    Has anyone seen the XRV valve let go, wife noticed blue spots in the snow plow acting funny not responding to control. opened cover manifold covered with hydraulic fluid, can see fluid leaking out XRV valve.

    anything can happen. Have you checked to make sure it's tight and the o-ring in place and in good condition?

    it did appear loos tighten just a little, plow is under warranty and did want to void anything heading to the shop whom installed it for there service to fix it, there was a hose fitting loose the last storm had to tighten the locking nut up and buy more sno way fluid. I'll post tomorrow what the fix or leak were from, just my second season with this plow.
