    hey guys i have been ready as much as i can on the site and it is great!

    i have an older meyers 2 joystick wiring that i got with the plow, then a friend gave me a new setup out of is 05 f350. it has the white connector. i didnt get the controler.

    while i was at the local u pull it yard i picked up a very large power mirror control switch out of a late 90's f250 conversion van.

    i would like to use this to control the plow. i looked at the wiring diagrams on line and it seems like it would work. i was even thinking i could use the left off right part of the switch to control something else.

    Uh, not sure that would last long. It would work, but after a few uses it would burn up the board.

    I took a controler from a snoway and rewired it for my meyer plow, just never could get the up/right to be in the correct place. So now my up is right and right is up, oh well I am used to it!

    meyer has what is called a slick stick its worth the 40 bucks ive used one for years not worth the chance of a break down in the middle of a storm

    I think it might work. The solenoids on a plow don't draw much power so give it a try. The slick stick is a good backup plan, or go get two regular dpdt switches for $10 and run dual switches, that's what meyer used to be.

    I have 2 sets of meters 2 switch setups but I like the idea of just the one switch. I've looked at the slick sic and can't find them for less then $70
