Replacing the TV

Does anybody know if it is ok for us to replace our TV (old type) with a LCD flat screen? I heard that they cannot be left in a 'cold' vehicle. IS this a true statement?

I replaced my Sony boat anchor a little over two years ago and the LCD has sat through two very cold winters with no problem at all. Almost the best thing I've done to the MH.

In Nova Scotia it goes below freezing and I have no problem in a 32 inch LED in our MH. It is my Man Cave when my better half is watching TV programs I am in least interested.

I replaced all three sets in my rig and never had a problem... although I pride myself on never being anywhere it gets too cold.

If you are considering a plasma set, do some additional homework because that's the only technology I'd be concerned with in exceedingly cold temps.

I did a little research and not all TV's are the same with regard to cold storage....better to look up your brand and model on the Internet, or look in the back of the owners manual for storage temperature specs.

Most Samsungs seem to be rated to -4F

Plasma TV's might have issues. But LED's work great.

ALL new coaches that provide TVs come with either LDC or LED. They wouldn't do that if cold weather was a problem because manufacturers know most RVs get stored for the winter, especially if the owners live in the north.
