Fully agree, and as mentioned in my second post in this thread, I don't use High Pressure, so if the switches is causing my error, then they do not stand normal pressure from the hose garden. I am very careful with water, I do not even use concentrated jet, always adjusting the nozzle to a spray.

I use a power washer once or twice per year concentrated to remove the mud picked up from off-roading being cautious to avoid switches and bearings. Then stand back a bit and wet everything else. I've never replaced a bearing, never disassembled a switch. It's not a big deal folks.

Wheel bearings are sealed and there are seals outside of that... rear suspension pivot bearings aren't sealed but have seals... stay clear of those with the power washer. I will use a power washer on occasion but at a distance with a fan spray.

I use a leaf blower to blow the water off and out of any crevices and then finish up with a synthetic Chamey. I try to avoid hitting any of the bearing joints with any water pressure because the seals are orientated to keep the grease in, not water out. But as said a little care will prevent any damage, but let me add that the switch’s are not sealed at all so are susceptible to having water enter them. Dielectric grease is your friend but not an absolute preventative. My .02.
