    I have a 2002 dodge ram truck with a fisher plow that came off my 2000 dodge ram the dealer changed everything over for me but the plow is slow moving! I have a new battery, connections are good, new motor, also when I use the plow it drains the power from the truck all the ACC. will shut off. Any ideas what could be causing this? THANK YOU Andrew

    Its sounds like it might be possible you have a ground issue. Check back all major grounds make sure they grounded it properly.

    i second the ground issue. check that there is a ground front the pump motor all the way to the battery. the plow carriage will not be a good enough ground. you might want to check the positive to, just make sure that the wire is in good shape and not chaffed through anywhere. good luck
