    just wondering how you guys think the best way to store your plow is? mine will probably outside and I'm not even sure i can put it in the shade. I know if I can put it in the shade I will but don't know what else to do. Should I spray the whole thing down with WD40 or "fluid film"?? What about the wiring? Any tips are appreciated and thank-you in advance.

    we usually pressure wash them off, throw some wax on them, and roll them in the garage..for the wiring we put a little di-electric grease in the plug ends..

    If I were you, and had to store it outside, just wash it down good spray it all down with some Fluid Film, get it off the ground (set it on a pallet) and cover it over with a tarp. Thats about all you can really do.

    I'm planning on prepping my plow for storage tomorrow.

    I have a couple rust spots on the mount and some starting to form on the plow itself, but nothing to get overly concerned about.

    What's the best way to combat this to make sure it doesn't turn into a problem? I was planning on painting the mount with black rust stop paint? Or should I use some of the free fluid film sample I received? Or Both??

    The plow is stored inside a garage.

    I wash mine after each use, and I store my plow inside the garage. Its waxed before storage....:salute:

    First thing I do is wash it before I store it away. I keep mine outside next to my shed and cover it with a tarp. When I remove the tarp in the winter months the plow looks great, nice and clean. Just put di-electric grease on the plugs.

    You can use Fluid Film as a di-electric grease. Bet you didn't know that. :)

    grease on the plugs. leave it on grass uncovered out back. i did go out of my way to buy some rustoleum black at walmart to spray a couple spots on the frame and put spray lithim grease on the pins and other important moving pieces...

    and i bought the fisher yellow to touch up the plow. twenty bucks for a can of spray. think next year ill just let it rust.
