    How often should hoses be changed on a plow. I have a Western Solonoid Isarmatic on a Jeep Cherokee. It is a unimount.

    I would have an extra on one along with a quick connect and fittings on hand. Mine has 10 year old hoses on it and still no problems. It just depends on if it get's caught and cut or dies of fatigue. Keep extra springs and stuff too, sucks to be out of service for minor stuff! Stuff wears out, needs replaced here and there.
