Living Room TV height adjustment - TV Lift

So like many of the Pinnacles the living room TV is on a lift behind the fireplace - how do you adjust the height of the TV on the lift?

The sensor on the TV sits right at the top of fireplace top so the remote has to held over my head while sitting to hit the sweet spot to work. I just need to raise the TV up one notch so the sensor on the bottom of the TV clears the cabinet.

Is it on the mount like the bedroom TV - where you lift up on the TV?

Welcome to JOF. You are not the only one with that issue. I have the same problem on my 2019 Pinnacle. Mine is a mechanical lift, basically a strut that pushes up on the TV that is mounted to fully extend drawer glides. I have look at it but not in great detail to figure out a solution. I hope someone has figured out a simple fix.

Mine has the same problem. I removed the fireplace, removed the mounting bolts on the lift and raised it 1 1/2 inches by putting a 2x4 under it and replacing the screws, longer, and the fireplace . It has been acceptable for years. Note: donít raise it up to much or it wonít clear the lid when down.

Also some sets have a option for IR remotes and I also saw some sets with a plug to extend the receiver to a better location. This depends on your set options.

We don't have that issue on ours, and this is just and idea, but maybe an IR extender might work, something like this:

IR Extender

You would mount the receiver part right under the top of the cabinet (ours has a lip there). This would work good if your TV has a USB port on it, because then it could provide the necessary power...

I may see if Camping World will do this when we take it back in for some things that needed to be replaced on our delivery inspection.

I am thinking it only needs to go up one set of mounting holes.

The living room TV is a Smart TV - its actually one of the better smart TV setups I have seen in a RV.

I was disappointed that the bedroom TV is not a smart TV however. We are just going to use our ROKU stick on that TV.
