    Dirty how? Like mud, dust type dirt. Just use some soap and water. Rusty, scaly dirt? Use a pipe cleaner or even an S.O.S. pad on the connectors lightly. Be sure to dry very well after done cleaning with either method. Then be sure there are no remnants of cloth, SOS pad, etc on the connectors. Finally, apply some dielectric grease, connect and go make some money!!! payup

    BTW, You should ALWAYS apply a little dielectric grease when connecting or disconnecting the plow. ALWAYS!!!

    Good luck, Bob

    Are you talking on the plow plugs or the battery connections? If you have battery acid on the plow plugs you have trouble.

    Use baking soda and water to neutralize the acid on the batteries they use a stiff brush to clean and terminal tools to clean the terminals.

    The plow connections you can also use brake cleaner to remove grease and dirt then snad paper to clean the corrosion and regrease with dielectric grease.
