What would the electrical system have to do with anything? When the plow is up and just hanging there, there is nothing electrical about it. Just the hydraulics.moose__72 said:Another way to look at the reason for lowering the plow is the electrical systems. As we all now, water and salt doesn't play well with electrical systems and I've learned that if something can go wrong, I usually does is the worst possible time.
Correct. But the electrical system starts the action. Salt water is a conductor, and if salt water gets in a connector and bridges the connection normally made by the plow controller, then that plow can come down with nobody controlling it.Mowerpan said:What would the electrical system have to do with anything?
