    Im new to the plowing business,

    should i be using this die electric grease on all my plugs everytime i use the plow?
    They gave me some in small little squeeze tubes, but I dont know when to use them. Yesterday after I plowed for a few hours I found a little water inside the plugs, just a bit & I was thinking maybe now is the time to use this stuff, but wouldnt the grease interfere with the terminals contacting ???

    The guy I bought the blade from said if the terminals ever get water in them,, just to use the terminal cleaner, in the spray can.

    Also does anyone have any ideas on how to adjust the sprins on the plow to help make it less flimsy & trippy???

    grease

    i put it on about every three or four times i plug in ,depends on what plow you have but you can tighten the trip spring eye bolts to give them more tension if they are not wore out .also they are going to trip easier if the snow is wet and heavy !

    I make sure the connectors have plenty of grease on them. and add as necessary
    No it does not interfere, its called Dielectric grease for a reason.

    If the plows "A" frame is angled down towards the plow it will cause it to trip easier.

    Just clean out all the moisture, that aerosol cleaner could work well, dry it and pack it full. Check it and clean out the accumulated corrison about once a month and re-pack it. Those little sample size tubes are good for one or maybe 2 applications. Regular size tubes at an auto supply or Can Trash are about the size of a toothpaste tube.tymusic
