I live in Michigan also and have our trailer parked on our property north of Gaylord. Have never taken the TV out and have not had any problems. If you plan on using it during cold weather just make sure the trailer warms up before you turn it on.

have left ours in for 5 years during the winter, no issues. some people take them out when they store the units storage lots since they tend to have units broken into and steal TVs and batteries etc.

Yes you can leave them in. However, LCD tv's are more susceptible to freezing. The manuals may tell you not to store them below a certain temperature. Doing so may void the warranty.

Leave it in. I have TV's in a house in the UP that gets closed up in the winter and I have never had a problem. Biggest NO-NO turning it on when it's cold. Do not use it until it has had at least 24 hours to warm up from the cold. If you don't winter camp you will not have a problem.

I leave electronics out all the time. Work as a broadcast engineer doing winter events on the side of a mountain! -40 F and use battery blankets. The TV's just worked!

Think of the lcd screens in your vehicles.

-45c here in winter, displays are a little slow, but work fine when warmed up.
