We leave 2 lcd tv's in the camper. No problems in 3 years.
Think it would be better to bring them in tho.

We leave ours in - do not plug in or turn on until warm and dry in there of course

No different than sitting in a semi trailer or freight car in the winter...

We've had large flat screen TV's in our RV's since the late 90's and never remove them during storage. Since we live in Iowa and had never had a issue/problem with any TV, we feel comfortable leaving them in place!

We have 2 flat screens and I remove them for the winter. Mostly for security reasons and because I don't like them in the extreme cold.

I've run LCD monitors in my observatory for years and it has hit -40 on occasion (doesn't matter Celcius or Fahrenheit as they are the same at -40) and never had a problem with the display. I do have one where the bezel cracked in the corner because the plastic tried to shrink more than the metal skeleton.

I took mine out of the camper and put it in my living room for the winter because it’s actually bigger than the one I have at home.

You know you are roughing it when the TV in the trailer is nicer and bigger than whats in the house!
