Suggestions for repairing two wire power supply connector on Fisher Plow

    Hi folks,

    Here is my problem. Have a used 2000 GMC K2500 with an 8 foot Fisher Minute Mount. The plow has three connectors, including the power supply. Previous owner did not do a great job of protecting the electrical connectors in the off season. The pins in the power supply have corroded to the point where they just won't work.

    Does anybody have any suggestions for replacing just the connectors on the truck and plow side? I've seen great suggestions for the small plugs but not this one. I am looking to avoid the cost of expensive OEM parts if possible. Thanks in advance for any help you can provide.

    and those plugs are great i would just run them and be done. nothin worse than stranded from homemade problems.

    There are some nice connectors designed for electric winches. Not sure you would save $ or headache though.

    Get a hold of Jim at Equipment Specialists (site sponsor) I just did one of my salters where I had to make a harness. The connectors snap together but you will probably want to silicone the back sides and grease the terminals. I think they were $5/$10 verses $50 for a repair end. My local dealer wanted $15 per side for the same connector.

    thanks

    Thanks for the responses. I will check the sponsor links for solutions. I'm trying to keep the repairs cheap if I can, keeping in mind the risk of future problems. The OEM parts are just ridiculously priced at my local suppliers.
