    I have a RT3 Power-V 9'2 boss plow. I had the center section replaced on a warrenty claim. Since I received the plow back it has been a bear mounting the plow to the truck. I believe the plow sets higher now, than it did, were the pins slide into the mount. I measured the hole in the mount on the truck and it measured at 15.5". the pins that hook on the bottom of the mount also measures at 15". I believe the plow should set lower but not sure how to make that happen. I would greatly appreciate any advise with this problem.

    There's your problem. The plow is slightly too high or the mount is slightly too low. You need those two measurements to be within a certain range of one another for it to attach/detach easily. You need the plow pins to be no more than about 1"-1 1/4" higher than the "top" of the bottom hook on the mount. If it's too high on the plow side when you drive into the plow and attempt to attach it, it won't pivot enough for the light tower to power up and lock into place.

    Thanks for the info B&B, so do you know if the bumper stop on the plow will adjust the plow frame in a downward motion to meet the requirments. The truck mount is at 15.5" so I believe it's fine. I'm not having much luck with Boss's website finding the adjustment instructions yet.

    Wild Bill, for some reason I can't pull up that link.

    After you make whatever adjustments necessary be sure to recheck that the cutting edges set flat on the ground in all wing positions.

    Yes 16.5" is slighly too high. Only option is to continue to lower the pushbeam...which will take some custom fabrication.

    If it's not laying flat on the ground expect accelerated wear on the edges. :salute:
