Correct lubrication of pivot points as well as good, clean electrical connections will likely make a big difference. It will certainly add life to your drive motor.
White lithium spray lubricants' would work well on the pivots and all other hinged parts, doors, cabinets, latches, hitches.
Proper maintenance can save you lots of headaches.
Dielectric grease applied to CLEAN electrical connectors will help inhibit corrosion.
