I'm glad that Rforsha found his problem with the battery. There's not much to these spreaders, so I'm not surprised that his dealer was surprised at all the work. Sometimes the simplest solution...
We have seen some controllers with the Tyco relays that enable the controller sticking (contact welding). This was a batch issue from the relay vendor, and was addressed quite a while ago. All stock has been checked and tested. As TLC mentions, we are working with customers to ensure that everyone is satisfied as quickly as possible.
A controller with one of these relays will function normally, but when you hit the power button to turn it off, the lights will not turn off. These are two LED's, so they will not drain your battery significantly. If you run into this, contact your dealer for a replacement, but keep your existing controller until the replacement is available.
In short, if you have one of these controllers, you will know it. It won't sneak up on you at 3AM (the worst kind of failure).
