV. In fact, many tech sites recommend adding a Roku box to a non-Roku smart TV. Here's one example:

With mine, I gently push in on the bottom of the tv and pull the handle. This releases the latch and it will swing out. With 2 people you can lift up and unhook the top. Be sure to have a place to rest it so you can unhook the wiring. Reverse to install.
