Hello
I have a Hydrotek Power Washer Trailer with a reclaim unit on it and recently when I go to turn on the vacuum doesn't come on.
I don't see a light either on the switch on the left side but see one on the right works.
I'll add more pics when I get over the the trailer and get some close ups.
This picture is the unit I have.
Thank You

It could possibly just be the switch, I always start with the simplest issue. if you connect the wires from the back of the switch and the vac comes on then its just a switch. If not maybe check for a fuse or breaker in the wiring and go from there.

So would I pull the wires from the switch itself and connect them together?

Yes just be careful and preferably have another way to cut the power so nothing is running when you connect them. I used to just unplug what I was working on but I dont know how yours is powered.
