    We've got 8 plows in our fleet, some MVPS and some Pro Plus straights. I would like to be able to move and service all of our plows with the same truck, however the MVP (my truck) uses two wire connectors to the plow and the Pro Plus uses three. Is there any plug and play conversion to be able to use one truck for both MVP and pro plus?
    Thanks!

    You've gotta wire the truck for both plows.

    That's what I thought...

    It's not that difficult. It's just a matter of whether it's worth buying the extra harnesses, and installing them. I've got a few trucks wired that way. There's a thread here on how we built adapters to go between both control harnesses. Otherwise, you've gotta switch control harnesses, at the lighting harness plug, whenever you switch plows.
