    I'm with you on that... but to top it I just looked in the local paper that I was running ads in this week (a crucial one because I knew everybody and there brother was going to have ads this week- and they did) For whatever reason, my ad didn't get run, IN BOTH Sections (two different towns):realmad: :realmad: :realmad: :realmad:

    now I have to wait another week and I feel I may have missed out because of this, crap

    Most of the electric issues withplows and lights is all this qwick disconnect bullcrap everyone seems to be begging the industry for. What do I care if it takes fifteen minutes to mount my plowframe,blade and connections.

    Ive hardwired my plow getting rid of all quick connectors except the lights and Im about ready to get rid of change over modules and hardwire those as well. Im capable of turning my headlights to run the running lights only. I dont need modules to do it for me.

    My recommendation to the plow industry is to simplify this stuff and make it last.

    But apparently they seem to believe that people want to pull up to the unit and never get out of the truck, getting hooked in seconds now.

    The old school plows were a lot more reliable.

    Can I get an Amen!

    I have always had electrical problems with some of my older trucks mostly due to other peoples butch wiring jobbs and ocassionaly one or two of my own.

    I solved that a few years back by way of installing a remote fuse block that was specifically for aftermarket add-ons so that we didn't have to touch any of the factory wiring.
