Never removed TV's from the camper and haven't ever had one have a problem due to cold. I wouldn't worry about it. As the temp warms it will acclimate as well and be ready to go in the spring!

Like others have stated ... I've had some fashion of an RV since the late 90's and have never removed any LED / Plasma TV. I live in Kansas and the temps get well into the single digits many times during the winter. Like also said ... just let the room warm up a bit before turning the TV on and all will be well.

I live in Alberta Canada, had temps of -40C and have never removed our lcd tv, still works like a charm as does the stereo and other electronic stuff.

In Southern New England we just broke the record for coldest winter ever with an average low of -6.5 degrees. Besides not worrying about the two tv's in the camper I have two (23" and 40") tv's I keeps outdoors on a porch and gazebo. They haven't broke yet and I watched the 40" last night with single digit temps.

Forgot to remove TV during Winterization?

Heat is the enemy of electronics, not cold!

These TV's aren't shipped in heated containers.

This is something you absolutely do not have to worry about.

I've hauled loads of tv's from Chicago that have sat in the shipping container for months in the middle of winter.

The LED shouldn't be a problem just let it sit inside for a couple of days before turning on so that any condensation that may form because of bringing it in from the cold doesn't cause a short. As for the people that left LCD TV's out in the trailer I was told that they are lucky LCD stands for Liquid Crystal Display and the liquid part can freeze and crack the screen. Have seen some of the LCD screens on cell phones crack from being left out in car.
