Big thank you!!

I didn't want to start another string on lubricating the lift system. So...I just posted my thank you here. Hope that's OK. I really went to school on all the info in this string. We just purchased a previously loved 2007 HW276. I am certainly glad I checked out the winch and lift system. Everything was very dry except the winch gear sets. My only question is why do they put a drain hole on the bottom of the conduits about three inches back from the bend? Also was six pumps on my grease gun enough for each zerk? Great forum here!

Dealer told me that was a drain hold for water intrusion.
As for the grease, if just keeping it up on a yearly basis six should be enough since as the roof is raised and lowered, the cable will run through the grease.
