    I believe I have a 24 series snoway with DP. I dont fully understand how to use it. Can I have the DP activated all the time? Will this mess up the truck? Will this float when encountering an obstacle? Plow will not go down unless DP switch is activated. Is this normal? I just dont know if operating with DP on always does any damage. Like going over curbs on driveways. A full understanding of the plow operation would be helpful.

    Plow should go down w/o the DP switch on
    I never plow with DP on all the time. I use it mainly for backdragging
    Print the manuals Basher posted for more info

    My plow wont lower unless DP is on. Is this a solenoid problem or something else? Every other function works fine.
