    On my RT1 controller (straight blade), it has a red Pressure Release Button. When do I need to push this button and what exactly does it do? Thanks!

    Interesting, no such switch on my RT-1 V controller, just 3 rockers, same with the other two RT-1's I've seen, all V's though.

    It removes the pressure from your angle cylinders so you can get the hoses off easily.

    Thanks Mr Markus. So the only time to hit the button is when I'm taking the hoses off to take the plow off the truck? Thanks!
