    Probably hyperextended past the 2 stops in the back of the plow. pull the 2 pins out of the back of the molboard (the 2 that are stacked one above the other, bolted in place) then try retracting wing. Your slidebox may need some buildup to meet the pin stops.

    if that doesnt work,you may have a bent ram.some plows get assembled with the hoses to the rams swapped and when they finnish assembly and mounting they work backward in is out and out is in.they then swap coil positions to make them work right.the only problem is the relief valve wont work and that is where the bent piston comes from.

    This happens to me sometimes. In fact, it just happened last week during a big storm we had. Parked the truck in the shop and thawed it out while stacking snow in the loader....all better!

    Sometimes the cover plate for the wing hinge gets hung up on the slide box, then the wing can't straighten out and no retract. It is hard to see it ( sneaky little devil) towards the top inside edge.
