    I've been using this unit for three years now with almost no problems. The bucket controls started leaking (when unit sits for a while) at a small check valve used in each line, supply and return, for a total of 6 valves. I have replaced the o-rings on all fittings, but cannot seem to get the correct replacement part from the factory for the check valves. Also, no one at the factory can tell me about the statement in the owners manual about these valves being "optional". My idea is to remove these :censored: valves and replace them with a cap. Has anyone else had similar problems? This does not pose a safety (operational) problem, just a dripping, only when not being used, onto the hood of the truck which looks like chet!
    Thanks for any comments...
