Ok, great! Thanks everyone! I knew that TT's come with LCD's in them these days, just wasn't sure how they fared in our unforgiving MN winters. We do occasionally fire up the furnace in the winter to use the camper as a fun kids getaway or guest house. So we'll make sure to not plug it in until the tv feels room temp.
Mine stays in the trailer at all times. Just don't sit in the RV with inside temps below freezing and watch tv. turning on the furnace prevents any problem you MIGHT have with freezing temps. the "liquid" in an LCD describes the characteristics not the physical properties of the screen.

OP here. I don't have a fancy car with an LCD screen, thusly I wouldn't know that. Well, I *did* have a fancy Envoy XUV with an LCD screen, but it didn't last 3 months here. Towed 4 times in that 3 months. Don't miss it. *hehe*
The recomendation by most manufacturers is that an LCD should allowed to warm to normal room temperature before using.
If the room temperature is say, ten degrees, is that the normal room temperature? I just bought a new LCD TV for the MoHo and printed out a 60 or 80 page manual and "nowhere does it say anything about room temperature or freezing temps".
My LCD watches have been in some pretty cold temperatures and I've never been concerned. My remote sensors for the recording thermometer has been down to -10 or so and it still works.
If you're really concerned, try the mfg. customer service. Too many unsubstanciated theories here, not many facts.
Do you enjoy watching tv at 10 degrees? If you are enjoying it and it works, by all means enjoy.
Web search "freezing temps and lcd tv" and you will find plenty to read.

Each of the major manufactures of HOME ELECTRONICS has both operating and storage temperature limits… I assume there is a reason why they would bother to publish them…
I can’t say if mobile electronics and circuitry is any different or not or if it has encapsulated parts or maybe warming circuitry to prevent damage from repeated humidity or sweating…
the fact that someone claims to have not had a problem or had a problem yet isn’t a measure that I would go… who knows if the TV you replaced 2 years ago wouldn’t still be working if it had been handled correctly…
Like so many other things do what you please and pay with your money and I am good with your choice… that doesn’t mean I will agree with it…
