    Have a 9' MM2 plow. It is having problems , it wont go down all the time. It will do everything else fine. I have been told to bend the pins in the connectors to fix. Is there any other tricks that are better? When this happens i can get out of the truck and just touch the connector and the blade drops. If there is no other idea i will bend the pins. This just seems like a good way to break the pins off. Thanks Doug

    Did you try applying some Dielectric grease?

    If your connectors are worn, you can buy repair kits for either end.

    Before you replace the ends, take a pair of channel lock pliers and give the plow side connector a few gentle squeezes, make sure all connections are clean on boht sicdes of the plugs and apply some dielectric grease.

    Wow, thanks for all the help so fast! I have tried dialelectric grease , i thought maybe i had it on to thick so i cleaned it out and applied a light coating. I think i will try a clamp method to keep the connector tight. Thanks again. Doug
