Retractable running boards in snow?

Anyone have problems with the retractable running boards in snowy/icy conditions? Does snow/ice accumulation behind front wheel create problems when the running boards extend when the doors are opened?

Yes, I had the problem where snow can accumlate and frozen ice between the steps when closed. So, as the running board retracts open, they make a crack sound.

I would find flat mud flaps (Ford ones are great) to reduce the accumulation of snow between the steps. I have yet to see a mold flap made for the power running boards. Make sure that they clear with the flap so that they don't rub each other when retracting.

Apparently to can set them to on off or auto in the setup menu, so you can turn them off on those frigid snowy days. Although you might have trouble getting in/out if you are shorter in height. I am a little concerned about the winters too, but they look really cool the rest of the year!
