The only problem i had with them is the factory didn't put in the req. amt. of 50 amp breakers and it put too much stress on the one that it failed in 6mos. so i put in 2 50a the wat it should have been done at the factory.
I'm glad to hear that the oil is light enough to function the hydraulics in the cold.
I know about the snow on the sliders. Last fall I took out a chair to be replaced and let the slides open till I brought back the new chair. It snowed and froze before I returned. I had to run hot water over all three slides to get the snow and ice off so it would close.
