Bring them in before the snow. They'll just move a bit slower than in warm weather. Make sure you have a fully charged battery to make things go smoother.

If the slides stop on the way in don't panic. Give them a minute and then hit the switch again. If it happens, it's the thickened hydralic fluid making the pump draw too much juice. The breaker will reset and then you can continue.

Full timers here, We broom off the slides so the snow melt doesn't find its way past the seals. found that out in Memphis during a snow storm.
