Should I take out my LED tv's for the winter? I have a 3010. Can they freeze?

No. The freezing point of an LCD is quite low. (see attachment)

Additionally, if you keep it plugged in, the "instant on" circuitry will keep it quite warm.

I take my TV out each winter. There are many places in Northern US and Canada that see -40C temperatures. For a few extra minutes work, the security of having a good crisp and viewable image in the spring is worth it. I say take it out if there is the remote chance of -40C.
-40
C is the cross over point where it is the same as -40F.
Have a good winter

I stand corrected.
If you anticipate temperatures of -40 I would NOT take out the TV.
I would take out ME!

Move that camper to Key West!

I couldn't agree more! The coldest we've had here in my memory was -22F.



Who all is talking their tv's out?

I have always removed the TV's from our campers for the winter, just didn't want to take a chance. I have found in our Sunseeker 2300 it is easier to remove the pivoting mount along with the TV, then to remove the TV from the mount. When reinstalling the tv the first time I ended up removing the mount to get it reattatched to the TV.
