    Odd question here but just wondering...Truck is a 97 F350 7.3 Powerstroke, question is:

    Does it matter which battery (driver or passenger side) the plow is powered by? Is one preferred over the other?

    Thanks - Nick

    Nope it does not matter. Either one will do the job!

    Exactly, the batteries are wired in parallel....both will equally supply power regardless of what accessory they are powering

    Thanks guys, I knew they are wired in parallel, was just wondering if ford recommended it a certain way for any reason. Thanks a lot! - Nick
