26winchrelays.jpg Like the battery, alternator, & any other high-current connections, the winch relay terminals need maintenance.  I labelled each strap & wire, disassembled & polished every mating surface, applied electrical grease, then reassembled it.  I plan to get the most from the winch AND the aux.batt.

Similarly, the starter relay's BATTERY terminal (usually the REAR one) and its stack of ring terminals should be separated, cleaned to a shine, & coated with electrical grease whenever signs of low voltage appear: spurious fault codes, dim lights, slow cranking...

Electrical grease is not conductive; nor is it DIelectric grease, thermal grease, or chassis grease, or anti-seize lube, or red battery terminal spray.  It's very clear low-viscosity pure silicone grease.  Most dielectric greases are HIGH-viscosity silicone grease.  But in the same way that 5W-30 oil is not interchangeable with 95W-140 oil, the 2 greases are not interchangeable.
