    I did a search but did not find any threads specific to my problem. I have an RT2 and when I hook it up everything works great but my left wing will not move. I have tried to connect and unhook a few times and cleaned plug and put some new dialectric grease in it with no prevail. I am not a professional mechanic by any means but am able to do some simple tests. Thanks for all the help!

    Check your fluid level.

    Check all your grounds.

    Check all solenoids for loose wires ect. I know one of them controls the wing out function specifically.

    I had a blocked line once. Took the line off, the pressure that was holding the wing blew the crap out, tightened the line back up, changed the oil and all good.

    Ok guys I just checked oil and topped it off. I also checked all connectors and grounds. The plow moves up and down great but now neither wing will move. The pump is running but can't get movement on either wing just up and down. Thanks for the help!

    Assuming it's currently in the vee position so you won't be checking any wing retract functions, but you can check the extend functions....

    Pull the pump cover and check both wing extend coils for magnetism before digging deeper.

    Coil with the red wire is the R wing extend coil.
    Coil with the blue wire is the L wing extend.

    See if you have mag on those with the respective functions pressed and we'll go further if needed. Be thorough with the test for accurate results. :salute:
