My first year with a fifth wheel, never had this issue with my TT but does cold weather affect the slides? It is like 20 degrees here and I am plugged into my house and the slides moan and grone to go in and out...................they really work hard
Electric or hydraulic slides? Electric may run a bit slower if you are running off of 20 amp house service. Hydraulic fluid can be affected by lower temperatures, which would also slow those functions.

Moisture rolled up in the topper and between the seals and walls could freeze and that might make for some trouble.
I like to crack the entry door open when moving my slide. That really displaces a lot of air and having the door (or a vent) open helps. Being cold out, is the trailer all sealed up? Might make a difference.

I just experienced the same exact thing on my TT slide. never did it before. I will try it again when the weather warms up and lube everything underneath. I thought it might be cold seals being a little stiffer but I dunno.
