    The right wing on my v blade seems to be drifting back slowly. does any one know why or what causes it? I can figure it out, but it would just be faster if one of the great guys on here could just tell me. That way i could just fix it and be done with it....Thanks guys...

    sounds like some stuff causing the valve to stick slightly open. you might need to run your plow alot to try and loosen it up, then drain and fill with new fluid. or you could take the valve apart.

    There is no fluid leaking anywhere, and the plow really doesn't have any connections. I know its in one of the valves. I just dont want to spend an hour trying to figure out which one if some one here has already had this problem.....

    The easiest way to diagnosis trouble like this is to simply swap the wing relief valves side to side and see if the drifting wing also switches sides.If it does, then you've found the problem.

    If after swapping the relief's, the same wing still drift back, next swap the wing retract valve's side to side, if the drifting wing then swaps sides, then you know exactly what component is causing it.

    If you do need to swap the wing retract valves after swapping the relief valves, they are the one's at the far end's on the front of the manifold.

    Right wing will have a green wire.
    Left wing will have a red and black wire.
