I have Deere 7240 which I believe is much the same. After planting I remove the seed boxes and look things over and store them on a shelf as it keeps the mice out of them. I also remove the seed dispensing units from the seed boxes, blow them off with compressed air and store them seperately in mice proof containers. At a dealer spnsored planter clinic the speaker suggested at least opening the units to relieve pressure on the seals from the seed discs as this will keep them more springy and last longer. Since I have no heated shop I do all this after planting when it's warm and then I am ready to go the next spring. I just have to assemble the units on the seed boxes and install on planter which only takes an hour or so.
