    I wired my salt spreader and attempted to test out my job. Well nothing! I tested the output on the controller and the blast setting produced 12 volts but the On setting did not give me 12 volts. Is there anything that goes wrong on the control boxes? Thanks in advance.

    Hey there neighbor! What kinda spreader you talking about? I have had 1 buyer controller totally crap out and a couple problems with the display on others... they do go bad. There are more reliable universal one but I cant remember who makes them.

    The spreader is a meyers mate. After I removed my head from my a... and tested the controller on the bench and everything worked. I suddenly remembered I did not have a switched power going to the controller. All is well. Used my spreader tonight and worked flawlessly.
