I asked this question to the owner of the RV dealership I bought from. He laughed and said, "Do you think we take all the TV's out of these trailers every winter?" We are up here on the northern ND/MN border.

So you think the Tv's are pulled on every TV on an RV sales lot?

It is the biggest myth on the web...but like I said if it makes you feel better pull it.

We installed hundreds and hundreds of LCD screens in our vehicles up here on the east coast of Canada and they have never had a problem and these were subjected to harsher conditions because they were being operated at these low temps

I would imaging that the temp in trailers left outside in Arizona, Florida, etc in the summer could easily get above 140F. That is way above the spec of 113F. How many people in the southern states bring their RV or boat TV into the house in the summer? How many trucks have heaters to keep the TVs warm when delivering them to stores in the north in the winter? They could easily sit in a truck for a few days at temps way below -4F.

excellent point and proves they are not harmed

I drink water from my taps,leave my fridge on while fueling up,leave my door unlocked, don't wear gloves dumping my tanks, leave my awning out tethered in storms and don't have power protection.

Love it. At least I'm not the only one.

Even lost an awning once

Watch the container trains from China ripping past... do you see any heater units on them? of course not.. even at -40 here in Canada they do nothing to keep them warm. So dont worry about it..

The two LCDs in our trailer have been stored at home here and exposed to colder than -20 for consecutive nights and they still play the same crappy shows.

The dealer I bought my TT from removes all tvs from the units he has on the lot.

I will remove mine, I don,t think the cold will be an issue for it (yet I don't want to find out).... but it also the humidity that builds up in the TT during winter that Ithink could damage the tv
