Flat screen TV locked in closed/travel position
The large flat screen TV in the living room will not release from the latching system to allow the TV to pull out and swivel. In our Pinnacle 35LKTS, the release cable with pull ring is located above the TV and a few inches right of the Jensen audio system. I've released the TV on a few occasions but now there is no "give" in the cable no matter how hard I pull on it. My guess is the cable or the ring on the lever is tangle around something. The bigger problem is there is little to no access to the back of the TV. A mirror and flashlight does little to give a good view behind the TV. I even picked up a video scope (on sale for $70 at Harbor Freight) but it's still a challenge to get a good idea how the latch is situated.
I'm hoping another Pinnacle owner or someone with another Jayco fifth wheel with the same set up can provide a good picture or two of the latch set up.
I went to Camping World and looked at an Eagle with basically the same TV and fireplace set up but, on this one, the cable/pull ring is located below the TV. I took the below picture of the Eagle latch. I'm just guessing but maybe the latch on my Pinnacle is reversed (upside down) since the cable/pull ring are above the TV. Having a good clear picture of a latch like mine might help me to shape a heavy wire like a coat hanger to make a connection on the release lever.
Any pictures or advice will be welcomed. Like most things on our FW, I prefer to do the work myself whenever possible.
