    First storm I hit something with plow. It wasn't than hard, left wing came back some like it was supposed to. After that the wing would come back all by itself in the up position, truck not moving. Took it to dealer, they put a new hydrolic piston on it and adjusted the pressure. Thought it was fine. Now I notice that it is still doing it by not nearly as bad. About every pass I make the wing comes back 3-4 inches. It moves very slowly when in the up position by itself. Is it just a pressure adjustment that I can do or do I need to go back to the dealer?

    When you say they adjusted the pressure, what does that mean?

    You might be able to tighten the pressure relief valve. Or you may have damaged it when you hit the object. The pressure relief location is in your manual, or you can go to Fisherplows.com. Or just click the Fisher link here. I have hit both sides hard enough to pinch the hose. Replaced the hose, everything worked fine. It's also possible your dealer backed it off a bit when they replaced the cylinder.

    That is all they told me was they adjusted the pressures. There are quite a few relief valves. Which one do I adjust? Looks like I have to take pump apart just to get at them.
