8 posts in this topic

Have a buddy that want to put LCD tv in his ice house but asked if he could leave tv in house while it was parked in his driveway and if it would effect the tv..he talked to best buy and they had no clue..I told him that i wouldnt leave it in there when not in use and freezing out...but he was wondering if there would be damage done to it??

I have a under cabinet lcd tv in my house. Had out in the house all winter last year with no problems. When it was really cold it took a while to warm up before the screen would turn on. As soon as it warmed up it was fine.

I would think it will be fine. I also used to think this way about various things. But, in this part of the world things are alwasy being delivered by truck and not many are climate controlled, so I am sure they see cold temps.

I would let it warm up to room temp before using, and you should be good to go.

Yep. When the fish house begins to warm up condensation will form on the TV pretty heavy. Let it get up to temperature and dry out before turning it on. This could cause corrosion issues down the road if this is repeated often, so that is also something to consider.

I think it has a lot to do with the moisture inside of the fish house when it cools down after you leave....at least it did in my house. A byproduct of burning propane is moisture and is probably the difference between the air inside of a car and a fish house. That would be my guess. My TV would frost right up after I got out to the fish house and fired up the furnace. It'd then thaw leaving quite a bit of moisture on the outside and most likely inside of it. I didn't leave it in the house very often anyway.

Another point is leaving anything in your house whether on the lake or in the driveway is just asking someone to break in to steal it. I wouldn't leave it in the house when not in use regardless, just not worth the risk any more...too many people who think they can just take anything.

No kidding. Luckily I had taken pretty much everything out of my house when it was broken into last year. mad

    • Glad Lavine is gone! Added nothing but slam dunks to the team. I've been out of town for the past week, so I was very delighted to hear about this trade today.
    • Not unless they ban the toothpick crossbow here too. Takes those beetles out clean.   
    • That's called seasoning. Two years ago I took a trip to Germany and we spent a few days in the black forest where I got to see some authentic old world smoke houses dating back to the 1500's and the amount of buildup on the walls, hooks, poles etc is part of what gives their hams,bacon and sausage their flavor. They use juniper wood for smoking. Absolutely delicious.  But yeah, foil, Pam and other things can help. You can also use a power washer to clean them.
    •   "We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that."   Thanks for making my nite.  
    • Also woodpeckers beat on stuff to mark their territory.   I am pretty sure that there aren't any bugs on my metal downspouts.
    • You will often discover that birds are picking very small insects from decks and other woodwork around your house;  they do the same with trees and any other structure that might hold the bugs. We see them often on our decks and they usually pick a little bit and then move on,  perhaps just checking to see if there is anything edible there. These rascals also love hummingbird or oriole nectar, sunflower seeds and of course suet in winter. We have discovered  many species that will head straight for the nectar for orioles or hummingbirds and also plunge their beaks eagerly into the grape jam bowls orioles love. Birds will eat a greater variety than you might think. We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that.
    • And pretty soon there'll be little chinese restaurants springing up everywhere...there goes the neighborhood. 
    • I use the ball of aluminum foil, too. Works well.
    • lay them in the grass over night and wipe off in the morning.  the dew soaks in if it's moist out.  other wise lay them out and place wet towels over them for awhile..
