    I have RT3 boss snow plow and i am have problems with hooking up the pump motor will not run. i checked for voltage at the truck connector (Battery connector) and i have no power. Could this be a solenoid problem.?? i just had this hooked up a few days ago with no problems.. and help would be greatly appreciated...

    If it just worked try wiggling the tag line into your fuse box...

    So you have power in at the solenoid at least? Big pos battery cable?

    i am not getting power to energize my solenoid which when engaged should energize my battery cable.. where does the black/white wire go? its on the "S" side of the solenoid. which should energize the solenoid.

    my problem is the battery cable that goes to the plow is not getting energized..

    You generally have a hot signal wire from the controller on one small terminal, and the other small terminal is ground
