First off, I hope you roll your eyes at this but when you're working under that bed MAKE SURE you have it supported so it doesn't come flying down on top of you if you should accidentally hit something! With that secure, make follow the electrical connections from one end to the next. Check for power at every connection. When doing this make sure you have a good ground for the test light.

Tracked it down the other day, finally figured it out. Where the wire from battery goes into "master switch" under driver seat/drive door the wire corroded away completely, came off when touched. Going to rewire it in next day or so but curious if I can use one wire direct from battery to dump motor directly and by pass the master switch since I have never used it and the switch is completely rusted/corroded from the weather.

Please make sure you wedge something under the body when working on it.


Good luck.
