    When operating Boss V plow the batteries are drained. What would cause this?

    You might have a bad cell in your battery or grounds need to be cleaned up.

    By what do you mean, Wabbit ?

    Type of vehicle
    Plow model and age
    Age of batterie (s)
    Condition of electrical connections
    Voltage at batteries under no load while running and not ?


    Why would you want to know all this information ? Are you trying to help someone ?


    Lots of reasons as to why, but if no one knows what is / what are / what was, then it's almost impossible to see through a computer screen and give any advice, eh ?


    Bad motor
    Bad batteries
    Bad connections
    Bad grounds
    Bad wiring
    Bad relays
    Bad medicine
    Bad to the bone
    Bad trunk monkey (one that won't come out when needed)
    Bad headache (aka wife)
    Bad Boner (lasts more than 4 hours after taking a blue pill)


    Lots of stuff out there to check on..
