BOSS Plow Smarthitch 2 Won't "Unmount"

    BOSS Plow Smarthitch 2 Won't "Unmount".

    Just did the every couple year Power Cable Replacement on the BOSS Straight plow with Smarthitch 2. (Its ALWAYS a bad ground.)

    I try to do my own service, just because it's simpler.

    My current problem. Sat for the whole summer. It Snowed, and as usual, It wouldn't mount.

    Replaced the power cable sets (I keep a set around, cause I know it's going to need it), and it mounted right up.

    Plowed, came back, and now It won't "Unmount".
    Whines like the pump is working, but won't fold forward.

    Good news is that I can make it fold forward using the plow control, and telling it to "lift" with the smarthitch in the Unmount configuration.

    I'm sure it's a simple fix, and I'm sure I'm not the first to have the problem.

    Anybody know what connection, fuse, solenoid, relay, gizmo needs to be replaced, cleaned or yelled at?

    Thanks
