    Hello everyone, i recently purchased a used western pro flow tailgate spreader. I hooked it up today flipped the power switch on and nothing. I checked all the conncetions. All wires have power except the wire going to the spreader motor. The red power light comes on and the green light comes on indicating that the spinner should be spinning. I didnt get a chance to check to see if the motor will do that tommorow. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. thank you
