Michdeere did you go back to your dealer or contact Western? I'd like to have it replaced because if I back out in a street and the thing goes off and I get clipped I'm going to be pissed.[/QUOTE]
Yeah, I talked to my dealer (whatever good that did). They say they'll sell me a new one then they ship mine to Western. Western will evaluate it and if it's found to be their problem, then they'll refund the price of the new controller. What kind of "warranty" is that? Had a similar issue on this MVP when it was brand new. Oil was leaking from a bad weld that held the fitting for the filler plug in the reservoir. (I could see daylight through it when I took it off) The dealer still wanted me to buy the new reservoir, wait 3 days for it to arrive, then they'd send mine to Western for "evaluation" to determine if it's a warranty issue. I've always been a Western guy but I guess that's because I've had no problems 'til now.
