If you can avoid it , I'd leave them in, possible the seals will be frozen and rip when the slide moves.
If you can't avoid putting them out , run the furnace and bring the inside temp up in an attempt to warm the seals before you move the slides.

Not sure about the hydraulics but the fabric on the slide covers wont like it if you have them. We have put our slides in and out at a few degrees below zero [on our MH] many times going south from Canada, they groan a bit but will work. Just do not ever bring your slide in with snow on the slide cover it can bend your slide and through it out of alignment.
