Default Plow on my Ram looses power?

Put a Western HTS plow on my 2011 outdoorsman 1500. Every once in a while my plow and head lights loose power completely. Wait a few minutes and it comes back on, like a breaker that resets. Not a fuse. Called my dealer and confirmed red wire to accessory wire under dash. pink-white - ignition node on key cylinder. Checked all connections and fuses. The dealer that installed the new plow is 2 hours away so I want to trouble shoot this myself if I can.

thanks 511

I would be curios about grounds and whether they used a heavy enough gage wire as to not overheat connections causing breakers to click off.

It's a new Western with a factory wiring harness. The strange thing is they say there are no brakers, just fuses.

thanks
