    Will it lift angled to either direction? When you have your rocker box on it does it lift in scoop? Could be a weak lift cylinders, or motor on the pump,

    Hmm, everything should be the same for these too. I've heard guys take the handhelds and run their RT2s. Will the controller work on another vee blade and raise it in scoop? Say another RT2 if you have one around, but it shouldn't matter if its a newer plow either.

    Sounds like now the joystick is shot. See if a dealer or a friend has a joystick you can borrow for a minute or 2 and try it.

    I had a rt2 that came with the switch box and wanted to upgrade the controller to a hand held. I plugged it in and it wouldn't work so I thought I had bought a junk controller but it turns out I had to do some extra wiring to get the newer controller to work. I think it was just a matter of grounding one or two wires in the truck side harness.
