Good information!! I also tie a short piece of rope around each of my many leads and hoses to keep them from tangling.

The only thing that I do differently is to use Protectant .303 only because the older Armor-All, pre 2006, and lot of us still have a big jug in our garages, will actually deteriorate rubber as it has some petroleum products. The later stuff is a water compound with the worst product being ammonium chloride which turns into hydrogen chloride if it gets too hot (http://www.armorallpro.com/M694_6_EN1_USA.PDF)
