    Hi I'm new to forum..wow what a resource!! I recently changed over a EZ mount classic from a 1987 Dodge to a 1997 Dodge Ram...plow is about 6 years old...changeover went smooth...( mounting carton from CPW..Thanks guys!)...HOWEVER!!..went into barn the other day..truck battery was dead..( pretty new battery)I jumped it with a 200 amp batt charger and got it running...when I went to raise plow..nothing..no light even on the controller ( smooth faced four button control with six pin square white plug)..checked the 10 amp fuse and it was blown , replaced it..when I switched the controller switch it blew another fuse, and another... with controller unplugged fuse doesn't't blow?..checked for shorts..can find none and it was working fine when parked a week ago..was wondering if a short is what drained the battery?..then read that it is recommended that power be to keyed power only..I screwed that up!.... there was a tap on an unkeyed fuse that I got lazy and used?..is it possible that I fried the controller with the jump? can I test the controller some how?...would a bad solenoid cause the "contoller fuse" to blow?..any suggestions would be much appreciated Thanks and Congrats on a great Forum...J

    Check your controller wiring.
    Make sure you did not hook the controller ground to a positive charge.
    If oyu did, you may have fried your controller.
