    Just finished the install on a new Salt Dogg 1500 and the auger seems to be giving me fits. When I turn it on the auger turns briefly and the spinner turns for a few seconds. Then the controller resets to whatever the dials are set at. Problem is the auger speed will not leave 0...... no matter where the dial is at the digital readout is 0 and the auger will not turn. When I turn on the vibrator on occassion the digitals go a little wacky too.

    I'm thinking I have a bad controller since there's power back there during the test sequence it goes through on power up. Anyone else encounter this?

    I don't know - the spinner, vibrator, and power on all work perfect. The only ground on the unit is to the battery actually and it's clean and tight. Got a call into buyers to see what we can figure out. I think the controller is defective.
