Tv Mount Casita

Thank you to all who have helped me over the past two years. Because of you I can now do many things a seasoned camper takes for granted. This is rather basic, but I do not know how to adjust the tv bracket that holds the tv in place on my Casita. It is held tightly against the camper. I need to know how to pull the arm out so I can access the back of the tv. (I want to attach an HDMI cable.) Any advice or help offered is much appreciated! Amy (I looked on YouTube.)

Plugging or unplugging various cords into the back of my trailer TV set has always been nothing short of a fight. Face it, there isn"t a lot of "wiggle room" back there, and forget about seeing anything behind it because you can't see diddly without removing the TV set, and I'm not going down that rabbit hole. I found that having one of those telescoping inspection mirrors has helped me to find hook-ups behind the TV set that I couldn't see without it. Otherwise, trying to find a particular connection by feel hasn't worked at all. I don't read Braille either. I do have a DishTV portable satellite antenna, (aka "Tailgater,") that I travel with, and since I already have a DishTV satellite subscription with them at my home. I just added, and activated, an extra DishTV receiver box, and it permanently lives in the trailer on the shelf under the TV set in the rear corner, It is also hooked up with an HDMI cable. (Note: the picture below of the reciever box shows my older one. It has since been upgraded to a "Wally" receiver box.)
My TV set, like most, is mounted to an overhead bracket, and to keep the bottom of the TV set from swinging like a clapper in a bell going down the road, I fabricated a bottom stiffening bracket out of a piece of scrap 1" X 1/8" flat bar that I had laying around. It is mounted to the TV set in the screw holes for the base bracket on the TV set itself, (where the table stand base would normally connect to it,) and it sits tight against the trailer wall in the corner. The lower part of the bracket is not mounted through the trailer hull, but is just screwed to the wooden radiused corner table under the TV set. Solid as a rock and no swinging around all over while going down the road. Hope it helps, and good luck with your installation.

Thanks for the information. You have done a lot of nice upgrades to your Casita. I like your storage box on the back.

I have the same problem. Is there any way to loosen up that bracket so the TV can move a bit??

OK, so maybe give us a little bit more information on this? Why would you want it to move?

I moved the bracket outward of the corner by removing the bracket from the upper cabinet, then re-attaching it using the next pair of mounting holes, and creating new holes in the underside of the cabinet using the bracket holes as a guide.
This relocation provided the few inches of added space behind, and also increased the angle of rotation before the edge of the monitor hit the wall, both of which aided in viewing the back side.

I sleep wheel to wheel with my head on the rear Driver side and would like the screen angled more in my direction.
