    I have an older (12 year old) 2590 with DP mounted on a 2004 Dodge ram 1500. i have owned the plow since new and moved it from truck to truck. it has been on this truck now for almost 5 years. we finally got our first snow last night and i had problems with low voltage. whenever i engaged the DP the voltage gauge would fall off completely and the vehicle would tell me to check my gauges. when i turned off the DP and or raised the plow everything worked fine. any ideas?

    i had the truck's charging and battery looked at this morning by the local dodge dealer and he found nothing wrong and of coursed pointed to a porblem with the plow. any ideas?
