    Went to hook up our newly acquired salt dogg poly hopper, 1.5 yard, and the spinner didn't work. The auger and vibrator worked as they should. However, the spinner wasn't moving at all. Brand new controller and wiring, this is the first time we went to hook it up and test it. Salter is not new.

    If power is put right to the spinner motor from a jump box the spinner spins freely. Also there is power at the wiring side of the harness for the spinner, checked with a voltmeter, 12.5ish volts.

    Hooked wire leads up from the auger connector to the spinner and the spinner did work, able to control the speed too with the auger control.

    Also replaced the pieces in the female side (salter side) of the wiring connector at the spinner because they were being pushed back in and not making good contact or so we thought. But, when we bypassed this connector on the salter and hooked the spinner motor to the wiring harness connector it still did not work.

    Wires to the spinner motor were pretty corroded but we did clean them pretty well. Motor works when hooked directly to jump box.

    So what the heck is going on with this Dogg? Thanks in advance,Derek

    Controller was bad. Special thanks to best truck equipment in ohio. They were a huge help.
