    Hey guys I just picked up a Bri Mar dump trailer and the battery test good/recharge but when I hook up a good jumper pack and press the up button the soleniod just clicks. It has a new soleniod already. Any body have any similar experiences like this and what was the fix. I have not had a chance to really mess with it to try and figure it out yet.

    Has it moved up any? Is it hooked up to your truck with the brake - light plug in?

    I'd try removing and thoroughly cleaning all positive and ground connections. Sounds like you've got a bad one somewhere.

    Yup a bad ground or bad cable or bad connection. Also make sure the motor isn't shorted.
