Older Boss V-plow, wiring problems.

Hi all, Been working on my neighbors 91' Suburban. I took a older style boss v-plow off his 83' K5 blazer, rusted out. Its almost all togather except for some of the wiring. I assume the harnesses originally had just plugins, and not soldered taped up connetions. Tried to take as best notes as I could when removing everything from the blazer however
I still am pretty unsure of the following:

Plow frame headlights, turn signals and wiring in the switch, to choose between your regular lights and the plow lights.

Wiring in the 2nd battery, where the 2nd battery cables run to.

How the solenoid is wired in between the battery and the rest of the controls.

can anyone help?
Thanks in advance!
