    So I'm new to belly dumps. My trailer takes 12 volt to open and 12 volt to close and if I kill the power mid dump or close the gates will stay right where they are at that time. My question is once I'm loaded do I need to keep the constant 12volt on the close solenoid or will it be fine to kill the power. I'm just worried about gates creeping open.
