Our trailer is on a seasonal site 30-40 mins from our house, so we take all our TVs home at the end of the season.

...nor do I remove the stereo and the navigation and backup screens from our cars. Not required. As mentioned above with some equipment it's not a bad idea to let it warm and stabilize to the ambient temps before using... (Even then my only concern would be for devices with high voltages (CRT type TV's)) Your RV (and cars) are loaded with electronics that go to sub-zero temps and you use them immediately with no issues. (and the internal items like radio, ECU's etc. have no more environmental protection than any other of your electronic items...

Mine is stored at home and I leave ours in. Mainly because I can't figure out how to remove it..

Leave TVs in both Park Model and Fiver. If someone steals them new smart TV's will fit just fine!

I used to remove the TV, but after researching it some and seeing what others do on the forum here, I decided that this winter I am leaving it in..probably a greater risk of my damaging it by dismantling and hauling it into the house then leaving it in the trailer.

Stop and think folks, do you really think the dealers go out and remove all the tvs from the campers and store them inside a heated building???

Removal to prevent possible theft, but from the cold????
