What to do with TV when winterizing ?

Well it looks like I am going to be stuck here in Michigan for the winter! As it gets below zero quite often here what do most of you do with the TV? Do you take it out? Will the cold freeze the LCD display? Thanks for your input .

We've always left them in the RV. You have to remember they are shipped in unheated trucks all winter.

Our tv stayed in our Trailer last Wisconsin winter, with temps in the 20 below 0 range quite often. No problems with the TV now.

The real danger is do not turn them back on until they warm back up to room temperature.

Althought it isn't necessary I still bring my HDTV's back into my house or at least use one of those THERMO-CUBES that turns on at 35 degrees and then turn off at 45 Degrees. I plug a OIL-FILLED portable heater into the THERMO CUBE.



I use the thermo cubes in my two trailers when parked here at camp backyard during the winter months...

These CUBES are also great for plugging in 100WATT 120VAC Bulb into them to use inside your closed off cabinet areas or storage areas. Added protection for things that freeze...

We leave our TV in the trailer and we get some pretty cold temps here in southern Ontario.

they are no different than the displays in vehicles. Nav systems,DVD players, dash clusters etc. all survive in brutal low temps

I would think that the LCD devices in vehicles are designed for more extreme temp swing environments then TV's (sealed better from moisture, freeze/thaw cycles, etc.).

Just thinking out loud here

highly doubt that. We installed hundreds of after market DVD players in our Grand Caravans and never had issues with them...They were just Chinese screens
