    Hey there, I have a Boss V plow and i recently got it back from the shop had a valve replaced new blades and new toggle switch I am assuming my battery with some corrosion had something to do with the electronics not responding at first but my issues I am having is once i life the plow up the right wing will (extremely) slowly leak. I left it up overnight to see and sure enough every time the right wing is down.. I don't see any leaks.. but that doesn't mean there isn't one there.. anyone know what the problem might be? I am in a small town and the closest ppl i can find to help with plow parts and maintenance if an hour and twenty five min drive which isnt ideal.. also I drive a GMC seiraa 2500 HD 2003 and I find that when i have the boss on it i have to travel highways or longer distances that my truck wants to over heat I can pull over and it goes down then i am able to travel again. but is anyone else having this problem.. is there a way to fix this issue. Thanks in advance guys!! :) :) ----Tiffany:waving:

    Replace the wing valve - or if it is that slow just leave it. I had one do that for a few weeks and then stopped and has not come back. Put a HD fan clutch on your truck.

    It is most likely the valve , as stated above . I've had luck pulling them out and cleaning them with clear electronics cleaner or brake clean for a few customers that didn't want to buy a replacement at the time.
