Pop-up TV adjustment

I have the pop-up TV in the back of my new 31SL and noticed that the TV is lower on the right side than the left when raised.

Looking back there I am confused as to whether it can be adjusted. It looks like there are two separate motors and drive screw-jacks and maybe they need to be synchronized but there is only one frame that raises the TV.

Has anyone had to adjust theirs? Does anyone know who manufactures the unit?

I had to set the lower stops on mine. The TV went down too low and eventually warped the top cover. I had the dealer replace the cover before we took delivery. Ours is not perfectly level when up, but not off enough that I have fooled with it. Can you manually turn the threaded rods to correct the offset?

Looks like the TV installer never has a good day. That's three for three that I know of...

I was unhappy with crick in my neck trying to look at the TV from the recliner. So I took the lift out, cut it up, and welded in bracketry to pull out and rotate the TV. Made a step and easy bolt in mount for travel. Straightened every thing out and readjusted the stops. Also made the Corian cover a separate mount so when the TV rotates, the cover stays put.

Donnie,

That looks fantastic!

While you were in there, did you notice a way to lift one side slightly?

Thanks for the kudos! As far as an adjustment, I'm sure it can be done. There are set screw collars on the threaded feeds and also some adjustment on the cables. In my case when I cut it apart, I initially set it up in my shop and tacked it together where it was nice and straight. Even fit the TV on it before final welding. Came out very serviceable.
