    I have a e58h and new to the Meyer plow system. I was plowing my lot and all of sudden the unit started moving very slow up, right and left. Now it hardly moves up or right and left. The motor is working and and i checked all of the wiring connections. And those seem to be tight and sound. I checked the filters and clean as it can be, and fluid up to par. When i pulled the filter, fluid was kinda thick but it was also cold. Any help would be great.

    It's froze up. Get it indoors and thawed out then throughly flushed.

    Well the verdict is in and yes had some water in the pump and the internal filter had alot of junk build up.
    But now it seems the coupler lines are not 100% sealed when everything is put back together i have very minimal oil on the couplers. Do you guys think this will correct itself, because the couplers are only about a month old?

    A little seepage isn't uncommon, especially if you're not running matched couplers.
