    yep fluid is fine. i should probably change it out soon but other than that it is full and not frozen.

    how do i determine if the pump is working?

    i hooked the plow up a couple weeks ago and it performed as usual then parked the truck

    The easy way is listen for the hum of the electric-hydraulic motor.
