    Ok So when i started out my morning driving to my first lot I went to put it in the scoop position and only passenger side moved.. then slowly nothing was moving. Drained the fluid because my breather top has broken and I think its allowing water to get in with the fluid. Refilled fluid lifted plow and then put it in scoop. This worked ok until right at the end pump gargled and stopped moving plow, then ran smooth. I'm thinking maybe air? But how do i bleed the system? Any info will be a great help as there is a big storm on the way! Thx in advance

    Did you thaw the unit well before changing fluids?

    Start with the cylinders collapsed. then fill and retract, making sure the reservoir stays full.
