    I have a V plow on my truck, and I was wondering if the wiring will work for the straight blades? I believe the V plow has 13 pins but I figured I'd ask you guys to see if the V can operate the straight blades or not. If they don't, do they make an adapter for the controller to make it work? Thanks

    If you have a 13 pin on the truck Steve you can run anything you like...vee, straight, whatever. No need to even change controllers if you choose not to.

    It should be noted, however, a straight blade controller will not operate a v-blade...for obvious reasons.

    You won't have full and individual wing control however you can raise/lower and fully angle in either direction. Basically operating the vee as a straight. Knowing this can save guys in a pinch who lose their vee controller.
