Right- but once again how cold can it possibly get on a ship at sea? You have the ocean to keep it "warm"- so maybe -5 C (25F).
I just looked at the manual for my TV. It shows an operational range of 5C to 35C; and a storage range of -15C to 60C. A quick search online shows other brands with minimum storage temperatures as low as -25C; and some with minimum storage temperatures of 0C.
For those of you in milder parts of the continent, you would not believe the crazy stuff that starts to happen below -30C. Once when living in Dryden I forgot to plug the car in, and it was -43 outside. I could not plug the car in because the extension cord would not bend to unwind it. I had to bring the cords inside to warm up first.
The other thing to consider- where will the trailer be stored over the winter? I remember back in the spring a few member here said their trailers were broken into, and the TV stolen. At that point it isn't just about replacing the TV, but fixing the damage caused by the break in. (Or the forced removal from the wall.)
