    Not sure why you are thinking this is "dangerous" as this is a Auto/manual solution. If the solenoid is not functioning in the auto mode you can manually overide it without having to get out of the truck.

    Coachgeo, so the link you shared to 1951M1078 (Randy) is a aftermarket replacement for the Burkett solenoid to keep only the full auto. It is not a full auto/manual solution.

    LOL, I should have made that more clear.

    It's "dangerous" when I start thinking...

    That should be correct.

    I looked at those as a direct replacement for the OEM. Fortunately, I didn't need to get one yet as my issue was resolved by Andy sending me a takeoff plunger to rebuild my old one.

    I suppose you could still make it on/off/automatic with a 3-way toggle switch (same principle as the fording switch). But it still would be fully dependent on the solenoid functioning.

    I like the "override" idea for manual selection that would bypass the solenoid (should it fail). I was just wondering how it could be done all on one switch (on/off/automatic) to replace the fording switch.

    I installed my litter racks in the trailer, with only the bottom bunk on, to be used as benches for a parade.

    correct... and combine that with your solution and you get manual and automatic. Tried to go back and reword my post to make it more clear that you get both an improved burkett and a new manual set up "if you combine your and Randy's solutions", but the stupid settings here lock out any editing of your own post too quick thus could not edit it.



    Mods Why has the settings tightened up again. For good while now one could go back and edit post their own post to add more/better clarity..... my post quoted above is now locked from editing and it has only been three days since posting???
