    Hey Guys
    Everytime I hook up and unhook my plow mount I always feel like I am going to break the wire ends off. Does anyone use different connectors for their pump?

    I below is an image of what mine look like.

    Do you use dielectric grease? I don't have any trouble with the wires on my E47 except the larger power wires when it is cold.

    Yes I use d-grease but I still feel like the connectors are going to pull right off the wire.

    Never had any break at the connector end. Have had a few break off the coil. Local hardware store should have bullet connectors to replace the ends if you want.

    I am looking to replace the bullet connectors with something else.

    Flat 4 trailer plugs work good

    Another suggestion, I would get 2 of each male and female. Silicon the wire end of one male and female closed to be used as caps when the plow is not on the truck.

    I use the same thing. Works good.

    Are your connectors really tight such that it is hard getting them apart, thus you feel like you will break them? If so, loosen up the female side a little with a screwdriver or something, so they hold themselves together but will come apart. Then dielectric grease and put them together. I hadn't broken mine in several years, but they aren't stubborn to come apart either.
