    I just purchased a new Western 8.5' MVP Plus 'V' Plow with handheld controller.

    Everything works fine ..except it will not allow me to activate the "Smooth Stop" or the "One Touch Float" options. When I press the correct sequence buttons on the controller ..and nothing happens, ..no red or green lights on the controller. I am doing everything correctly ..and even took it back to dealer and they do not know. He ordered me a new controller #95642 but it has a round connector. My connector is a 4-pin square.

    What could be my problem?

    My Western dealer thinks it is the wrong hand-held controller. He ordered a new one, but it came in with a round plug. I have a square plug. He's now ordering a different controller with a square plug.

    I really want to use the 'smooth-stop' option. But even if I didn't, ..I still want the availability of all the features I paid for.

    First thing that comes to mind in the plow control module, or possibly loose connection on a solenoid, I had experienced both of those right off the bat wit my WO...nthen the control. I could b wrong but, I thought all the new controls were the same?
    But then again, I dont have an MVP??

    U have it, I keeps the valve open a bit longer then the motor runs. So instead of the valve slamming shut, it allows the motor to stop flowing a milasec before closing.
