    My right wing is at full retract and it won't come out.

    Temps have been above freezing, and I still can't get it to move. I think it has some gravel in the slide box.

    The plow is an 01 I think--4 hoses/2 cylinders per wing.

    I have tried running the control and hitting the wing with a heavy hammer.

    Any advice???

    remove the hoses and pull the pin holding the cylinder and pry out the slide box the pressure relief might be set too low also check the valve for extend function and retract function for any junk!!!

    Had the same issue just a few days ago - while plow had just been to the dealer for other service. After being advised to check the coils, valves and all were working, we found a loose wire running to the coil. Not obvious by any means. The dealer was "CLOSED" due to the storm @ 4pm in the afternoon so we went to their competitors for assistance!!

    Just had similar issue, wing joint cover (cover for hinge point) slid around and jammed the slide box assembly. mine is a 02 version, same build. Had to use pry bar to get the box out until hinge area free, Some massaging with ball peen hammer good to go.
