    Need to Install HDMI Cable

    Has anyone figured out an easy way to access the HDMI ports on the back of the FURRION TV? Installing an HDMI cable would solve some of the inferior problems with the model of the stereo unit that has been installed, such as not being able to play BlueRay discs. I've already added a Bluetooth adapter to the AV IN port of the DV1000. Thought I might be able to easily lift the TV off the mount temporarily. Was afraid I'd eventually snatch the entire unit off the wall, so I stopped. Boy, would have been nice for Grand Design to bring all the TV connections to a plate in the top left cabinet, next to the AC plug. Maybe I'm missing something. Thoughts?

    On mine, you simply lift the TV straight up and then pull it straight out. It's a snug fit, but wasn't very difficult.

    Mine has two extra brackets on the top of the TV that would have to be removed before attempting to remove it..

    Removing my TV from the mounts was a bear for me also. There are two vertical brackets mounted to the wall. Each bracket has two holes/slots in it, one at the top and one at the bottom. I tried to remove it and could only get the bottom slots on each bracket out. When I had it at the dealer for other stuff (LOTS of other stuff), I had them look at it. They got it entirely off and apparently adjusted either the ?pins? on the back of the TV or the brackets themselves. It comes off very easily now. Essentially, you just push the TV up, and then pull it off. It is easier with two people.

    I have a new 2015 303RLS and got a Haier TV which is very easy to remove from the wall bracket. Likely doesn't help you but my mount has 4 posts and I simply pull up and then out. A bit of a challenge to line the 4 posts up while placing it back on the mount but have done it a few times. Not sure why they switched to Haier TVs but likely my setup is different so probably not of any help. I don't have to place much pressure when lifting it up to remove the TV.

    I am interested in knowing what specific Bluetooth dongle you purchased for the AV IN.

    I purchased the AUVIO® Bluetooth® Music Receiver Model: 1500465 from Radio Shack. Works very well. Also, received a call from the service department at Grand Design on instructions for lifting the TV off the bracket. Basically, I just needed to be a little more forceful....but careful. As the fit was very snug. Got it off, installed HDMI cable, and am very happy. Really appreciate the great customer care from Grand Design.

    Thanks for the quick reply.

    I've got an early 369rl. Are all of the TV's mounted the same way? I unscrewed two top bracket screws and still could not lift the TV up or off the wall unit.
