    **mvp unimount wing bleeding back**

    My MVP right wing will sometimes bleed back towards V from straight position. I haven't really noticed it bleeding back from scoop. Is this a relief valve going bad?

    More than likely yes. I would fix it soon. Ran into a similar problem last year and rode the season out and never thought much of it. First snow this season my right wing would no longer function in scoop mode and i was left with basically a straight blade all night.

    Thanks Grasskickin. The relief valve is the only problem I can come up with. Now I just need to find the right one. How much did the part cost you?

    Sounds like crossover relief valve leaking. These can be removed, inspected, cleaned and re-installed. May just be a bit of dirt under the ball valve or a broken spring. They aren't a lot of money, costs more to have someone do it than the part. There are two, one for each angle ram.
