    My unimount always had a lag time between commanding the plow to raise via the joystick and the plow actually moving. I cleaned the filter and topped it off yesterday hoping that was the problem. It wasn't. It worked fine all night beside the lag time which I got used to, but it ended up cutting my night short because it was barely working at all this morning. It sounds like the motor is running unrestricted; like there's no fluid. When I check the fluid, it comes out of the fill hole with some pressure. One time the fluid shot upabove the lift ram. What's happening? I need to get this working for tomorrow!

    There's something coming apart somewhere in the pump and clogging the filter. I just have to pull the filter out and clean it ever couple hours. It's a pain, but it's what's gotta be done.
