Buyers Salt Spreader wiring

I have a buyers tailgate spreader and im not sure how to wire it! On the control box there is 2 wires together (heavier gauge) I am assuming these go to battery then one wire by itself does this go to motor? then the ground wire thats screwed to box any help would be great!

that's right, 1 comes from the battery and 1 runs to the spreader. you ground the spreader to the frame of the truck. and you ground the controller to the truck. there should also be a wire that runs from the controller to the fuse box.

Did you buy it used?

We offer 3 kinds of service; Fast, Good and Cheap.
You can pick any 2;

If you want it done Fast & Cheap - it will not be Good!

If you want it done Cheap & Good - it will not be Fast!

Thats rite, make sure everything grounds well! Use plenty of dieelectric grease.
...and a hint, when u install the plug @ the back of the truck make sure it tuckes under far enough or else the morons at the place where u load your pallet of salt (assuming your buying pallets) will bend that puppy rite under for ya
