    hey guys
    I'm still using my rt2 v plow, & got a touchpad controller. I plugged it in last night & I got nothing...... tried with key on / off, etc. but nothing. Any suggestions? I was hoping to graduate from the toggle switch box this year :(

    Check your relays under the hood. One may have came loose or need to be replaced

    Not trying to be a smartalic, but there is an on/off switch on the controller. Easily overlooked on the first use.

    elecblu-that was my first thought; I didn't see one anywhere, just slots on both sides to hang up I guess. I'll look again when I go out this morning.

    pongow-not sure if its a relay because when I plug my toggle box back in everything works

    Whether you turn the on/off switch on or not it still won't work since there's no ground wire in the control harness on the RT2's to operate a handheld...because they never had them. You'll have to add one at the control plug yourself if you wish to run the handheld.
