    About every 12 hours of plowing, I have to top it off.

    It's a very small drip from the bottom of the box that the valve(s) are in.

    Assuming it's an oring. Just never had it apart.

    Could it be just a loose cartridge?? Seen it happen a few times.. not a common place for a leak..

    It was an oring boss plug that the top rotted so thin it wasn't holding pressure on the oring any more.

    Replaced it $1.67 latter back in business!
