    I've been given a brand new Meyer Slik Stik controller. After some searching here and in the Meyer forum, I can't find a definitive answer on whether it can be used to control a Western plow. I remembered seeing something posted by B&B that included a picture, but that was over in the Meyer forum and pertained to Meyer wiring.

    I did check some Meyer reference materials for wiring and pin-outs but can't tell for sure if it can or will work. If not, I'll probably throw it up on eBay and see if I can make a few bucks off it.

    I don't think that's going to work. for starters the slick stick has 7 terminals and the western straight plow control has 6 wires. Plus they use the coils completely differently. For instance to go left on a Western you activate the 3-way and 4-way cartridge, and on the Meyer E47 you don't activate any coils to go left.

    It would require building a harness and IMO really isn't worth the hassle.

    That's what I thought. I'll probably just get rid of it.
