well i got my snow stage 2 kit today, and to say the least im not to impressed with the instrctions or the supplies it comes with. Anyway in the directions it says to connect a 12V key on power source to the arm switch? what does this mean? im totally lost trying to put this on..im just really dissapointed.half of the wires are to short to reach where they need to go and by resivor tank has a whole in it. Not impressed so far

well, 12v key on power source. that means that you have to arm the system only when the key is on, because if you were to have it armed all the time it will drain your batteries over night. so just run it off a fuse from in the cab or something that has power when the key is on and doesn't have power when the key is off.

Not trying to ADVERTISE but, send the kit back and buy from someone else. Better price, better instructions, and better service. Its all in my signature:thumbsup

how are the snow kits adjustable from in the cab? that must be the stage 3 kit? I think i can get everything i just need some more wire and i just need to figure out how to get power to it with this 12v key on source.

I just used a switch and skipped the whole 12v key on thing. Just had to make sure my butthead friends didnt flip the switch while the truck was off.

I just installed a switch to send the unit power. I didn't even bother with the key on thing. I ran it on constant power and just had a switch to turn it on and off. I could arm my system with the truck turned off.

Mine has four switches. One turns on the controller, one is a manual interrupt for the pump relay (so I don't flood the motor when I'm programming the controller), one controls the gauges (and so can turn off EGT reference), and one controls the 120 volt inverter (which in turn powers the laptop and the 30 volt inverter that powers the pump relay and boost transducer).

I was thinking of putting each solenoid on a switch, but I'm out of places to mount switches.


Yes, the purpose of this post is to confuse everybody and being helpful was not an intention to speak of.

I had a hard time finding out where to mount the pump.Tapping into your washer resivour is the best way instead of using that little one they send you
