    I got a call from my dealer, he said my unit has been recalled. I just need to stop by and pick up a new unit?

    You'll need to reprogram your receiver unit on the plow to accept your new control.

    This is only for certain wireless remotes, I haven't had time to ask why.
    Your dealer should be glad to do the reprogram for you or you can pick it up and do it yourself it's not hard

    Check with your dealer, they have been notified by the factory if they have sold any of the recalled units.

    it all has to do with the serial number mostly the remotes were from 07 but 08 if your dealer had old stock because mostley jan thru sep 08 would still use 07 shipments... in most cases

    What is the recall for?

    What is the reason for the remote recall? Do they stop working or become intermittent or is it something else?

    We were told Programing issues, no one whom received a new from me was having problems. Was a pain to get them all back because the guys were not real motivated as they weren't having any problems:D
