    I drained the fluid in my boss. Cracked the hose joint at the extended ram and drained the ram. Then moved the plow back to the side it was on. Then pressed the button on the controller to prime the hose to the cracked hose joint. Then tightened the joint, topped off the fluid and cycled it.

    Well fluid is now coming out of the plastic compartment and i don't know why? It comes out mostly when the plow is cycling. What's the deal, i didn't even open the plastic compartment, why would something be leaking fluid in there??

    I probably broke my plow.

    You either simply overfilled it or it's pushing the excess air/fluid out of the reservoir breather vent, which is on top of the reservoir located behind the plastic pump cover. Not a big problem.
