    I have a 2005 era Boss 9'2" V plow on a 2005 GMC diesel pickup truck. Yesterday I had to bring my truck in to have a wheel bearing replaced and not when I go to hook up the plow to the truck it keeps blowing the 10 Amp fuse. I didn't have any problems before I took the plow off to have the truck serviced. The shop didnt do anything with the electrical system. Any ideas as to what it could be? :mechanic:

    I'd check for loose wires. I had my truck into the dealer once and they knocked the fused wire out and didn't know it. Plow had no power at all.

    Was it the pasenger side wheel bearing? Not sure about diesels but isn't the ground on the passenger side on the gassers, maybe they bumped it loose.

    Did they disconnect the battery and not hook the plow connections back up properly?

    I just dealt with this as well. The fuse is blowing because the plow is drawing too much resistance (duh). This is usually from a few things but after blowing about 17 over the course of the night and 2 trips to the Boss dealer I was about to give up. I decided to clean all my plow connectors and viola! No problems. The plow had lost its grounds and was trying to ground anywhere, thus drawing a ton of resistance and blowing the fuse. If after cleaning try swapping around your relays (they're all the same kind) and if not it might be a plow coil. But I'd start with cleaning the grounds.

    What did it end up being?
