Television type

I want to add a second Tv in my camper's bedroom. Does it matter due to cold and heat extreme if you get a LCD or LED type TV? I live in Illinois.

Either one should be fine.
Most people bring them inside when stowing the TT during the winter.
I have an LED and will leave in in the camper from April - November in Ohio


Best regards,
Doug

Thanks Doug. Ohio weather is similar to Illinois so I will go with the best deal. What about a plasma?

Not sure about a Plasma.
Google specs, should give a temp range.
I think they're all in the same category.

Mine stays in all the time, the temperature range is usually for operating, not storing.

I'd be more concerned with condensation than the cold itself. For example, you have a flat screen in your camper at 0 degrees F. then bring it into a warm house. Condensation will occur on the circuit boards, etc. and could be a problem if you energize it under those conditions.

I leave my tv in the camper all of the time, and use it on weekends all year long. No problems doing this for 3 years now.

x2 Leave them the Rv. Less damage, so you don't drop them.
