    I have and E-60 on my ram 2500 and sometimes when i go to "raise" the plow is just turns. Sometimes it turns then raises and sometimes it works normally. I am assuming this is a wiring problem, but have you guys had anything like this?

    I believe you have a bad valve. I don't know witch one it is on a 60, I only have 47's.

    You didn't say which way it angles instead of raising but I'll bet it angles left...

    It definitely could be a wiring problem but it can also be the B valve/coil.

    First check the B coil for magnetism ( the one with the red wire)

    If it doesn't have magnetism, check the wire right at the valve with a test light while holding the controller in the raise position... if it doesn't have power, start checking over the wiring including all the connector plugs for corrosion or a loose terminal pin..

    If it does have magnetism at the coil then the valve itself is sticking..you can try removing it and cleaning it, but usually you just need to replace them..

    If it's just sticky sometimes a good flush with Hydraflush will free them up. If the coil offers any resistance coming off the valve with-out showing signs of corrosion definitely replace, the barrel's swollen and will continue to give you trouble.

    As B&B said replacing is the best for assuring your little ghost dosen't return to haunt you in the middle of the night.
