    Basher, My connector was trashed. I made up a "make shift" connector but would rather have something more permanent. I emailed you info and asked yea last week. But didn't get a response. Are connectors real expensive? Are there alternatives to this type of connector? 9 pin total. 1-pins6gauge 2-pins8gauge 6-pins12gauge.. The problem with RV plugs. I found one that is 9 pin and it don't really look good for the amps that are required.

    Are these snoway part numbers? Would you happen to know the real manufacture of the connector. I have access to electrical books at work. But just can't seem to find a connector that is capable of the required amp range and wire size differences. Like Newark/allied/mouser etc.

    Here are the P/N 's out of the parts list.
    96002119 Contact, Socket, Gauge 6 1pc
    96002121 Contact, Socket, Gauge 12-14 6pcs
    96002120 Contact, Socket, Gauge 8-10 2pcs
    96002113 Contact, Socket Harness, Vehicle 1pcs

    98002115 Washer Lock 1pcs
    98002114 Nut 1pcs

    96002112 Plug Harness, Power Pack 1pcs
    96002118 Contact, Pin, Gauge 12-14 6pcs
    96002117 Contact, Pin, Gauge 8-10 2pcs
    96002116 Contact, Pin, Gauge 6 1pcs
    96002111 Elbow Strain Relief 90 degree 1pcs

    Thank a bunch.

    When I priced them about 5 years ago they were pretty pricey. An Anderson connector for the battery wiring and a 7 pin trailer connector for the control wires worked well for 3 years for me.

    I was looking to hook up another older plow so I needed to upgrade the connector. My local Snoway dealer gave me a price around $180 for the Duestch connector. I then did alot of looking on the internet and found a distributor for Duestch plugs (I think they were out of Ohio) anyway I called them and they had both sides of the 9 pin connector plugs. I believe the price was about $26 for the plug and then about $1.20 to $3.00 for each of the pins depending on the gauge. If your still looking I check and see if I can find the phone # for you to give them a call to order one up, just let me know.

    Finding some info. Thanks for the info guys. The name of the connector has me moving forward now instead of the dead end i was at.

    It appears the best local (ohio) distributor is (OHIO) http://www.laddinc.com/home.aspx

    Now the hard part.. It apears we need the 24-9 as on page 9 Narrowing down the part numbers is the hard part now. I don't like buying connectors. Lots of studying to figure out part numbers and everything you need.

    YEP! You found it that was definately the distributor that I talked to and those look like the same pricing that they gave me (I agree they were very helpful on the phone as well) Hope all works out for you!
