    Good morning lads, I have an 8-10 that hooked up real well but does not want to come off, No power going to power hitch on drop. I figure solenoid, by looking under motor cover i see different codes for operations. Can anyone help me with step by step change? This frost in the air is getting me itchy to get out and man-handle some powder.
    Thanks!!

    Is the arm latch messed up? The latch about halfway between the end of the powerhitch and the beginning of it?

    My bet is on the switch, unless you can here the motor running when you are pushing down.

    If had that happen before. Some times if you check up the front of the truck a little and try to release it again it will releasae. They look at your draw pins. Mine was a little bent
