    In the midst of plowing this afternoon, the plow stopped working. No up down left or right. It was clicking and power going to the solenoid. I figured the solenoid was bad so I went and bought a new one, (and a spare!) Installed the new one, got in the truck (almost positive the controller light was on) went to raise plow and NOTHING.... looked down and no red light on controller. Checked wiring and......... Dont know where I went wrong, even took a picture of the wiring before I took the old one off. Fisher Minute Mount 1
