    I blew a ling to the angle arm on the plow have the replacement part but having problems getting old one off plow. Any idea on what I am doing wrong? I also wanted to say that the wiring for the 06 dodge ram trucks is messed up on mine as well. I too have no turn signals on plow..

    Can you describe your problem a little better?

    replacing a hose can be a pain but it is not that hard to do.

    I blew the hydrolic line for the angle arm. I have a new line but can't get the old line off. I have another back-up plow that I had put on in the mean while I had notice with both plows on the truck that the turn signals don't work on the either plow on that truck. They work fine on my other truck but not on the dodge. But first things first. I can not get the old hydrolic line off the plow to put the new one on. Is there a bleed off or something to get it off???

    Put a pan under it and loosen the fittings.
    (Use two wrenches.)

    Sometimes it is easer to remove it from the ram first then the valve body.
    Only the fluid in the hose will come out.

    It's fairly straight forward.

    Route the new hose like the old one was and top off the hydraulic fluid run the ram back and forth a few times and top off if necessary.

    Clean or replace your relays on the truck side for light issue
