    I thought I had it. I changed the fluid and it stopped whining. I ran it for about two hours this morning... noticed it started whining then lost all power to my control.I turned the remote off and it still was making noise. So I unplugged the main power to the pump. Waited a few minutes plugged it back in and it still made a whining noise, but it had enough power to raise so I could make it home.
    Any ideas before i get started diagnosing.
    This problem is on my htv 28v plow. I didn't miss any work thanks to my wifes truck and plow.
    My wifes wireless remote sure has a problem with staying on. Brand new batteries this morning and it shuts off while in use. Also poor response or reception.MT plow w/dp Any tips

    Check the battery housing sometimes they get dropped on there end and the batteries shift bending the contacts further apart and creating a poor connection, also make sure the black plastic holder itself isn't broken.
