    I have a 8.2 v plow and all of a sudden the thing will not lift. It will go left and right but to get it to go up I need to move the stick back a little and engage the rocker. Any ideas. I thought it was low on fluid so I added fluid and it did not help.

    if can you, swap controllers and see if thats your problem. Any controller (Straight or V) will make it go up or down.

    Check your plow plugs and make sure all the leads are making good contact....

    Sounds like an open connection in your joystick.Those wires in there are extremely small gauge.Check them + your connections of course.
