    I'm just curious as to what you guys do after a storm, assuming there is no snow forcasted at least for a few days out? I'm talking about basic between storm maintenance to your equipment, whether it be power washing your plow and mounts or putting die electric grease on your electrical connectors.

    Wash everything down when your done and do an inspection on your truck and plow. Better to find a problem by looking for one than to have it show up when it breaks

    I wash all my equipment real well. I also run my truck through my buddys' automatic carwash so I can get the undercarriage clean. Weather I leave the plow on or not, I coat it completely with wd-40.

    Make sure the sanders are emptied, put away snow blowers hand in all the time sheets and gas bills, then go home and sleep. When we come out of our comas, we pressure wash the equipment, and inspect everything restock any bag material that was used. :cool:
