    Had a new xls installed on new truck in April. Just hooked it up and left wing button controls right wing, riht wing button controls left wing and scoop button retracts them and retract button goes to scoop??????. Trying to save a trip back to dealer if its an easy fix

    All hoses are marked A B C D and are going to the correct letter on the pump. Two on each cylinder, do I switch side to side and cylinder to cylinder??

    It was the factory that marked them, they all come that way.

    I'm confused. How did you not pick up on this in April. Was it working fine in April? I'd go back to the dealer.

    Tell the mailman he put the letters in the wrong place.

    Thanks guys, got it figured out. The hoses at the cylinders were backwards just flipped them side to side. Hoses and pump were marked but no markings on cylinders. Bought the truck new and the GM dealer had it installed and I was busy with lawn work in April and just didn't pick up on it when I brought it home. Thanks for the replys
