Help me for my first Florida run from Snow

Kinda worried, but here goes.

Sometimes in the past, we have had to winterize the rig, hunker down and stay home for winter. All proper preparations and maintenance were done, and we successfully survived when starting a new season in the spring.

This year, because of health reasons, we can't leave Ontario for Florida until mid-December. I'll still winterize the rig before temperatures changes there.
We don't have a garage or carport, so it will be out in the elements .

I'm worrying about temps being so low, I won't be able to fold up the 50amp power cord into the storage bay if I have it plugged into the 50amp plug from the house. Should I just power up from the generator instead, and run that every two weeks as part of the RV maintenance?

Should I take the RV out for a drive every few weeks to keep things from getting too stiff for the big drive South? Better chance of not being snowed in by snowdrifts if I keep it moving too.

Am I overlooking some other issues? Anyone else here that breaks out during the deep of winter got some tips I haven't mentioned.

Thanks in advance.

My 30 amp power cords got stiff last winter here in SE PA. It was a chore coiling them when I unplugged.

I didn't notice your RV model in this forums app but if you can detach the cord from the RV, I suggest that you take them a heated area for awhile to let them warm up before coiling.

I use my motorhome all year so it was always "fresh." But I suspect you get a lot more snow than me.
