I have a 5K Venom. The contactor has already went out due to water intrusion, but they sent me another with no issue.

You are correct, use it ever now and again just to test that it works and it should be good.

Warn kiss ass , will never buy another one of theirs. I burned up a Polaris 3500 and sent it in, few months later I got same one back with no repairs. They stated that it was abused and it had cracks in the housing. They said it was beat on. I purchased it new, used it three times, and it burned up the motor the thrid time. Only marks I had on it when I shipped it was from mounting bolts. Again, they will never get my business.

I sold it to a buddy for parts ($50).

FYI, Polaris 3500 is made by Warn with a crappy 6 month warranty. If you get a Warn, make sure it is not the Popo crap.
