Mine are left in the trailer. However I live in a relatively temperate location. If I lived somewhere where the temps were below zero for expended periods I might consider moving them inside.

Do a search- this has been discussed before and the consensus was that it is ok to leave in during the winter. I leave mine in year round.

when a tv is shipped via truck freight it may sit in a trailer for weeks before delivery in sub zero temps.
just sayin

Since I store my TT away from home, I take them out for the winter.

I remove my TV. One less thing reason to break into my trailer when it is stored for the winter.

I leave mine in, as for the weather hurting them I do not think that is an issue.

Al I see you're in West Virginia. I think you'll be OK leaving it in the camper
as far as cold.
As mentioned by others if there is a theft possibility you should remove it.
Mine is parked at home and I feel fairly safe about leaving it in there all
winter.

I -think- this issue about LCD screens freezing came from early lap top
computers. When they first came out some could be cracked by being
left in a cold car in the winter.
I believe frozen cracked screens are not so much a problem now days.
Obviously theft is always an issue to be considered.
