    Hey guys. This weekend I took my plow off the truck. The problem I am having is reconnecting the hose back into the pump. I do have the quick connects but it seems the pressure is built up to hard to connect it. Is there anyway to release the pressure? Thanks!

    Double up a shop towel over the male connector you're having the problem with and give it a square tap on the end with a small hammer. This will "pop" the pin/ball allowing the pressure buildup (and a little fluid, hence the shop towel) to escape thus allowing the pin/ball to move freely when you connect it.

    next time, don't disconnect the plow from the pump with the blade turned full lock.

    if it happened because of a failed coil or valve, it's understandable. otherwise...just make sure you don't have anything pushed as far as it will go.

    I like to use a block of wood to keep from possibly scarring the coupler.
