    Hi,
    Long time reader, first time poster,
    Heres my issue, I have a '04 chev colorado with a Snowdogg MD 7.5 installed 10/2010 myself, all has worked great since install with the exception of some fuse blowing which was corrected with a service bulletin to up the fuse to 15A. no problems since then. untill now, as I finished plowing the other day, I went to drop the plow and turn off the controller with the toggle switch and the toggle had a meltdown, this was installed with the option 1 in the install manual, I replaced the toggle with a high capacity toggle and now while plowing the toggle gets very warm, almost hot. I am considering using the option 2 and install it directly to a switched 12V. Seems to work well as before, just gets very warm.
    Any help or ideas would appreciated, thanks in advance.
