    i just bought a plow truck with an EZDUMPER in the bed. the previous owner told me that the solenoid is bad for the dumper. how do i raise it if the solenoid wont work. he said when he had it at the shop getting the plow repaired they jumped something and were able to raise it up.

    yep... jumper the soilinoid ...

    locate it, there will be too thick wires
    while also pushing down on the controler, to open the proper valves...take a screwdriver, or large wire, and connect the two terminal /wires in the soilinoid
