    I don't have anything Buyers, but if I had to guess. The two wires are going to the motor, the one wire is going to be power comming into the controller. The green ground screw I would assume is the ground for the controller. Like I said I don't have Buyers, but that is my guess.

    I have an older controller and followed this diagram. One red directly to the battery, one red to the harness that leads to the spreader motor. The green is a grnd wire, and the other wire goes to the ignition fuse so the spreader only works when the ignition is on.
