Removing TVs In Winter

Need some advise if I should remove the TVs in the winter when storing. I live in Michigan where it can get cold

I live in Michigan also and have our trailer parked on our property north of Gaylord. Have never taken the TV out and have not had any problems. If you plan on using it during cold weather just make sure the trailer warms up before you turn it on.

have left ours in for 5 years during the winter, no issues. some people take them out when they store the units storage lots since they tend to have units broken into and steal TVs and batteries etc.

Yes you can leave them in. However, LCD tv's are more susceptible to freezing. The manuals may tell you not to store them below a certain temperature. Doing so may void the warranty.
