    We have a cat roller that does that. The cable is about 8 feet long. They were using air brake antifreeze, better than menthal hydrate because it has some lubrication to it.

    Put a new cable on it
    If you have 120v electric or a generator you could put a heat tape on it.

    They want a $165 for the revised cable, and $10 for the additional cover. Screenshot_20190207-160159_Chrome.jpg 20190207_160258.jpg Screenshot_20190207-160233_Chrome.jpg
