From the experiences I've had with plows, ayup...solenoid is where I'd start first. If you can switch them around, try that as a cheap diagnosis. If that fails, call a Meyers distributor and ask them.

I would say the soleniod and/or the connection to the solenoid is likely bad.

They should be right on the plow mount, near the motor. There are three little cylindrical metal objects, with power going to them. They are usually A, B, and C. One is up, one is left and one is right. A quick Google search will likely net you a manual in .pdf.
