    My brother-in-law purchased a Unimount Pro Plow, and I picked it up with my truck. It worked just fine on my truck, but now it doesn't work on his. The pump clicks, but doesn't run. Tried the seloniod, but still doesn't work. Any ideas? Possibily a bad ground?

    bad ground is very possible. hook jumper cables right to the plow motor power and ground then see if the motor runs. if it does, hook just the ground to the motor and run the control. if it runs with the controller your ground is bad.
