    thanks DJ
    I worked with the bumper plug and it started working fine until I lowered it..
    then it wouldn't do anything ! Tightened all cables external, and under the hood.
    Chabingo-Chabongo all is working for now. Ah yes..forgot to mention that a power steering hose clam from my cooler came off last night 10 degrees, I had to take off....plow ....front bumper...re-tighten clams, find more PS fluid, happened again hour later..oh have a good one
    Back out I go
    I download reader 8

    Killer :gunsfiring:

    I used to work at a "manufactured housing" community....I am trying to be politically correct. Anyways we had a 1995 chevy with a unimount and had similar problems. Try making sure all the pins are straight and clean both sides with brake cleaner and then put some fresh dielectric grease on those pins.

    Just my 2 cents worth
  8. have same problem make shure ground is good at plug otherwise the unit will try to ground any way it can!!clean and greased and zip tie together if you have to

    uni mount

    you will probably have to replace the plow and truck side plugs ,it is a common problem the pins get loose and loose contact if you can move the plug around or wire tie it together then they are loose.
