    I coat the plugs on both the plow and truck, have done so for the past two years. I do not spray it on any of the relays or solenoids.
  3. We spray down the WHOLE plow, wires, lights, mounts, everything.

    warning! fluid film will not conduct electricity!! do not put it on the actuall contacts inside the plugs of the harnesses. most def use it on battery terminals and solenoids tho to keep them from getting eaten up by salt and corrosion :)

    Should be OK on plugs and jacks when used in moderation on contacts that are in good shape. I've sprayed the trailer plugs and plow plugs with no problem.

    When the contacts have lost their spring and won't apply enough pressure to the opposite fitting too mulch FF can be a problem.

    For relays and solenoids specifically, wire them up and give them a good spraying of Fluid Film.

    Dielectric greases do not conduct electricity. They prevent corrosion and carry heat away. If they were to conduct electricity they would in many instances cause a short. The contacts in an electrical connection make direct contact and push the grease to the side. The grease (fluid film in this instance) excludes moisture and helps to prevent corrosion. Anyway, that is my take.

    Thanks guys, i was just going to use it as a preventative coating against corrosion.
    I already put die electric grease inside those little push and pull pump motor connectors and coated top of battery and solenoid posts as well. Every thing is brand new so i wanted to get a good start to prevent corrosion. Check out my pics of my plow rig and riding buddy,going to try and get them loaded tonight.
    We are expecting 6"-9" sun. night into mon. here on long island ny, nothing crazy but something to push and try ou tmy new BOSS!

    I would not use it on solenoids. We sprayed it all over the compartment and fryed two solenoids. Fluid film did what it was supposed to great product watch your electrical parts. Even though it cost me 500 for parts still would recomend it. This stuff takes the rust off.

    sprayed it on a solenoid for a western cable controlled pump 3 winters ago and still no issues. sprayed in on the solenoid for a fisher mm2 setup on a truck we picked up last january and no issues.
