    Are the wiring harnesses for an mvp and wideout the same?

    Sorry it has to be the MVP plus not the older MVP.

    Ok I wasn't 100% if they were the same, can I wire up my truck so both set ups work?

    Ultramount MVP Plus and Wideouts use same controller and wiring. Take one off and drive into the other.

    The straight blade wiring is different than the w-o/MVP plus.

    Ok so I got the new power cable w the other 2 pins in it and I got the controller cable and one plug goes to the isolation module and the other plugs into the power harness so my question is what is going to be my 2nd plow plug one of the ones from my 3 wire? I dont have any instructions so any help would be great.

    Everything works but I just have to plug and unplug one wire that goes to the isolation module harness, so if i want to ru a straight blade I plug the straight blade wire in and if I wanna run an MVP or wideout I plug that wire in, it's kind of a pain bc the plug I'd right under my headlight

    What you are saying, you have to unplug the light harness every time you switch plows??

    What kind of vehicle do you have???

    You have a 3port mod??

    Straight blade a 2wire or a 3wire??

    The MVP is a 3plug correct??

    MVP and wideouts are 2 plug, there's a connector in the original harness that I have to switch for whatever plow I want to use, easy it's right under the headlight
