    Replaced angling hose approximately 2 weeks ago. Added hydrolic fluid, everything worked fine and wonderful. Approximately 1 week later, the plow would not go up, and I had to add fluid. Today, the plow worked for Approximately 5 minutes, and now will not go up or angle. The resovouir is full with fluid. Any thoughts on what to do? Any suggestions/advice would be much helpful and appreciated.

    Did you refill it with blue Western plow oil? Is there any chance that some water got in while you were filling it? Sounds to me like you have ice on your sump screen. You could try parking it in a warm garage over night, if it works when it is warm but then fails again after some time in the cold you have ice.
