Winch 101

Getting a engo 9k synthetic and wanted to know a few things about winches. I'm mainly wondering if I should cover it up if I'm going through mud/ big puddles or just hose it off after. Also is any maintenance required? Feel free to add any tips, tricks, or experiences. Just don't make it into a winch debate lol thanks.

If you are not wheeling when keep it covered. The sunlight will slowely destory the synthetic line. While I'm wheeling I leave it covered unless I need it but thats just me.

After you use make sure the rope is spooled back on the drum evenly. If it get dirty I would hose it off not that you have to. My synthetic line is 1.5 years old, and I have done the above and it's in good shape.
