    i just put a wideout on my 07 f350 got 3 questions. first do the channels that the wings ride in need to be greased? can anyone tell me why when the plow is in scoop postion and you hit the retract button the wings slam back is that normal? and 3rd i have another 7'6 western plow on a chevy when i just click the drop button once the plow drops on its own this wideout i have to hold the button the whole time to drop it guy at the dealer said it was better this way but i wanna know if i can change it to just drop. i think its dumb to have to manually power it down just more work the whole pump assembly has to go through more power it requires outta my truck and use on the controller down button.
