  • DONT'T open trim cap while DOWN!

    Yes, i did it... I was testing my trim system on the workbench in the basement and forgot it was down... Opened the cap, there was always a slight hiss noise so it didn't seem unusual this time, except that I was greeted in the face by a nice gush of trim fluid... sweater still smells like it lol. The boxes in the basement have spots all over them from the drops! the sliding door in the basement is also kinda coated. DON'T open it while its down!

    Never had an issue when up or down. My guess is it was foamed up from getting air in the system, and built up pressure. Yeah that makes a mess.
    If ya can't fix it with a hammer,ya got yourself an electrical problem.
