    I started my truck up and when I tapped the up button on the pistol grip controler, the plow raised all the way up and angled to the driverside. Did this just one time, what would cause this? Plowed a few driveways after this happened and worked fine. Anyone had this happen before, want to head this off before it becomes a everytime problem.

    Best that i can tell from Meyer troubleshooting is that it could be the B valve?

    More like a controller glitch. It held the under hood solenoid on too long after it let go of the B valve. Angle left is the default position when the motor is powered but no valves are tripped.

    Have seen several pistols do it just once in a while for no reason.
