    8'6" ultramount had it sitting all summer, just replaced the truck solenoid as it goes out every year but the problem is still there.

    Controller is brand new

    Plow will only go up, hit the left button it will raise, hit the right button it will jerk.

    possible solutions?

    What solenoid are you using? You should not have to replace it every year.
    Might have motor or connection issues. I'd look into that.
    What fluid are you running?

    Pull the three valves on the side of the pump and check for movement. They only move about 1/8 of an inch

    S2 valve is stuck/not shifting. It's the center valve on the hydraulic manifold, with the light green wire to it's coil.

    Either the valve is physically stuck, or you've got an electrical issue causing it to not shift... Bad coil, bad wire in the harness.

    If you go by the book you should check electrical first then check the valves for movement.

    Probably should check your fuses first

    No, fuses don't affect movement.
