    I finally got my truck up and running. I am new to a v plow. It is an Boss r-t-2 on an 89 2500. When pushing snow straight or in scoop mode, the left wing starts to fold into the truck. Any advice on this? The right side works fine.
    Thanks, Ron

    Weak or contaminated relief valve for the left wing. On a unit that old I'd recommend replacing it with a fresh one vs attempting to make any repairs to the old relief. Over time and use the internal springs weaken and/or break so a fresh one is the best approach.

    valve

    It looks like they are all the same. Are they? What one, would it be? It looks like there are three?

    Should be the center one is up/down. Unplug one on the left or right then try to use the plow to see which one it effected.

    Thanks, I have a little advantage on the Boss plows. My father in law builds the hydraulics for them. I think they are a well built plow and will last for a long time, if properly maintained.
    Thanks, Ron
