How to install a wireless remote on your dump trailer

To ensure you don't get shocked while installing your dump trailers wireless remote, unhook to power supply from the battery.

Unhook, or unscrew the current corded remote from the pump.

With the Velcro, tape the box onto the inside of the toolbox.

Take the long connector from the wireless box and hook it up to the pump.

Take the short connector from the wireless box and hook it up to the corded remote. That way you can still utilize the corded remote if you do not have the wireless remote on you or if the battery in the wireless remote is dead.

Take the wires from the box and hook them up to the battery, making sure to go negative to negative and positive to positive. Take the small wingnut off the battery. The black wire will be connected to the ground and the hot wire will be connected to the positive side of the coil to make connection. Tighten the wingnut back on.

A common error is not attaching the antenna to the outside of the toolbox. The toolbox can interfere with the signal.

Hook the power supply back up and test your new wireless remote!
