    I just hooked up my snow ex control box and I was wondering, whats the best place to power the other positive inside the cab?

    If you are talking about the sub 12 volt feed to the controller (the little blue wire) then hook it up to any 20 amp circuit in the fuse center. If you use a 15 amp it will blow all the time. This is the feed to the vibrator circuit.

    Good Luck Mike

    Just blow up the whole box rather than a .10 fuse.

    I ran mine to the battery, protected it with an inline fuse. You really need to protect the control box....very expensive to replace.

    The factory direction specifies direct wiring to battery.

    I have a terminal connection on my firewall and run all of my accessories (Plow, spreader, jumpers) off it. Keeps the battery cleaner & is easier to disconnect single circuits. Each individual circuit is then tied to a auto circuit breaker.
