Poppin 10 amp Fuse

    I have popped the 10 amp fuse that powers the touch pad 4 times now. The first time I just wrote it off to being the original fuse, second and third time I thought maybe I got a bad package of old fuses. Now on the fourth time..... (Starting to feel the brick hit my head)

    There doesn't seem to be any pattern as to why it pops and the wire never feels hot. I'm on my third year with this plow, never had a problem before. Anyone have any ideas as to what might cause this.

    Thanks in advance for any help !!

    Have you checked for any short circuits?

    Thanks for the response. May have found what was causing the problem. Had a couple of spots of bare wire. I'd like to take credit for finding them but I can't, had to take it to the installing dealer for a fix. Plowed today no problems.

    I have the old style connection from truck to plow, one plug. The plug from the plow comes out of the hydraulics box and is attached to the light tower in two locations. Between these two locations was a spot where the wire rubbed on the frame. That is where the wires frayed.
