    Ok, snowex and sure flow vibrator. instead of running a new line and switch into the truck,can I slice the vibrator wire into the wire for the salter so I only need to toggle one switch.

    I did that with an old 575 style tailgate. No problems.

    If you don't run it too long I can't see a problem. Everything else has spinner or auger or whatever control so the extra vibrator gets a separate toggle.

    At most it will run 5 minutes. It only has an on/off switch.

    Yeah should be just fine with that little guy. Just make sure you don't run it to long empty cause it will rattle the crap out of everything.
