    Hey Guys,
    I have a few year old boss rt3 8'2" poly vee that I am having an issue with.

    One of the little pin's on the 13 pin harness on the plow side broke off. It seems its just for the left blinker, But I would like to fix this. Do I need to get a new wiring harness for the plow side? Please help!

    There's repair ends available Jason so there's no need to replace the entire plow side harness. Just need Boss p/n: MSC04754 and about 20 minutes of your time.

    A repair end would run you about $40 from ES.

    Good people to deal with.

    I just use stainless steel screws that are the same diameter as the pin, cut the head off and twist in with needle nose vice grips. my plow works fine with 4 of these pins. keep them greased.

    That is the best advice you'll ever get regarding any frequently used harness. I lube mine with Fluid Film. A quality dielectric grease works well too. You can get the Dielectric grease in disposable one use packages at the parts store, 99 cents or so. Well worth it.

    If you can't get a pin and are in a pinch, the screw trick works very well.

    I just ordered a new pigtail myself... I've been being very careful when connecting and disconnecting, but I know pin #13 has a limited lifespan on this one... I'll have to remember that screw trick.
