    Is it me or is it a major PITA to change the fluid on the XLS? Impossible to get to the reservoir drain without removing hoses first. Hose fittings cannot be accessed without removing lift piston, WTF! Tough to do without making a mess.

    Ya, no leaks here(fingers crossed!) There certainly is a lot of fitting though!
