MMM arms dropping on 1026R

Just wondering if other 1026R owners are experiencing the MMM hydraulic arms dropping down (when mower is not on). On mine, have to keep raising them back up, every couple hours or so. Have the SCV locked, so am not accidentally lowering the arms.... apparently have slow hydraulic bypass, seep or some such?

Just looked at my 1026R, it has not been started today and the arms are down. I'm not sure and I will try it myself, but seems you could raise the arms and then put the deck hight adjustment in the lock mode and that should stop that.
I just, ths evening, recalled there is that lock position on the deck height adjustment... so, I suspect you are on-target here... that this will work. Thanks!
Thanks for this tip! I totally missed this while reading through the manual. Although it sounds like an unnecessary pain, I'll try it tomorrow. So, first raise the deck fully, put mower height adjustment in Lock position, then rotate Rate of Drop control fully clockwise and deck should truly lock in the upright position. Right?

Another question. In another thread it was mentioned that the dummy plug on the lower dash was for an Independent Mower Control Switch. Does Deere have any plans to actually make this available? What advantage would this switch have?
Will lock the 3-point for sure.... that lever in the picture is for the 3-point....
not the mower....and the rate of drop control is for the 3-point, as I understand it.

I just lock the mower adjustment .... arms seem to stay up fine.
