Hey I have had this problem aswell with the reverse switch. I believe your cable is getting wet and freezing, I've just been dealing with it, I have mine in the shop just about every night at work. I guess you could douse it with some methyl hydrate (lock de icer or air brake antifreeze). Up here we have to be careful about lubing these due to the cold temps freezing the grease or oil, I think I'm gonna clean mine up and throw a bit of my 0w40 in to lube it a bit. See it it works, if not I got a Dr. D reverse switch coming anyhow.
