    Lately the pressure builds up in the angle hoses to the point where the rams wont collapse to turn left or right. The quick connects are hard to disconnect and I have to tap the ball inside the fitting to relieve the pressure...got a face full this am!!! I thought I might have had a leak somewhere that was pulling air into the system but it happens more frequently as the season progressed. Im not sure why the pressure is building to where the ball stays closed....both Q.C. are new this year as are the hoses....thanks.

    Is this a "cable", or "electric" unimount?

    Have you try removing the QC and hooking up the pressure hoses directly to the rams??

    It seems like the QC are not allowing the fluid to return back to the pump reservoir.

    its a cable system...

    and I will hook the hoses directly to the rams to test the Q.C. I should have done that for this storm because this time of year could be our last!
