Winch cover

Is it necessary to keep my winch covered? I park inside, but it does get rain and snow when out and about.

Good in the winter time to keep road salt from rusting cable and other parts that are exposed,

I will try to get pics of my brother in laws winch....bought a month or so apart, mine covered, his not.( his has quite a bit of rust showing)

I've had mine uncovered for about 2 yrs. It sees a lot of rain here in FL. No worse for wear. It looks a little weathered, but not too bad and works fine. I bought a cover for it but I can't get it on and have it stay in place because the winch is recessed into the bumper and its tight quartes on the XRC bumpers so I just leave it off and wipe it down with a protectant and it's good to go.
