I thought it was their nicknames: Short Bob and Simple Carla.

Another case of lack of self control and it's not late either…

We remove it for a couple of reasons...

1. It can't be stolen if the AS gets broken into.
2. It's out of warranty and expensive to replace - why take chances.
3. Like everything else regarding our AS - we're very ..... retentive.

Happy Trails!

I remember reading that very cold temperatures are not good for LCD displays. So, being who and what I am, I remove the T-V each winter just to play it safe. It can and does get to 20 below here - brrrrrr, I don't even want to think about that!

Count so far

I think: 3.5 yes, 5.5 no, 4 didn't answer or were incomprehensible (one apparently removes his tow vehicle instead). Of the "no's", one lives in Mississippi (is it possible to get to -4˚ there?) and one drives south. The halves did one year, not the next. Discount the ones who go south, and it's even. Margin of error: ±50%.

What does this prove? Be careful what you ask for.

Hi, at about 100+ degrees the liquid leaks out of my LCD TV and makes a big mess; I learned to put a tray under it and use a tiny funnel to pour it back in. And at 32 degrees or lower the Liquid Crystalizes on the Display. Forget the darn TV, I don't work in those temperatures.

Gene, thanks for bringing this up, I'd never even though about it. If Robert's HDTV leaks at 100+, mine would melt completely with trailer interior temps exceeding 125 degrees as it did several days this past summer. So I guess I'll be removing the new LCD HDTV during inclimate weather. So, this response is an unqualified "YES", or "yes, I will from now on", or incomprehensible (or quickly becoming so).

Are most of your answers relating only to LCD flat screens or are they the same for plasma flat screens? I did not read any differentiations? Aerowood did give some facts instead of opinions but I assume in a c130 all flat panels are LCD??

We do not have Flat panel displays in the cockpit yet (we are going full glass a year from now and they will be LCD) The aircraft is a weather research bird and the science racks in the back all have comercial grade LCD monitors

What's the best sealant to prevent the TV from leaking? I should have a pan under it in the summer to keep the liquified crystals from staining the sofa.

I was asking about the LCD. I doubt plasma would work in a travel trailer because all that shaking could cause the plasma inside to escape and the entire rig would go into an alternate universe.

What the heck - just stick with the old bullet-proof cathode ray tube TV and you'll never have to worry about it!
