    I have a few issues with my 8.2 v plow. I put a new motor in it this year.If I leave the plow raised and shut the truck off some times when I start the truck the plow will go into float and it drops. This does not happen every time I start the truck.

    My center button on my hand held controller is coming off. Can I buy just the pad?

    I also have a 10 amp fuse blowing. The only change I made this year is the new motor. I have back up lights installed with a toggle switch and when I have them on for a little while ( 15 min. to 1/2 hour) I blow a fuse that shuts down the plow.
