Is it worthwhile in the winter to keep snow and ice out?

and keep corrosive salt and moisture in? If your winch is in good shape, properly maintained, snow and ice shouldn't be a factor.

Stretch the cable all the way out, lube with a lightweight oil, and respool it twice a year. Keep dirt and debris away from the motor, and keep your mounts tight. No cover needed.

Sounds good to me. I was always the bum relying on other guys winches but am hoping to pick one up soon. Thanks for the tip.
