    Hi there everyone. New to the forum. Been plowing for a few years at an airport running everything from a shovel to excavators. I've been running uni-mount plows on my trucks but have recently upgraded to a Uni-mount MVP. I don't have the wiring diagram for the vehicle harness. It's a 12 pin harness and I have the relays hooked up and all of the lights are working properly. Trust me, I research problems and troubleshoot them myself before I waste other's time asking questions, but I cannot find any info on the colors of wires I have in the harness here. At the end of the harness that goes to the motor relay there are five wires. 1 orange/green, 1 orange/red, 1 orange/black, and 2 red that are crimped together in a female spade connector. I know where some of the wires go from my unimount manuals, but there are a couple more wires here that I don't know where they go. Anyone have a uni-mount mvp and can take a look at the motor relay on the truck and give me a heads-up? Thanks for your time guys! Oh duh! Don't know if it matters because I've always ran Chevy, but it's a 95 2500 diesel.

    I don't have your answer but I believe this has been talked about many times - try a search. Otherwise, I believe they make a connector kit which would be a better choice.

    Did you get an MVP power harness? If not, you need to.
