    Hi all, Our Western 1000 has sit for a season. Tomorrow AM mid morning they are talking freezing rain . I mounted my spreader, plugged it in and have light to control box. When I hit the go button I get the flashing red. No sound at the spreader like its trying...Took cover off and assumed red is pwer,blk grnd and tested at motor . Zip Checked connectors at control box tried again . Red light seems no power back at the plug. What am I missing here ? If its ground issue why do I have light and red blinking light at control box ? Could it still be a ground problem and still show light at controller ?Not looking forward to having to use a broadcast spreader that will only hold one bag
