Getting behind Precept 31UL Dinette TV

Anyone had any luck getting behind the Dinette TV to plug in a cable or USB to use a portable device such as Apple TV or Chromecast? And then still be able to lower the TV?

McGarrett, I had to check once to see if everything was plugged in tight. I took off the scree and opened the dinette window and observed from there. you can see where everything is. Now, how you fish any wires or leads will be a different story. I may have given you enough info to get yourself into trouble.

If you only want to plug in cables ... Remove the valance side screws and pull the valance forward. You can then get your hand behind the screen to plug in cables.

Thanks tinman. Looked for the screws on the valance but couldn't find any. Where are they located?

On the inside of the vertical sides of the window surround there are angle brackets holding the sides of the balance/surround. If you remove the screws you should be able to rip out the bottom of the surround and get your hand behind the TV.

Just lift off the top cover of the TV, the part that looks like marble. It just lifts off. Raise the TV half way up and stand on the seat. you can stick your hand down and plug anything in that you need to. If you cant reach the wires you can also remove the plate under the table. Also note sometimes the HDMI and surround sound cables fall out and you have to plug them in again. Also if the TV is too low and the remote control doesn't work you can reach in like I just stated and readjust the TV by adjusting the mounting screws on the side of the TV.

This is great advice. Do you think there would be enough clearance to leave the cables plugged in when lowering the TV or will I have to go thru the process each time I raise the TV to watch?

There is plenty of room. That is how Jayco puts in there wires. There is two extra HDMI ports on the left side faceing the tv. Just use a wire tie. You should consider just running through the control switch box in your compartment. You never have to go near the tv. Just let me know what you want to run and I will tell you how. I just ran my tailgater that way

Djtommysr -What I'm trying to do is plug in a Chromecast to the TV so we can watch video from my phone, on the TV. The Chromecast plugs into an HDMI port, but if there is another way to get video off the iphone and on to the TV, I'd be interested to know how. We have a Clarion (not a Jensen) in the dashboard.

Thank you.

McGarrett
