Question Tv's and Toads

Hi, we have two questions we're sure some of you have the answers to. First, we're in Colorado and will have our 2014 solera 24 r winterized tomorrow -arctic pak and heater on tonight. Any advice on storing the rv with the tv's inside for the winter? (we added a second one next to the bed) Our temps can get down to -20 F.
Second - any suggestions on a good small vehicle to be used as a toad. We think we would like to tow with all 4 wheels down, so we understand that all wheel or rear wheel is best. We'd also like a smaller vehicle for the weight consideration.
We just purchased the Solera last June and have already taken it to Alaska and just got back from Florida (that's why we're late in winterizing). Any advice is greatly appreciated.

Don't know about the TV as it rarely gets below 50 in San Diego but we choose a 2013 wrangler 2 door auto soft top. Easy to tow, don't even need key in ignition because jeep removed lock , doesn't violate any warrantees (we bought lifetime).
It's a fun vehicle to have along on a camping trip. We removed back seat as we camp with our dogs.

I've always left the TV's in my Solera during the Winter I do unplug them which I heard was a good idea? We had a Chevy Aveo to begin with used a car dolly for it. Then we traded for a Ford Fiesta last year still use the car dolly but were told the Fiesta could be towed on all four.
