    OK I got the plow mounted and it works great except the wings are stuck. How can I retreat them to non operating position. Mostly plowing roads so wont need wings once I get them in....Thank you in advance

    Yes I am pressing the retract button. Up and down work great. Right and left work fine also. When I bought the plow the guy told me the wings were stuck and he was right. Just trying to find out how to go about retracting them.

    Have you checked the relays?

    You might want to give more info in your future posts things like " when I bought it the guy said the wings were stuck" can be important information.....

    So there stuck out. What happens when you press retract? Does anything happen? Solenoid kick in?

    they should wiggle or do something if the solenoids are activated, maybe they are really rusted up in the slide box

    Solenoid does not kick in. It is as if there is no power to that switch at all. Sorry to sound like a moron (lol) but really not mechanically inclined. Build homes not mechanic. As far as rust it is clean

    Try a new controller. Use a fluke meter and see if there is power at the plug when you retract.

    Do you hear a click when you go to expand the wing's?

    No Sir. There is nothing. Not familiar with Blizzards at all. Had a Western 8ft. couple years ago with cable system. This is a different beast all together

    The wing on drivers side is in for the most part. When I took the plow off the back off my truck (purchased it ) The passenger side pulled out while unloading. I have the control box with individual switches. no joystick

    So its either no pwr in to the switches, no pwr out, or no pwr at valves test light time

    Take the hoses off and bang them in with a hammer.

    Here's how I did it when my pump went. Just take off or crack open hoses and crank the strap or a cumalong, it will come right in.

    Thanks Leigh. Never thought bout that. Once I get them in I have no need for them......Used to a straight plow anyways.
