    Use a torch to heat it up and a lubricant , it will come apart real quick !

    I use Kroil to loosen up stuck parts. I have used it on threads that are rusted for many years and the stuff never fails to free up even the most frozen parts within a few hours! WD is kids stuff in comparison to Kroil

    Although it never hurts to have a torch handy and some 2 foot pipe wrenches for those extra tough jobs.

    Curious, is anyone using anything on the winch or other external parts for ASAP pole to protect them from rusting?

    I have also tried to use light weight oil to the threads, however it never worked out! The only solution that I have tried, and looked to be pretty good, was the good old axel grease. Probably the most simple solution, the one that many people do not even take into consideration, however I do consider it the best way to prevent the pipes from rusting. Even the guys from the best plumbing services online also advised me to use the axel grease, as they also use this material to prevent the pipes from rusting.
