extreme v issues

    Hello - hopefully every one is gearing up for a busy winter. I was wondering if any one else has head the same issue with their extreme v's as I have. My wings are folding back, not a whole lot, but enough to be very aggravating. Last year I spent countless hours fighting with this plow with other issues and I managed to fix most of them except this one. I have had it to the dealer (which is an hr away and charges $90 per hr) and the adjusted the pressure relief valves but no luck. I have wound them in, no change, wound them to where they should be, still no change.
    Has anyone else dealt with this, and have fixed it? I am at a loss and getting ready to burn the damn thing.....:realmad: .

    Sent the pm, but I'll ask the question here. Are the wings creeping back as you are plowing? Or folding back quickly like when you hit something?

    do both wings drift back? does it make a difference if you use scoop or one wing at a time?

    he means the wings that make up the actual blade.

    if i pick the plow up with a strap around the top of the mast, both wings will fall ahead. i seem to remember when i first got it both wings would stay where they were if i picked it up that way

    Cookie,

    I think the creep is caused by one of two things. Debris caught in one of the valves, or a bad valve. I'm not an expert, maybe search for the word "creep"
