    I have an old e47 and it works fine with a fresh charging of my battery but after about 1hr
    of plowing it will only move left when Im try to move it right. Up and down works fine though. Then I park it and charge it overnight and it all works fine again???
    What causes this??

    I know if you don't have enough power to activate the C solanoid all your plow will do is angle left. I just had to replace my switch because my plow would go left but then wouldn't go back to the right. So my guess would be an electrical issue.

    the c coil is going bad. resistance increases with use until it won't function.

    My C coil only has about 15 hrs of use on it since I replaced it ??
    So is the C coil running down my battery quicker as well??.... seems strange when its got a fresh charge in it the plow angles right and left just fine??

    I have a similar if not the same problem with mine, I hooked the plow up for the first storm and it worked great until I got home to do my own driveway and all it would do is angle left and drop, but while dropping it would slowly angle left. Then the next morning I fired my truck up and it worked for about 15 minutes then only angled left again. Some of the guys at work said to run a ground cable to all the solenoids and then ground it to the battery instead of just a clean spot on the frame, I havent tried it yet but its about the only thing I havent tried.

    Sounds like you might have a problem with the charging system.
