Looking at Power-V, is it smarthitch 1 or smarthitch 2?

    I'm looking into buying a used Power-V, the guy supposedly is selling it for a friend with no truck mount and doesn't know if it's a Smarthitch 1 or 2.
    It doesn't look too old and has the toggle on the side of the mount.
    Are there anyways to tell if it is a Smarthitch 1 or 2?

    Thanks,

    Andrew

    Smarthitch 2 has the latches on the springloaded mounting pins.

    I think it's an Smarthitch 1, I remember being able to basically push the springloaded mounting pins in pretty easily. It also as the older styled headlights that have separated turn signals.
    I can't find any wiring harnesses/ controllers for the smarthitch 1.
    Will a smarthitch 2 kit work?

    Yes they are all the same. All the Smarthitch 2 has that is different is the latches. You will need an 11 pin harness vs the 13 pin......but a 13 pin truckside harness will actually work. V or straight. Boss is good like that.

    Awesome! You are so helpful!
    What about the truck side mount? Will I specifically need a Smarthitch 1 mount?

    Wow, so really the only differences are the toggle switch config, springloaded release lock, and the headlights? Awesome!
