No matter what I do it seems I always get some kind of moisture in the battery bay of the snow blower...even with the lid closed. I would like to put some di electric grease on the contacts to prevent rust moisture and or connectivity issues between the battery and the apparatus. Any idea if gooping on the stuff will void warranty?

Seems like another design change idea, maybe a latching battery door with rubber seal.

I doubt it would void the warranty, but I'd be tempted to see if it's a valid concern first. If you start seeing corrosion on the terminals then go for it. If not I'd leave it alone.

Would it be worth trying for people whose blowers are having starting issues? Maybe the pixies are having issues crossing the bridge lol

The terminals areally all gold plated as far as I can see. There are a few connectors in shrink tubing. Can't see them as all I will do at this point is Non Destructive testing and inspection.

I've seen alot of connectors in my life. (Pretty exciting life huh. I'm a sad, sad little man) These impressed me.
