    Television lift

    Hi everyone.

    Can anyone tell me what brand television lift unit was used in the 2009 Montana? Or the brand of the ones they are using at this time.

    Ours got fried with the converter / charger.

      Hi Phil,

      I found a picture of the lift from our 2010 3665RL after it was totaled. I circle the two bolts to loosen, and you can left the TV off the lift.

        Hi

        It is obvious that you were able to get the top off of the lift. This is the problem with ours the top will not come off.

          If you lift the countertop that comes up when the lift works there are two metal legs that go into a square metal bar. That will come off.

            Hi

            I have tried everything to get that off to the point I was going to break it or damage the counter top.

              Hi all

              Update on TV lift.

              I was able to get the lift up about 6 inches and what I have found is Keystone did use the plywood but it is cut to a size that I am unable to see it thru the holes I have cut in the wall between the sound system and the TV / lift cabinet. The top Corian top is glued to the wood then the wood is fastened to the lift with 5 screws that would be impossible to remove with the TV down in the cabinet.

              This is a deliberate as you can get and defiantly makes it imposable to remove the TV and lift when the TV is stuck in the down position.

              I am waiting for a friend to come over and help me lift the TV out of the counter so I can remove the lift.

              When I get the new lift I will make sure I can get support from all manufactures involved in the components to make the lift before I install it.

              What has gone on here is the same kind of extortion the generator manufactures except for the one that doesn’t do this when you need support for your stand by generator and they want thousands of dollars to come to you and tell how much it may cost to repair it. Starting with Keystones refusal or inability to provide me information from the build ticket to Linaks refusal to provide me with the pin out information that would allow me to extend the lift tower enough to gain access.

                Hi


                For you all that keep saying remove the fire place and you can access the TV lift. See picture 1 you can access the base of the lift only.

                Look at picture 2 how would you access that large bracket about half way up from the fire place opening.

                Picture 3 the red circles are where the five screws were located that held the Corian top also unable to reach the center one even after cutting access holes in the wall between the entertainment center and the TV cabinet.

                I was able to repair the controller using a replacement fuse and replacing one component on the fuse circuit board.

                Picture 4 is a hanger bolt it has wood screw threads on one end and machine bolt threads on the other end. Picture 5 is the hanger bolt installed in the wood glued to the Corian top.

                Picture 6 shows the wing nuts used to hold the Corian top to the TV mounting bracket.

                Picture 7 is the finished product.

                      Wow, that is some good information! I had an older model and the TV lift started to act a little different. It seemed that it might stop doing its job. Before it became an issue we traded the unit in on the 3750FL we have right now. AND I did show the dealership what was happening so they could get it fixed hopefully before selling it. I had the same sort of configuration!
