Bedroom TV and Cable
 
This site can be tough to search for solutions so I apologize for posting this.

First, I did successfully find on the forum how to remove the bedroom TV:D. I now would like to know what mount are people using to replace it with that is easier to use.

Secondly, For the first time I had a chance to hook up the cable TV. The only problem is that all channels are fuzzy:banghead:. I verified that it must be something in the RW as I plugged the basement TV directly to the campground cable and all is well. Any ideas as to what would be the best place to look for the problem?

As always I thank all of you in advance!

Make sure the TV booster is off. Yours should be in the cabinet in the bedroom on the right side near the bathroom. It is in the upper shelf. A green light will be on. That will boost the over the air reception but cause satellite and cable to be fussy.

When using cable, it is my understanding that you must turn off the "Off The Air" antenna amplifier to use cable signal. On my 2012 36RL the antenna amplifier is located above and to the left of the bedroom TV. If you look up there, you will see a green LED amplifier power indicator. There is also a small push button switch to turn amplifier power ON/OFF. You may need a flashlight to see the button. Push the switch to turn the LED off for cable use.

Hope this helps.

multiple help for this one as EVERYONE asks it at some time or another :)


Although ours is black - it looks like this and will probably be 'somewhere' around the bedroom tv - it seems like it moves depending on the day built :)

You are right about the location
My 2015 36rl is behind the bedroom TV on the wall to the left. It would be to hard to standardize it and put it in the cupboard to the left of the TV where the satellite connection is. My biggest question is why rvs need to keep changing things instead of going off one drawing and Making everything the same. It would save money in production costs and create a lot more happy campers:)

Works like a charm on both accounts. Installed a new mount which allows tilt and more space to connect HDMI cable for Blue Ray player. Thanks for the advice!

What mount did you get for the bedroom? I've never fixed mine, but its not tilted down enough for the bed, and the picture is poor at that angle.

GA1817 04-17-2015 08:46 PM

Atom Ant it is a Rocketfish Model RF-TVMLPPT01V2. I bought it at Best Buy after going to Walmart and Target and not liking what they had to offer. I was wanting one that offered more space on the back that I could plug the HDMI cord into the TV and that had tilt option. Plus this one has a latch mechanism for dismounting the TV. I was impressed that Redwood puts a 1 inch thick panel behind the TV as the mount uses two rather large lag screws. Rather easy install and the picture is a lot easier to view! Only $29.99! You will need to attach a chain so that you can use the dismount mechanism. I also added the spacers between the TV and mount to add more room.

AA - this one is in the rv AND the kitchen @ home holding up a 32"

Easiest mount I've ever put up- and I've put up a few...

but this one doesn't lock, so we just put a soft bungie across it when traveling...

GA1817 04-17-2015 09:01 PM

This is the one I installed. On the 2012 36RL you do not have a lot of room and I do not think one of the swivel mounts would work.

Ah great, thanks guys! I'm probably good with the Rocketfish that just tilts down. Not a lot of running around room in the bedroom on the 36RL to justify a full swivel type. :)
