Exclamation snow on my toppers

I made the mistake (I think??) of leaving my slides out yesterday and it snowed about 8 inches. Is this going to hurt my toppers buy streaching them or cracking them in the 0 degree weather they enduring?

I am afraid to pull in the slides as there may be some ice in the tracks.

Please let me know how to handle this. It looks like the weather is going to remain below freezing for the whole week.

I removed the snow this am. I will just keep a eye on it and be careful in the future. I was just worried about the weight on it stretching or cracking the canvas. Thanks for the answers.

they shouldn't stretch being they are spring loaded. I had about a 1/2" of ice on mine last year and didn't know it until I brought the slides in, it just broke it off as it went in........

Hey,you found the answer for the WIND causing noise and Flapping the toppers! No really will Not hurt a thing,rain water caves them in also,as Glenn said they are spring loaded for this reason. Now if you try to bring the slide in (AND) the (Snow & ICE) have (Frozen-Stuck) to the cover material I would (NOT) retrack the slides, The topper material is not the (Best) in most cases! Youroo!!
