    I have a 6ft SS elec. Snoway. Looking to put a vibrator on it. The website recommends 2, is this overkill or is 1 OK?

    Also, where's the best source to get these?

    You will need 2. Try central parts they are a PS sponsor.

    I just checked their site...they do have the 80# unites for $183 shipped. Good deal.

    Got another question..probably Basher can answer this one..waiting for him to chime in...

    How do you set these up with quick connects? Looking at the kit it appears to be a hard wire run...from switch to unit.

    I'd want to have some type of quick connector plug or cut off the plug on my Snoway and get another all weather setup that has more than a single +/- so I could incorporate my wiring for my vibrators...

    You can get a round plug like for a trailer but it only has 4 prongs

    I would definatley do the trailer plug idea. I did the same with my lights on my hitch mount spreader. The lights work better than the spreader does, lol.

    i would stay with the single quick disconnect. they are cheap . who cares that you have 3 plugs. keep things stock , makes it easier to switch later from one truck to another

    you might find the 2 pole quick plug handier than you think, in the summer, it could power a transfer pump, aux lighting, a small electrical sprayer.. who knows what else

    This is the 2nd time you've posted that. I went to your link before and it was a sub shop..

    1 single 200lb vibrator should be sufficient. Buyers also has them.
