    I use the the 7way trailer plug hot and ground to run a light. You can either run it on all the time or put a switch between the plug and light to turn it off/on when using the spreader.

    Hope this helps. It beats running wire from the front of the truck to the back. I also run the Snow ex 575.

    yes its easy ive wired mine to come on at the same time the salter does ... take your light mount it on the frame or spreader .. then take your postive wire connect it to the positive side of your motor and negative wire from your light to the negative side of the motor .. PRESTO ... your turn on your spreader and your light turns on too ... thats the way i did it .
