Hi all.

Happy to be an Open Range owner based just outside of Vancouver BC, Canada.
We did a lot of homework and decided to live full time in our unit with teenager, dog, and cat. Mid bunk was only way to go.

Quick question. We are trying to hook up our laptop to The main Furrion screen and seem to struggle to find easy access to tv HDMI input. We can see it. What are we missing?
Notice that one HDMI from tv goes out the back. I'm guessing it comes back into the stereo.

Ideas?

Cheers

Dave and Alicia

Welcome from warm, sunny Anthem, AZ. If you come South, stop to see us - full-timing is great here.

Dave and Alicia,
Congrats on the new Roamer and welcome to the forum.

If your Furrion TV is mounted to the wall like mine, you should be able to remove it. Best to have a second pair of hands and eyes for this. To do so, first remove the strap that holds it in place while you travel. Then lift the unit slightly (about 1 to 2 inches) to and then pull toward you to get the TV off the mount. At this point, you can easily access the HDMI inputs. To get the TV back on the mount, you will have to carefully line up the 4 male posts to the widest part of the mounting and holes, slide them in, and then let slide down into the grooves. If you are going to want constant access to the HDMI port(s), I would install an extension cable and just leave it attached to the TV at all times. Taking the TV on and off its' mount, would quickly become a nuisance.

Enjoy your new trailer.

Welcome to the forum. The day we picked up our new camper (Dec 15th) we walked in the 371MBH just to see what it looked like. That is one nice camper!! Enjoy the full timing!!
