Forgot To Remove TV During Winterization

Hello all. First time owner (last year) and my priority for winterizing was for the plumbing and I didn't even think about the TV (LED with built-in DVD player). I left it in the camper and we're having a record cold winter where we have gone over a month below freezing (and days in the negatives).

We have it stored indoors (not heated), but I'm reading online that the TV only has a 50/50 chance of surviving.

Is there anyone else who has done this? What were the results?

Thanks!

I have left a LED tv in out door storage and it survived OK just make sure it is warm before you turn it on in spring. Good luck

Thank you for your reply. Good to know it has a shot of surviving. Although I'm still more worried about the plumbing as it's colder than I expected and it was the first time I've ever winterized.

Televisions sit in semi trailers by the truckloads all winter and summer too - just have it come to normal room temp and no condensation before you turn it on

Go get it and bring it in the house for the remainder of the winter

Sent from my SM-N910V

I wish I could bring it in. The camper is totally locked up in a big warehouse at the local fairgrounds. I don't have access to it until they email me the date/time to pick it up. 😕

doesn't matter now, it's been as cold as it's going to get. Not time to take things out, almost time to put things in

I left mine in too and it's not in a building. I'll let it sit until it gets warm in the camper on the first trip, it should be fine.

I have always removed ours cause it only takes a couple minutes, but there has been just as many in the forum here who say they never take them out and have never had any problems, so thinking you will be fine.

Display screens in trucks and cars are LED and sit out in way below zero and have no problems. No reason to think the tv will have a problem. These things are designed to be in cold weather, just don't turn it on until it is a little warmer.
