    Yep i clean them once a week in summer and give them a rinse everyday in winter, you got the slx didnt you? Much less maintenance needed on the slx compared to a facelift

    Never & it's still going strong 9 months later.
    Though I do try to wipe through the pole hose at end of the shift.

    I think I've cleaned my old hybred once or twice in the last 5 years and that was probably once too often.:D

    I clean mine if it gets grit in it. Forget where, but it picked up a load of grit off the hose last week and ripped the stop tape to shreds and the tape started to clog up the pole, making it a ball ache to use. I pulled the sections apart and got rid of the stop tape altogether.
