I left mine on over the summer and now can't get the dang thing off the auger. I'm not sure if the metal contracted or what. I tried WD-40, but can't seem to get it to budge. Any suggestions for removal?

Put some penetrating oil on the stubborn connection (good stuff) and let it sit awhile. If that doesn't work, apply some heat to it to expand the metal around the screw. That should do it....(And good luck!)

Take your wife's blowdryer to it to heat it up and then put some non-flamable liquid wrench to it while it is still warm. This will draw the oil in and help loosen it.

Heat may be the only way? Try heating the bottom part only. Be cautious not to put stress on the seals on the gear box if you have to work with it still connected to the extension. You do not want to damage the seals!

Once you do get it off, and before you put it back on again, smear the ends with Anti-seize thread compound. That way it will not rust together and lock up between installations. (You can find a dab of anti-seize at any tool and die shop or at most parts stores.)
