    Use Meyer's Hydra flush. drain it of regular fluid. Fill it with hydra flush, lift the ram, fill the tank. Remove it from the truck for the summer. Next fall drain excess fluid, cycle remainder by running pump through it's functions then drain. Refill with fresh Meyer fluid. And don't forget to spray LPS3 or fluid film or something on the exposed rams.

    Make sure to flush the angle rams also. The Meyer manual states to not use kerosene to flush. Use naptha instead.
