[Semibug] backup files over serial console

I am trying to put OpenBSD on an ubiquiti edgerouter - 4. I was able to
install it on a EdgeRouter-Lite but that was easier, as I could open the
case and everything was installed on a USB stick.
the EdgeRouter-4 cannot be opened (or I haven't figure out how). I am
pretty sure I can install OpenBSD but I would like to try and make a backup
of the software first.
As near as I can tell, this needs to be done over the serial cable. I
really can't figure out how to do this. I read the cu man page and it says:
Copy file from remote to local. The *cu* utility prompts first for
the name of the file to be sent, then for a command to be exe-
cuted on the remote machine.
I have no idea what this means... I am more of a programmer who
uses FreeBSD / openBSD
than a sysadmin, so I am pretty lost at this point. Can someone
explain what this means or how to
backup directories, etc over the console? Or is there another /
better way to do this?
