    Ok, i was getting my truck ready to go out because the snow is suppost to fly like now. And on the plow side one of my pins broke off... I dont know what its function is but now i cant get the plow to hook up... What should i do???

    Its a 13 pin (now 12)... Its a 8' 2" 09 Poly Vee... On an 09 Chevy Silverado 3500HD...

    What dose this pin control, any way to fix it? the plow place is closed!!!

    that is for the solenoid command for the smarthitch. put the control in float and push the headgear up by hand that how it was done before we had smarthitch.You can get a replacement plug end from Boss dealer part # MSC04754.

    Ok, thanks... I would assume it is... But is it vital... What dose it do? Any temporary fixes...

    I think how you said it its not ultra important... So it should still raise, lower, the sides should move and lights should work... Right
  4. Yep put it on by hand and plow then when your done cut it off and just get a new plug end and splice away but use heat shrink on them please
