    sounds like the base lug came loose or the o-ring went bad. just take the big bolt on the bottom that holds the unit to the plow bracket out. leave everthing else hooked up. swing the bottom out and the base lug unbolts from the unit with two bolts. put a new o-ring on and make sure it is tight. problem solved!
