That is a good question. We leave our LCDs in the trailer all winter personally. It doesn't get that cold here though. We might have a few days a year that it might dip into the teens. Usually low 30s most of the winter though.

On our rigs we have always kept a space heater going in the winter set to about 50 degrees. Many think that would cost too much but on average round here the temps don't get all too low for too long like Steve mentioned. We may get teens for a week but it's more likely to see low 30s for most of our winter.

I don't know what the LCDs can take for low temps but it bears some further investigation I think. My concern is more with everything else in the RV which usually don't fare well with cold temps and the inevitable moisture that is associated with it. We do bring in our bedroom TV as we like to use it above the tub in our master bath when the RV isn't being used.

I leave mine in there all year.
No heat in the winter.
Temps could reach zero once or twice.
Old lap top computers could freeze.
I don't think new LCD TVs will freeze but check your
owners manual or call tech support for your specific brand.
Me, I'm all for the less work for me the better.

Now if your trailer is in any sort of a theft risk I'd remove it.
