Smart Hitch 2 Question

    I recently purchased a new 8'6" straight plow with the smart hitch 2.
    After a night of plowing one of the coupler pins actually worked it's
    way all the way out. Luckily this only happened on one side. Right
    now they are both zip tied in. Is there an update kit for this?
    Also one light bulb socket on each headlight melted. This on the
    new headlight style. Please don't give the standard "never heard of
    that happening" reply. Our dealer says he's been seeing this.
    We have 12 Boss plows and are happy with them. We also have a great
    dealer.(B&B truck)
    Thanks

    Hi GR, I just bought mine about a week ago. When I was there I was told about a recall on the pin handles and the dealer had to cut them down and file them smooth. Is it possible this is the problem?? I guess the handles were getting caught in the snow. I hope this helps a little. Chris

    we do have a recall on the rolled pin. Ask you dealer for part number MSC04764. It seems the handle on the release pin is loading up the rolled pin. If it gets enough movement(load), it will cold work the rolled pin. We have just started shipping the pin kits to all dealers so it may be a week or so before every dealer has stock on the MSC04764 kit.
