    Most any deicer spray should help a lot and we use a silicone spray for the slides. It's not like we use the patio door a lot when its that cold, matter of fact we keep the blinds closed as a layer of insulation. I would imagine though your cold temps last a lot longer than ours do, and you have much more moisture in the outside air.
