Bring Television inside for the winter?

First winter with a flat screen TV in a camper, do you leave it in the camper over the winter or bring it inside?

Leave it in. Unplug it of AC left on, no need to have stay voltage applied.

We always pulled ours out for the winter but this year based on what I've read on the forum decided to keep it in the camper. I'll make sure the camper interior warms up before turning it on in the spring.

The old LCD type displays (laptop style screens) could freeze and be damaged. However, there's no need to bring in the typical LED or plasma flat screens that are in most campers nowadays.
