Leaving TV in MH for Summer
Is it ok to leave a TV with the electronics for the hot Summer. Sun City West AZ gets plenty hot in the Summer and the coach will not be shaded other than blinds and front window
Take the tv out or take certain measures and leave in place. Thanks

I'd leave it in. If it is the old tube type TV, not a big loss, and the newer LED TVs aren't all that expensive.
Think about it-- almost all the connections in a TV are soldered together. Does the interior of a coach get hot enough to melt solder?...

Be sure you leave a couple of open containers of water in the coach. We use a couple of 5 gal buckets about half full.  It helps keep a little moisture in the air, and leave your roof vents cracked open

Now that explains why I would put on underwear that I left in the coach and immediately thought I had lost weight!!
Notice that I wasn't brave enough to say that I thought I had put on the DW's underwear by mistake. >:D  :))

Have you considered covered storage? Going "uphill" to a less intense location?

Those TV specs are most likely operating environment.  I would just unplug it and not worry.

I would put a few 5 gal buckets filled with water in the coach (maybe the shower) to help things from drying out too much.  When you get back they will...
