    Need help. For about a week now we turn the key and it tries to crank but won't start. It takes about 10seconds then finally starts. Any ideas what could be.

    Exactly the same thing reported by one of our crew chiefs. I take it off the trailer and it starts fine. I don't think there are any relays so it is either the starter switch, the PtO, or the starter. Since mine is under warrant I am replacing the switch and pto first. Our unit is about a year and half old.

    I swapped out the battery so that isn't the problem. I guess a goofy interlock but.....guess I ought to look at the brake and gear ship interlocks they could be sitting on the edge.
