    You need to apply power the the raise and the angle right wires (S2 and S3) coils at the same time to angle to the left.

    I know if sounds fishy, but that is they way that they work by directing the fluid as the valves open.

    To make it work you will need a couple of diodes also. I set up a minute mount a few years ago that had a bad control so I used a pair of Meyer switches. If you don't have a fairly good understanding of electrics you would be better off just buying a harness and control.

    The season is just about over, there is gonna be lots of used stuff on Craigslist and Ebay. Get a used harness and controller, cheap, easy, and your done. Thumbs Up
