    I have a problem with my Western Uni-Mount MVP. Two weeks ago I dropped reverse out of this truck. I pulled it into a heated shop, dropped the plow and spreader and took the truck to have the tranny rebuilt. Everything on the plow worked perfectly the day I dropped it. Today I pulled the truck into the shop and hooked up the plow. The right wing moved back about 3 inches, and now no plow movement at all. The motor runs when I push the buttons on the controller but no plow movement. I drained the fluid, removed the reservoir and cleaned the filter, and both pick-up screens, put it all back together and nothing. Does anyone have any ideas on what to try next?

    I would first clean all the connectors on the plugs. You may have some built up corrosion on the pins.

    Ok so after a couple different times to work on this I have the up and down working, and the right wing working. The left wing is still dead in the water doing nothing. I am going to buy repair plugs Monday and put them in. If that doesn't work I am going to buy a Boss V plow for the truck. Anyone have any other ideas?
