    Hi guys Im in the process of installing my 8' fisher MM plow wiring and I have it all done and dont know what the "To Switched Accessory wire" is for. Its the one just past the plug in for the controller. Is it just a place to hook something up for power?? Or is it needed for the plow to work??

    Thanks

    You need to connect that to a power source. Usually a source that is live when the key in the accessory, but dead when the key is off. Hence the "Switched Accessory" label.

    That would work, but you should use a fuse tap for a solid, safe connection.
