I agree. I don't even take out the TV we have mounted outside in our gazebo during the winter. Never had an issue over several years. Same with the campers.

I don't think we don't have anything to worry about.

Samsung's response:
"Samsung LCD TVs can be stored unused at temperatures ranging from -4 to 113 Fahrenheit (-20 to 45 Centigrade). Storing your LCD TV at temperatures outside this range can damage your TV."

Many people remove them if they park in a storage yard to prevent theft.
Boy, that's a joke from them! I guess the trucks and warehouses are all heated!

Yeah I don't worry about it. They are just covering their butts.

I have never removed my TV's during winter, I just bring the trailer up to normal temperature before I fire them up.

Just my preference.

Blew out the system in prep for some cold weather. Came back to the house and was told we need to start prepping it for the Thanksgiving trip to DeSoto State Park for the annual Iron Bowl party. I wish SWMBO would tell me things in advance!
Needless to say ...

Enjoy... Roll Tide. I thought the Iron Bowl game would be "in the bag" for Alabama until I watched Auburn whip #1 Georgia yesterday... now I worry a bit... especially after Alabama had trouble, and a last minute win against Mississippi State. I will have to look up "SHMBO", don't know it off hand.

On the subject of "What did you do..." all I have done lately is look out the window at our rig as I go past a window. Had surgery and am still recovering.

Took it to a campground so that we could go to a Ren Faire. Got to the campground and the electric jack gave out while unhooking.... not even enough to get it off the trailer hitch. Fortunately we had a bottle jack with us and got unhitched.. $175.00 later got a better jack and swapped the old for new.. Also picked up 4 stabilizers pads.
The furnace got a small work out also to take the chill out of the air before bedtime and while waking up.

Now to go home after work today and empty it out and clean it up and put her to bed for the winter.

Installed the fireplace that it was supposed to be ordered with. Not too happy about it. The screw holes from the cabinet doors show around the outside.Click image for larger version

Have outdoor kitchen and noticed the coating on the cabinet door glass was being rubbed of from pans and other items in cabinets. Cut some pieces of plastic and installed inside to prevent further damage. Had this plastic left over when I cut a piece in installed inside the screen door to keep our fur babies from tearing up the screen, they did it once already.

That's a great idea... I have one cabinet door inside that had s scratch in the tint... I'll have to get some plastic
