    X310 backup deck kill switch bypass?

    Just got a new X310 and love it so far except for that switch. It cuts off the deck if I forget to pull the switch and about 1/3 of the time if I do. If it worked all the time I would likely just learn to live with it, BUT. Thanks for any help. Ed

    Thanks Merle.
