    Hello to all. I'm new here and new to SnowDogg so please forgive my inexperience. I have 13 trucks all with Western and thought I would try a Snnowdogg. I bought a VX85. It seems to have more than it's share of issues so far. Now it seems the controller has failed. Another $300 issue. Can anyone tell me if this is a common issue for this plow? It's just over one year old. I am all but certain it is the controller that has failed as I an checking voltage at the controller plug. When I push the button I always get 12 volts when it works. When I push the button I always get 0 volts when it doesn't. Looked it over for poor connections etc and pretty sure all is well there. Seems a shame you can't just buy the circuit board. Any help or past experience woild be greatly appreciated. :)

    Bash your probably right. It just doesn't make any sense. Money or not, just don't seem right
