    Hi all i was out plowing today and my plow worked fine. I went out a second time and my plow kept turning itself off. At first i thought i hit the on/off button but after awhile i watched for it. I had to turn the power back on to it about 6 times while plowing. Any ideas? Gould the plugin at the plow maybe not making a good connection? Its a 2006 gmc 2500 with dual batteries which were chanded this summer (both were). Voltage drop problem? Or connector?

    just the plow, was the light on the controller off when it shut down? Mine did this last year during a few storms and it ended up being the red wire that plugs in the fuse box. just wigled the wire and my light on my handheld went on and off. just made a better connection and hasnt done it again.

    Sounds like you may need a new fishstick. Try swapping out controls with someone to see if that's the problem.

    well i tried it again and it happened once this time i had the radio on and the radio quit for a few seconds. so im thinking its due to voltage drop
