We've owned RVs for over 30 years. I've never removed the TV, or any other electronics for that matter. I'll match our WI winters against those in PA anyday.

You should be fine to leave them in for the winter. It's not the cold that gets em, it's the humidity if you use them when they are cold. A family friend made that mistake, first run out in early spring, the TT was warm, but the tv was still cold and the condensation fried it

If it is an LCD tv, remember that LCD stands for liquid crystal display. If it is LCD, remove for winter. It ay not freeze like water, but it will damage the tv.

I'm in Pa. too and I take out the TV only because my 5er goes to the dealer in Oct. for inspection and winterization and I have a expensive LCD TV that I don't want to temp thieves with. We did have a tube TV in that came with the RV before and never bothered taking it out.

We've had LCD for the last two winters, again here in WI. No damage. I've read that they will NOT be damaged, unless you turn them on when they are extremely cold.

There are thousands of RVs on the road now with LCD TVs, more everyday. I can assure you few are removing their TV for the winter.

2x turning them on while they are that cold has the posibility of harming it. Just let it warm up and aclimate before turning it on.

Thanks for the info, it would be a pain removing. I won't be using the tv until June, It should be warm by then.

Manufacture recommended operation temp is +40 to +100 degrees. They do say to allow them to gradually warm up before operation. Why take the chance? A tube tv is different than an LCD tv. At the end of the day, it is your tv and your wallet. My suggestion is to search the Internet on "LCD tv storage in cold weather" and decide for yourself. That is what I did and found mixed reviews and I decided I would rather hassle a bit taking my LCD tv's out for the winter, than taking my wallet out in the spring to buy new tv's.

The manufacturers don't ship in heated trailers... and I don't think they stop shipping product when it gets cold around christmas time...
