    So I bought a used Horst 7-12 snowing for my 320 Deere skid steer. The blade has 4 wires connected to a 7 pin trailer plug for running the electric valves. My skid steer has no switches in the cab for running the electric valves, so ill have to wire my own switch. So im assuming one wire is hot and the other 3 are grounds? If anyone had to wire up switches in there skids to run these blade can you explain how you did it.

    Quick guess would be
    1 is a ground for all the valves
    3, switched power for each of the valves

    My guess would be 2 wires are for the left wing and 2 wires are for the right wing. With no power applied the hydraulic hoses run the left to right hydro-turn function (direction based on hydraulic flow direction). Applying power to either "pair" will direct the hydraulic flow to a wing (again direction based on hydraulic flow direction).
