Flat screen TV....

Just wondering if most of you leave your flat screen tv in the TT over winter or take it out ? I would take it out in a heartbeat if it were not so difficult to mount on the wall bracket because of the tiny set screw.
Also, thank you Camper Bob on your earlier answer to my questions on the circuit breaker location and also on the outside low drain valves. This forum is just so helpful............Mike

There's another discussion somewhere in here about removing the TV during winterization (can't find it right now). I believe the consensus was that it is not necessary. I don't remove mine, but then, this is TX, it doesn't get that cold, but heat... we got plenty of that!

Cold will not hurt a TV.

Where in Texas Bob ? I spent the last 9 months of my 4 year hitch at Ft. Hood in 1971. Watch out for the Ebola if you are near Dallas.

Small town outside San Antonio, the bad bug probably couldn't make it out to us, but I'm careful anyway.

When you see those container trains going by with goods from China do you see any heaters on them? Of course not.. the cold will not hurt a TV UNLESS you plug it in while it is still cold even then it probably wont hurt it but better to let it warm up first..

Here we go again. There was another thread on this that got totally exhausted. Summary, LCD displays may indeed freeze and crack. This includes LCD displays with LED backlights but not true LED display tvs. Just google it. There are many articles about this. But in actuality the mean temp in an RV probably won't get cold enough to crack an LCD display since there is solar warming during the day. Example: It might be zero outside but the inside temp. is 30 due to the sun beating down on the RV. http://rv-roadtrips.thefuntimesguide...een_lcd_tv.php

I live in Ontario, Canada. The normal lows during the winter get pretty cold and stay that way for weeks to months on end. I have a LCD TV that usually stays in the trailer and I have never had an issue with it. If you're not sure about this, I suggest checking the manual for the TV, in it you should find information about temperature ratings including use and non use. Follow what the manufacturer suggests and you'll be fine.

If you're still not sure, take the TV out. Better to struggle with the pain of mounting and un-mounting than to risk wrecking the TV.
