    Keep the direct high pressure spray away from the pump assembly, the seals on the angle rams and any electrical connections and you'll be fine. You didn't say what type of pump it has but if it has an external breather vent, cover it so no water gets in the fluid reservoir.

    Clean and re grease the connections with dielectric grease...
    You can shoot a little fluid film on any exterior connections (coils, motor connections)

    We wash our rigs when ever possible. I think salt can be more of a issue than water, expecially over time. I often find myself at the coin operated wash bay during the storm, making the windows clear lights bright and giving myself a break. Preventative maintance lots of grease fluid changes and keeping stuff clean will save you money and agrevation in the long run.
