    the black should be power to the switch. the white should activate the solenoid. the trick is to send power to the up and down coil and the solenoid at the same time.

    We run two batteries. We just buy an extra battery mount and battery and wire it up. $1,100.00 pretty steep.

    I went there but they want $500 to wire the thing. I picked the unit up for only a little more than that. I just don't see why I can't wire it myself for considerably cheaper.

    Call monarch on michigan near fuller for a diagram. Since they built it they might provide a schematic.

    X2, wish i could help yah further. I built my own using a fisher plow pump and quickly found there is a sequence for what solenoids need to be activated with what action. The main solenoid "Ford" also gets activated at the same time to power the motor. Your does have down pressure correct? I see two solenoids so i am assuming it does.

    My truck has dual batteries from factory, but for the back plow i mount another battery in the bed and run a harness/plug from the trailer plug to recharge it.
