    What is the recommended way to store the E47 pump assembly after it is removed from the vehicle for the season, with the ram totally extended or fully retracted.

    always store with piston fully retracted, and exposed part oiled. also, store standing up like it is mounted on the truck. laying it on it's side will let oil leak out and may dry out seals.

    When the Electro Lift® unit is not used for extended
    periods, protect the chromed lift rod (Ram) by fully
    extending it and coating it with chassis lubricant. Full
    extension of the lift rod (Ram) fills the cylinder with
    hydraulic fluid. On Power Angling models, coat the
    exposed portions of the Power Angling cylinder rods
    (Rams) with chassis lubricant to protect them against
    rust and corrosion.
