    I got the plastic cover off and found the cap on the reservoir loose. Thought that fixed the fluid leak but it still leaks out the cap when I lower the plow??? Is the tank to full?? I added fluid before I hooked it up to get it ready for the season. How much oil needs to be in the reservoir?

    If you filled it without it on the truck it's overfull.
