Preventive maintenance power gear levelers

The manual says inspect and clean hydraulic pump electrical connections.How do you clean? Tooth brush and simple green? Do you open up the connectors? If it ain't broke don't fix it ?

That's my theory, however I check the fluid level and spray the jack rams with silicone.

Knock on wood, 8 yrs and alls well.

Advance Auto, NAPA, all the different car parts places, and Wal Mart sell electrical cleaner in a spray can. One brand is CRC "QD electronic cleaner" It will cut the corrosion and crap. a hard bristle nylon cleaning brush helps.

After cleaning I would use dielectric grease.

Our powergear levelers also require greasing every 20 to 30 cycles.
