    I just finished installing my new to me Unimount on my 01 Dodge Ram. Everything works fine, except when I touch the left angle on the controller it angles right and when I touch right it angles left....What the hell is this????

    Check that the hoses are routed correctly. That'd be my first guess. The controllers are set up counter-intuitive from most equipment controls. I've seen guys that mount the joystick controller backwards and switch the hoses in order to have the controls be similar to that of a loader or skidsteer.

    If you hook the wires up to the solenoids, then might be hook up backwards.
