l have a 2017 Meyer drive pro 6.8 feet ...l hooked up the my plow after sitting under a cover all summer....it moves up and down fine, it will angle left fine but not right....straighten the blade press the right angle button it angles left. l changed the fluid, l switched the solenoids positions still does the same pulled the left hose off put air through it, not plugged. Replaced hose, attempted to angle again, same, angles left only. removed hose again no fluid in hose. no fluid coming from power angle block for left side. At a stand still....any ideas

Swap the coils, if the problem fallows the coil
Replace it,
If one of the coils looks bald, a bulg, smells like it’s been burnt (electrical smell) or is hard to slide off replace it

Replace the "C" valve as thats what controls the plow going right.

While it could be the valve check the coil first the coil could be burnt or shorted or worn out.
He said he swapped the coils, so thats why I mentioned the valve, He should have another person engage the switch or controller to angle right, and use a screwdriver to see if there is magnetism to the C Coill, or probe the wire to see if there is power to the C coil when engaged.

Yes, that’s why I said to check the coil.

it could be the c valve and it very well could be.
everybody is quick to replace them when sometimes they just have a chunk of debris in them and they could be cleaned out and re-installed.
a lot of these plow , pump manufactures , are quick in the manufacturing process and there’s a lot of burrs that can the break off and get Jammed in the valve.
