I leave ours in. It really doesn't get that cold in Georgia and an agile monkey would have a hard getting to it with slides in.

As long as you don't try to use the TV when it's cold you are fine.

took it out, plugged it in and watched Black Hawk Down and Heat... and the third movie it blew up the main board.
450$ to replace and had watched about 4 hours on it.

Theater costs and popcorn at 50$ a bag with butter would have been cheaper.
I remove mine and use them over the winter time
Well I'd say you left yours in a box for 3 years so guess it would fail according to your tech. Now we are talking camper and at most 4 months not using. I have left them in every camper I've owned and never had a failure. Later RJD

They don't ship them across the country in winter in heated trucks. The cold will not hurt them.
