    I just picked up a mvp plus, when the plow is in straight it has a gap in the center. Is there a way to close that a little more? Or are the center cutting edges bent a little?

    That's normal and yes if you slot the pieces you tighten the gap.

    If I open my computer later I'll post pictures

    If you could, thanks! I definitely want to tighten up that gap.

    You can slot the 2 center pcs and move them closer together but you will have to do it everytime you replace the edge. If you can slot the pcs behind it that they bolt to you only have to do it once. I thought the western factory replacment edges were slotted.

    They welded on pins for older style wings. I'm gonna tear it down and re paint it this summer. Maybe buy a set of wings for it.

    Got the plow hooked up today and the driver side headlight won't work. Bought a new bulb thinking it was blown and that's not the case.

    It may be the module. When that happened to mine a couple years ago, that is what it ended up being.

    Everything else works on it just as it should though.

    I think I read about it on this site. I had a extra Module at the house and put it in and the lights started working again. That also was with a MVP Plus.

    Worked with my other plow. My driver side headlight is also out on my truck when I unplug the plow.
