The heavy + should be connected to the battery through the solenoid for the motor. There should be wires to control the solenoid (an electric switch, you know). The - goes to the truck's frame at a place of your choice. The ground must be solid, you know that, right?
I think if I were doing this install, I would hook the plow ground with the battery ground on the fame or where ever it is located.
The plow control should be mounted for your convenience inside the cab.
Lets review: Plow motor | ground to ground, hot to solenoid (motor side) | solenoid (battery side) to battery | solenoid control wires to cab.

SOURCE: my plow will not go
Sounds like battery cable problems. The motor for the pump comes on anytime you pust a button and the pump makes pressure that goes thoegh a soliniod valve that you selected with the switch. The motor itself might be bad or the wire connected to it is'nt making, of course the salt and ther things plowed wreack havac witht he wire connections and get right into the motor. Useing a test light and a helper being careful if the plow were to move that you can get out of the way of it's motion. there's a power wire on the motor touch the test light to the connection and see if hitting the switch lights the light. This connection right at the motor is most likly and then ther connection at the battery. The control gets it's power from key on power but the motor gets it's power from the battery though the soliods relay. The power is getting to the motors connection you might knock on the motor with the power on. It's safer to do this with a jumper cable the motor should run if touched with a hot cable. remember be out of harms way as the plow can move and get you. Cleaning all the connections of the big battery cables will likly fix it if the motors good and the soioids are clicking and their wires are connected cleanly.

I think you have a problem with the plow motor grounding out. when you raise or turn plow in either direction you have to run the plow motor which is grounded out. ( as in hooking the ground and positive together directly ) the plow is on a gravity drop when you let it down by the weight itself and does not require the motor for the plow to operate. It's your plow motor or the positive feed to selonoids.
