I do but it is only because my TVs are LCD types and hanging on a quick disconnect mounting frame. This has been discussed alot on the RV.net forums. It seems they can survive a real low temperature but one should warm up the room where the TV is mounted for several hours before turning the TV on.

If the television is LCD, LED or Plasma, I would highly recommend removing from the trailer and store in the house.

dont worry about it.... your vehicle ( or at least many have LCD displays in it and it sits out in the cold all winter... Just because it says liquid does not mean water... Do you think the containers bringing the TV's to the northern states and Canada are heated? NOT!!!!
Before I started snowbirding my LCD's spent the winter in my TT at -40 and still worked the next spring.

Most manuals will have a list of specs. Sometimes it will have operating temp and storage temp ranges. Normally it will not be an issue.

I agree with: No on removal - warm up coach before turning on...

When looking at trailers and motorhomes in the winter the dealers do not remove all the flat screen televisions.

I also live in MA and leave the TVs in the Class C. As Chuch said so do the dealerships. Three years and no problems here with the TVs.
