    Can't you take yours off if it's a meyer? If that's the case ide take it off, bring it in and on a rainy day go through, clean and check all the manifolds and solenoids and make sure everything looks ok...JMO

    My EZ mounts come in and stay in the garage. They hang in place of the push bars that go on in the summer.

    If your running a Meyer, keep it indoors in the off season if at all possible. Drain the fluid in the spring, clean the filters and refill with fresh fluid in the fall.

    My meyer plows & pumps get stacked up on the inside of the shop. Pumps are cleaned well. And in the fall, all pumps are tested by the meyer dealer. It is well worth the money to have them load tested every year. They also check for leakes,change the fluid & flush, and replace the seals and gaskets every other season. Like I said well worth the money.
