    We're getting ready to change the 9 pin connectors and a couple quick questions on splicing the wires. Our plan is to solder the wires and heat shrink them individually any other suggestions to prevent exposure, corrosion etc.?

    Also we'll be hooking the plow up for the first time this year any P.M. tips,we only used it 3 times last year.
    Thanks in advance!

    Thats what I have done, one that is a little easier is the heat shrink butt connectors. If you use those have a tube of rtv handy because if you puncture the shrink part you will want to put a dab of rtv over it.

    I am assuming that you are going to be using the western repair harness for this?? if so, its going to come straight from western with heatshrink butt connectors already on the wiring

    Yeah I wasn't sure if they were heat shrink connectors or not thanks for the info.
    We hooked it up yesterday and nothing works,the motor turns that's about it so it's going to be a hairpulling ordeal.
