Hi guys, I'm new to this site. We have a MONROE V spreader mounted permanantly to a Dodge 1 ton. Usually we don't leave any salt in the hopper after application, in fact we always hose it out after use. This year, because of the lack of snow, we have left about 1yd of dry salt in the hopper, truck parked inside our heated shop. I know its not a good idea to leave a load in the hopper ( its not stainless steel ), any one else do this, or am I just asking for trouble? I guess I'll dump it this week anyway.
