Is anyone else having issues going through reversing relay modules? Seems like they go bad on a moments notice. Power poles fix is to replace the $119 module completely, and install a new one which entails cutting and splicing the wires in a cramped space. I personally have been through 3 now, and a good friend of mine has been through 2 modules.
Is there any more reliable system, or a way to make them last longer?

I think I would install an in-line fuse ,small enough to blow before relay , in an easy to replace spot. Too high of amperage usually the trouble w/ blown relays .Sound like a lemon. Nothing worse. Good luck

Is the power pole failing in the same position every time? For example, the relays burning up on the lift cycle vs the deploy cycle.

The power side of the system is already fused. These relays are failing from hotswitching and its not always obvious how much current is passing through them.

I don't own a hydraulic power pole so I don't have any good ideas but as sure as god wears sandals I wouldn't be paying power pole $120 when the $12 version is more reliable and easier to service.
