    Hi...first post. I'm new to plowing and have a 7.5' curtis plow on a '95 F-150. The electrical plug is down low attached to the plow frame and I seem to be having problems with the connection (I have read the other threads concerning this problem). Here are my questions...

    1. What is the recommended grease to use on the connections, does it make a difference???

    2. How difficult would it be to move the connection up higher i.e. through the grill. Could I do it myself or could any mechanic do it without costing a fortune (no curtis dealers around here)?

    Otherwise just want to say that the curtis plow performed above my expectations through our first snow of the season. I'm hoping my luck holds up for the rest of winter. Thanks for your help!

    I use electrical dielectric grease. I think the grease used on spark plugs is dielectric also. You need something to stop corrosion that won't conduct electricity. I use it on my trailer plugs, too. I've got the same plow, same setup for the plug in, and except for a broken wire in the cable caused by bending when raising and lowering the plow, haven't had any problems.
