    So I was using my sno way 4 cu ft hitch salter on Saturday and went to turn it on and the control box started smoking. Took it apart today and it's junk lots of burnt stuff. My question is can I just some how put a on off toggle switch on it. The control box has a 2 wire pigtail and had a 2 wire harness with plug you put in the cigarette lighter thing. Any help would be great. This just needs to last a month or 2 till I upgrade to a bigger salter!:mechanic:

    Yes. All my tailgates I have had I ran a toggle switch...and hooked a karrier vibrator to run bulk salt. Run it straight to the battery if you want but I usually hook in a solenoid

    We just re wired all the trucks with RV 7 wire plugs (and the trailers too) now everything matches, even all new trailer brake controllers. So everything is the same.

    We put a toggle switch in the cab on the 12V power wire in the RV plug and wired the spreaders with RV plugs too

    Haha I thought I was the only one to do that?! It's a good idea you just need to remember to turn it on if you are towing a trailer that needs a battery charged.

    work/back up lights

    I'm going to add some LED lights and wire them to a RV plug too.

    Going to have to get my wife's label gun and mark on/off on the dash for the switch, we didn't use lighted ones.
